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.
2017 is undoubtedly a year when design and decorating world has taken turn towards natural materials and interiors that are more nature-centric. With that in mind it makes plenty of sense to add a dash of wooden warmth to your contemporary kitchen. Breaking the monotony of polished and pristine finishes in the kitchen a pantry with wooden shelves or even a sliding barn door offers welcome change. The sliding barn door also saves precious space when compared to traditional doors that swing open. And if you are just looking for ways to give your old pantry a woodsy upgrade then custom wooden boxes and shelves are a smart alternative to consider.
Here is a lovely kitchen that uses simple colors and neutral shades in a stunning fashion by simply adding a vivacious wall colored in purple as part of the kitchen backdrop. Elegant rich and sophisticated this design is ideal for those looking to strike a balance between modern minimalism and bold expressiveness and a touch of playfulness.
Yes a large window seat that allows you to lazily catch up on a midday nap does sound great but not all of us have enough space in the kitchen to spare for such an extravagant addition! For those short on both space and resources a small window seat with built-in cabinets underneath is the perfect option. Not only does it give you a comfortable resting spot in the kitchen but also helps you with tucking away additional kitchenware that you normally do not use. It can also be used as a cool homework zone or even a small breakfast nook with the addition of a small table.
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.
It’s possible to have a bright kitchen filled with light and also lots of storage. Consider windows instead of the standard backsplash and clerestory windows just above the wall-mounted cabinets. It’s the strategy employed by Berghuis Construction when putting together this modern black and white kitchen.
