The kitchen counter is not usually positioned directly in front of the window. However, sometimes the lack of space demands it. This house designed by Crisp Architects has a simple kitchen designed around a regular window to which they added a smaller, horizontal one as a way to bring more light in and to ensure a cohesive look.
The L-shaped counter of this kitchen allowed Jordan Iverson to design it with long and narrow windows instead of backsplashes. The windows meet in the corner and offer a refreshing and continuous view of the garden. There’s plenty of space left for storage cabinets and shelves.
While not quite a finishing option, custom stainless steel countertops also offer the opportunity to have a fully integrated sink created in your counter. With this custom option, the sink and counter are all one piece and there‘s no intelligible seam between the counter and sink. Of course, this is a costlier option.
