What Houzz contributors are saying:
Opt for made-to-measureThe owners of this kitchen have the best of both worlds – they’ve used Ikea carcasses and finished them with doors from a firm that specialises in providing replacement fronts. With this approach, you can request samples to choose your finish, send over your measurements, and then receive the doors ready-made. The marble and antique glass behind the sink and cooker, as well as the interesting light fittings, give the whole space a designer feel.Tell us…Do you have any great tips for keeping a kitchen on budget while ensuring it’s stylish and practical?

…or install a piece above your hobHere, the mirror only features above the cooker, but it still enhances the light and adds a quirky twist to the modern oven and hood. If you’re placing glass close to a heat source, such as a hob, it’ll need to be a specialist, toughened variety so it doesn’t shatter.Marble, which features here as a partner to the splashback, works well with antiqued glass, as the patterns in the stone complement those in the mirror.
