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 small window seat can also provide a welcome break from the wall of shelves and cabinets in the kitchen ushering in some much needed contrast. The throw pillows cushions and fabric of the window seat also bring textural change to a space that is otherwise dominated by wood tile and metallics. Whether you use it as a after-school hangout for your kids (as you keep an eye on them) or as a wonderful conversation nook the small window seat in the kitchen comes in mighty handy.
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.
When the kitchen has such a great potential for a wonderful view it‘s a real shame to ignore it. This is a residence located in Northcote a suburb of Melbourne Australia. Its kitchen is open and spacious and it compensates for the lack of windows with a skylight a white-based color palette and an amazing panorama window instead of a backsplash.
While in all the above kitchen designs we have seen a presence of vivid tones and glittering surfaces that draw your attention the last one in the collection tones down the ‘oomph’ with natural shades and sober surfaces that stand out in their own unique way. A fantastic kitchen plan for those who like the less ‘glitzy’ variants this kitchen is spacious graceful craftily built and employs neutral colors to create a tranquil setting. Natural lighting and a lovely rug at its heart further highlight its exquisiteness.
