The window seat is not all about functionality alone and you can use one to elevate the style quotient of your kitchen as well. Since most contemporary kitchens seem to be draped in neutral hues along with plenty of white, the window seat can usher in bright seasonal colors with ease. Everything from the seat cover and cushions to lighting above the window seat can be easily changed with changing seasons and trends to give your kitchen a fresh overhaul. Cost-effective and convenient, this kitchen redecorating idea is definitely one of the easiest to work with!
There is nothing quite like enjoying a lovely view outside the window as you relax indoors and catch up on your favorite reading material while sipping on a beverage of your choice. With summer here, the idea of a fabulous window seat that overlooks the scenic landscape outside or connects the interior with the small rear garden or poolscape is even more tantalizing. Window seats combine the comfort of indoor seating with aesthetics of the outdoors; acting as a bridge between both the realms. They are pretty easy to install and in modern homes where large glass windows are increasingly becoming common, window seats make plenty of sense.
Looking for a kitchen that is inviting and yet carries with it a touch of modern minimalism? Marble is undoubtedly the right choice as a countertop material for such sleek kitchen spaces. Whether it is for the island countertop or just the prep and cooking zone, marble gives the modern kitchen a cultured finish even while ensuring that the neutral color scheme is left undisturbed. The natural strains of the stone still manage to create visual interest even as smart cabinet doors and kitchen islands clad in wood complete your dream kitchen.
Not every kitchen can handle a splash of gray and there are times when both local weather and natural lighting of the room demand a lighters and more cheerful backdrop. This is precisely where white can play the protagonist and gray can be used to delineate space, add depth to various features of the kitchen and to give the shelves and cabinets a modern makeover. White and gray kitchens seem visually larger than they really are and in small urban homes, this becomes an invaluable asset.
Even though it might come as a surprise to some, the most popular kitchens in recent times among homeowners are those with gray walls and cabinets in a light hue ranging from shades of gray to pristine white. Instead of using gray sporadically in the white kitchen, designers have flipped the template and have opted to go with gray as the dominant hue in most of the kitchens. The latest kitchen compositions showcased by the likes of Scavolini, Leicht and Snaidero reflect this switch, even as the kitchens themselves still remain cutting-edge both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
