Ivonne Meunier. Kitchen. July 18th , 2017.
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 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.
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.
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!
