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 window seat is not all about functionality alone and you can use one to elevate the style quotient of your kitchen as well. Since most contemporary kitchens seem to be draped in neutral hues along with plenty of white the window seat can usher in bright seasonal colors with ease. Everything from the seat cover and cushions to lighting above the window seat can be easily changed with changing seasons and trends to give your kitchen a fresh overhaul. Cost-effective and convenient this kitchen redecorating idea is definitely one of the easiest to work with!
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
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 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.
