Creating a Kitchen With Personality

The time has come to remodel your kitchen. Whether you’ve been operating from a spec kitchen built long before you moved into your home or you’re simply sick of your home’s original kitchen design, you’re ready to exercise creativity in designing a functional, customized kitchen space.

Creating a Kitchen With Personality - House of Mirrors - Custom Glass Calgary

When you truly take ownership of a home, you’ll want to embed certain elements of your personality throughout the living space. The kitchen, of course, is one room that will become infinitely more functional with a customized design.

At House of Mirrors, we can create all sorts of custom glass items for your kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a custom glass countertop or a visually stimulating glass backsplash, we’ll work with you to create a custom piece that suits your needs.

Custom glass is perfect for establishing the personality of your kitchen. If you’re planning to redesign your kitchen, and you want the finished product to reflect your unique personality, here are a few simple tips you should consider:


Ask yourself: what unique touches will make this kitchen truly mine? When you invite guests into your home, what would they expect to see in your kitchen? Is your love for the ocean reflected in your kitchen’s new custom glass backsplash?

Including a piece of you in your kitchen design will make the space more comfortable for everyday use. While you’ll inevitably sample a number of kitchen designs before settling on your preferred choice, don’t just copy and paste what someone else has done. Go with whatever you feel makes the space uniquely yours.


With the hectic pace of life, many people struggle to invest significant time into their daily meals. After a long day of work the prospect of cooking a three-course meal often feels tiring and unnecessarily stressful.

A number of small features, however, can make working in your kitchen much more enjoyable. Slide-out spice racks, custom glass countertops, and a number of other convenient features, can ultimately make you much more excited about cooking in your kitchen.


When it comes down to the bottom line, you must understand your reason behind remodeling or upgrading your kitchen. Are you simply tired of twenty-year old appliances? Have your cooking needs changed over the years? How much will your home’s resale value be affected by your remodeled kitchen?

Redesigning any kitchen space starts with a consideration of the homeowner’s specific needs. It makes zero sense, financially or otherwise, to install custom glass features if the homeowner prefers tile. Effective communication with each client is crucial to successful customization.

At House of Mirrors, we can design a number of spectacular custom glass features for your kitchen. We are always looking for new challenges, and we love when homeowners come to us with unique ideas for incorporating glass in their kitchens.
