It’s possible to have a bright kitchen filled with light and also lots of storage. Consider windows instead of the standard backsplash and clerestory windows just above the wall-mounted cabinets. It’s the strategy employed by Berghuis Construction when putting together this modern black and white kitchen.
When the kitchen has such a great potential for a wonderful view, it‘s a real shame to ignore it. This is a residence located in Northcote, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Its kitchen is open and spacious and it compensates for the lack of windows with a skylight, a white-based color palette and an amazing panorama window instead of a backsplash.
InForm Design had a similar idea when working on the Blairgowrie House. The concept in this case was a little bit different. The window is not a replacement for a traditional backsplash but rather an addition to one. The window is merely a quirky feature that brings in a little bit of light and a peaceful view for the sink area while the rest of the counter features a white subway tiled backsplash.
