If you are one of those who loves the natural touch that ‘wood’ brings into your home then this crafty combination of stone and wooden finishes seems like the design to emulate when you decide to go for a new kitchen. Light airy and attractively lit by both ample natural ventilation and artificial lighting this space has a refreshing atmosphere thanks to the playful wooden cabinets and even a touch of natural green; Ergonomic and elegant with natural goodness aplenty.
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.
It’s almost easy to overlook the fact that this kitchen is full of stainless steel. The details in the ceiling and upper cabinets are very much traditional but this kitchen comes into the 21st century when we look at the countertops and lower cabinetry which are all stainless steel and yet fit in perfectly with the more traditional pieces.
When the kitchen has such a great potential for a wonderful view it‘s a real shame to ignore it. This is a residence located in Northcote a suburb of Melbourne Australia. Its kitchen is open and spacious and it compensates for the lack of windows with a skylight a white-based color palette and an amazing panorama window instead of a backsplash.
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
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.
