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.
The kitchen of this lakeside villa designed by Belatchew Arkitekter receives light from two sides. It has counters on two walls that face each other and both of them have large windows that completely replace the backsplash. The windows bring in light but more importantly offer wonderful views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscape.
Another example of great use of lower cabinets in a traditional kitchen. Here there is much less stainless steel but it works so well with the cool colors throughout the kitchen like the backsplash and the glass on the doors. The grey on the island also pulls the silvery hues together very nicely!
The brushed steel is a refreshing look for the stainless steel kitchen which almost looks white with the light shining on it. The beauty of this design is in the subtlety of the mixture of materials. The wood cabinetry almost seems out of place until you notice the huge pantry to the left and it all comes together.
Stainless steel is anything but dull and the spaces below are proof that covering your kitchen in it might just actually be a great idea! This kitchen has no shortage of the color grey but the knobs on the stove pop right out and bring a little life to the stainless steel. Upper cabinets with glass doors open up the space and makes it feel even lighter.
It’s almost easy to overlook the fact that this kitchen is full of stainless steel. The details in the ceiling and upper cabinets are very much traditional but this kitchen comes into the 21st century when we look at the countertops and lower cabinetry which are all stainless steel and yet fit in perfectly with the more traditional pieces.
