A perfect window seat is all about placement, along with the right style and color palette. Today we turn our attention away from the more frequently used spots for a window seat such as the bedroom or the hallway and focus on the contemporary kitchen. With social kitchens becoming the norm, a window seat is the ideal, cozy addition that can complete your dream kitchen which comfortably hosts friends and family. And even on the quieter days, you have a delightful and secluded reading/relaxation nook that also becomes a part of the open plan living. Smart, practical and also space-savvy, here is a look at 10 window seat ideas for the kitchen. Yes, a large window seat that allows you to lazily catch up on a midday nap does sound great, but not all of us have enough space in the kitchen to spare for such an extravagant addition! For those short on both space and resources, a small window seat with built-in cabinets underneath is the perfect option. Not only does it give you a comfortable resting spot in the kitchen, but also helps you with tucking away additional kitchenware that you normally do not use. It can also be used as a cool homework zone or even a small breakfast nook with the addition of a small table.
Modern homes seem to be filled with neutral hues. White, gray and brown generally take up most of the backdrop and décor is no different with major furniture pieces like the living room couch or the dining table also coming in muted colors. While this gives you a great amount of decorating freedom when switching between styles, accent hues and seasonal trends, it also can lead to a boring home that is far too ‘vanilla’. Moving away from the generic and breathing a whole new life into your kitchen, a colorful kitchen island definitely shakes up the dreary status quo. Whether you want a painted kitchen island or long for an island that is polished and far more contemporary in its finish, a colorful masterpiece at the heart of your kitchen makes a big difference to the overall ambiance. Colorful islands give the kitchen personality, uniqueness and elevate the style of your open plan living. It also sets the kitchen apart from the dining room and living area next to it and also you to experiment with different colors for kitchen cabinets. It is time to move away from dull grays and all too common white as you embrace a splash of vivaciousness in the kitchen!
We start off with arguably the easiest kitchens to work with as you plan to add those gorgeous, rustic wooden shelves. White kitchens give you plenty of decorating freedom (even though they are a touch high-maintenance) and adding a couple of rustic shelves to this space feels both seamless and aesthetic. Combing a white backdrop with wooden accents and raw, wooden décor is a hot trend in 2017 and so this is a win-win situation no matter which way you look at it. Most rustic wooden shelves come with a raw, edgy finish. This is what gives them their unique appeal and ensures that they stand out from the pack. But those leaning towards a more modern aesthetic can polish off just a few off those rugged edges to ensure that they have floating kitchen shelves that are part modern and part rustic. It is a useful trade-off and will serve you well as over time as you look to transition between kitchen styles and constantly varying trends.
