This is a kitchen designed by Crescent Builds. It has a strong traditional almost rustic design but with a modern edge. The window backsplash is definitely an interesting feature. It doesn‘t covers the entire space between the counter and the cabinets leaving a tiled section that incorporates the electric outlets.
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!
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.
Planning for the perfect kitchen is an exercise that often involves maximizing space without compromising on form. It is a delicate balance between the two that really brings to life your dream kitchen. A pantry plays a huge role in it all. Whether you cook ever so rarely or love to regularly serve up sumptuous meals for your family and friends there is always a pantry out there that perfectly serves your needs. And unsurprisingly it is often shelf space lighting storage room and placement of the pantry that we tend to focus on. But even the most space-savvy pantries need to be aesthetic as well!
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!
