If the time has come to finally embark on your dream kitchen remodel project, you’ve probably got roughly a million design ideas swirling around your head. One feature of your existing kitchen that you are probably stuck with – for better or for worse – is the windows. Depending on your kitchen design goals, this could be a major benefit or a huge issue. Let’s look at some interesting ways to implement windows in a new kitchen remodel design.
Create a Focal Point
Depending on the number of windows you have in your kitchen, they might be the focal point of the room, or you could use them to frame the focal point. If there is only one large window, it will likely become the focal point no matter what you plan, so it is better to plan for it. If you have two windows on the same wall however, you have a unique opportunity. You can add a focal point element between the windows and use the windows themselves as the frame. This will make the focal element of your design even more striking.
As a Dramatic Canvas
If you’re looking to do something really dramatic in your new kitchen design, the windows could be where you do it. For instance, steel or steel-look window frames are going to be eye-catching and can create a very modern feel in your new kitchen.
Incorporate Windows With Cabinetry
In most cases, the major changes in a kitchen remodel are going to focus on the appliances and the cabinets. Often, you end up with cabinets that surround or at least flank the windows, especially over the kitchen sink. Look for ways to make the new cabinets and the window flow seamlessly, with a valance effect that links the cabinets or similar structure. Even the most basic prefab cabinets start to look custom when they are intentionally placed with the existing elements of the room.
Decorate With Window Dressings
Finally, don’t forget the window dressings. The curtains and blinds that you choose are going to be a big part of the final feel of the space, so choose them carefully. They could be a great place to add a pop of unexpected color, or they could simply be the perfect finishing touch, blending perfectly with your overall design.
