Melisande Cousin. Kitchen. September 28th , 2017.
Warm, inviting and calming, the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades, the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass, ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!
Yes, a large window seat that allows you to lazily catch up on a midday nap does sound great, but not all of us have enough space in the kitchen to spare for such an extravagant addition! For those short on both space and resources, a small window seat with built-in cabinets underneath is the perfect option. Not only does it give you a comfortable resting spot in the kitchen, but also helps you with tucking away additional kitchenware that you normally do not use. It can also be used as a cool homework zone or even a small breakfast nook with the addition of a small table.
New company Plykea launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA’s ‘Metod’ kitchen cupboards. Digital product designer Tim Diacon wanted a speedy way in which to create a handsome kitchen on a finite budget. Already possessing an IKEA kitchen, Tim searched for a company that could make a set of birch ply fronts. Unsuccessful in his quest, Tim turned to his friend Adam Vergette for help—Adam is a furniture designer and a one-time production worker with Vitsœ. The two men hatched a plan to create an online service that would provide reasonably priced bespoke plywood doors, drawer fronts, worktops and cover panels for IKEA kitchen cabinets: and so Plykea was born.
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.
