Lavernia Pierre Kitchen November 08, 2017 06:07:11
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.
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.
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.
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.
The kitchen counter is not usually positioned directly in front of the window. However sometimes the lack of space demands it. This house designed by Crisp Architects has a simple kitchen designed around a regular window to which they added a smaller horizontal one as a way to bring more light in and to ensure a cohesive look.
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!
