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.
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.
Stainless steel is anything but dull and the spaces below are proof that covering your kitchen in it might just actually be a great idea! This kitchen has no shortage of the color grey but the knobs on the stove pop right out and bring a little life to the stainless steel. Upper cabinets with glass doors open up the space and makes it feel even lighter.
