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 kitchen of this lakeside villa designed by Belatchew Arkitekter receives light from two sides. It has counters on two walls that face each other and both of them have large windows that completely replace the backsplash. The windows bring in light but, more importantly, offer wonderful views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscape.
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.
