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.
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
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.
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.
Warm inviting and calming the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
Whether you want a painted kitchen island or long for an island that is polished and far more contemporary in its finish a colorful masterpiece at the heart of your kitchen makes a big difference to the overall ambiance. Colorful islands give the kitchen personality uniqueness and elevate the style of your open plan living. It also sets the kitchen apart from the dining room and living area next to it and also you to experiment with different colors for kitchen cabinets. It is time to move away from dull grays and all too common white as you embrace a splash of vivaciousness in the kitchen!
