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.
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.
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.
When there is white yellow’s definitely got to be there. It gives out that fresh cheerful vibes which can uplift the moods. Our suggestion would be to yellow light fixtures over your kitchen island and maybe the top of your walls. Couple it with cool brown bar stools and you are all set.
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!
