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.
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!
modern kitchen from Pedini that brings together brilliant aesthetics with functionality and a hint of green goodness. Responding to the growing demand of a ‘green kitchen’ from homeowners across the world EKO uses a variety of sustainable materials to ensure that it impacts the environment in the least possible fashion. The elegant use of wood coupled with quartz and Corian countertops gives it an inimitable style of its own. Its trendy minimal design not only helps save up on space but also cuts back on the unnecessary frills and reduces wastage of raw materials.
There is no doubt that this kitchen is stunning and the mix of modern and traditional is so seamless! The center cooking area looks like it belongs in a professional chef’s kitchen and the stove blends right in with the cabinets. The result: the island stands as a whole like a kitchen within a kitchen. Even the cabinet pulls match the handles on the oven – it’s brilliant.
From wood we move on to the more brilliant world of glass. Glass shelves in the pantry are a rarity since most of us tend to use this storage space in a ‘not so delicate’ fashion. But sliding glass doors for the pantry are far more common. You can use various styles of glass doors to alter the style of the pantry from industrial to modern and Asian to Mediterranean! For most homeowners it is the frosted glass doors that offer the best solution as they bring natural light into the pantry even while hiding the mess inside… A nifty choice that offers best of both worlds!
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.
