Lavernia Pierre Kitchen November 03, 2017 18:03:19
The L-shaped counter of this kitchen allowed Jordan Iverson to design it with long and narrow windows instead of backsplashes. The windows meet in the corner and offer a refreshing and continuous view of the garden. There‘s plenty of space left for storage cabinets and shelves.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
While most people tend to believe that the living space is the most popular hangout in any home facts suggest that the honor well and truly goes to the kitchen. The reasons are pretty obvious thanks to the presence of sumptuous delights tantalizing your taste buds but this also means you need to put in far more thought into what kind of vibe your kitchen exudes.
Increasingly white marble countertops are the surfaces of choice in most kitchens and these work beautifully when combined with an island in blue. Islands in darker shades of blue steal the spotlight in traditional and coastal kitchens while those clad in lighter chic bluish-gray shades feel at home in modern and refined spaces. Combine these with kitchen cabinets in white and you have a dashing cheerful kitchen.
A backsplash window is a really great feature especially for small kitchens that can’t afford to sacrifice any storage space in favor of a source of natural light. The backsplash windows bring light exactly where needed and in addition to that they also give the space an unexpectedly fresh and open look. For this residence Jacob Talbot designed a spacious kitchen with windows that cover almost an entire wall. That means there‘s no wall-mounted cabinetry on this side of the kitchen. The compromise is well worth it considering how amazing the view of the lake is.
In some cases a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space they chose the window backsplash strategy.
