Melisande Cousin. Kitchen. November 05th , 2017.
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.

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!
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.
