There is nothing quite like enjoying a lovely view outside the window as you relax indoors and catch up on your favorite reading material while sipping on a beverage of your choice. With summer here, the idea of a fabulous window seat that overlooks the scenic landscape outside or connects the interior with the small rear garden or poolscape is even more tantalizing. Window seats combine the comfort of indoor seating with aesthetics of the outdoors; acting as a bridge between both the realms. They are pretty easy to install and in modern homes where large glass windows are increasingly becoming common, window seats make plenty of sense.
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.
Asian kitchen designs are pretty popular thanks to their distinctive form and the soothing effect they have on the surroundings. While not completely in that mold, this kitchen merges lovely a modern design with elements of traditional Asian kitchen such as warm, earthly tones, attractive wooden surfaces and classic shelf spaces with glass doors encased in a wooden frame to offer the best of both worlds. Aesthetic and ergonomic, this kitchen scheme is highlighted by its simple and serene aura.
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.
