In fact, some noble households had so many mouths to feed that their cooking area had to be set up in a separate outhouse. Times have changed and so have people’s necessities. With time, kitchens have evolved into much more than just  cooking spaces. Now it serves as dining area, a place for a family members to meet and converse after a long day, a place to watch television together and sometimes, even a study space or play area for the kids.

Installing mirrors does not actually make your kitchen bigger; but it does give a pretty impressive illusion of doing so. You can put up few decorative mirrors of varying sizes on the kitchen wall to make the space look more expansive and lavish.
