All cutouts, edges, and surfaces must be treated to keep moisture out of the wood. This makes undermount sinks ideal for wood countertops, according to Paul Grothouse of the Grothouse Lumber Company. Drop-in sinks go well with clear-coated or factory-finished countertops but need a flexible sealant beneath the rim.
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.
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.
