Transparent Thinking

Glass inserts on the base cabinets? As this room shows, it's a nifty way to establish a conversation between upper and lower cupboards. One thing that often kills a kitchen for me is the copy-and-paste approach to the cabinetry; while an architectural space can get away with that treatment, such monotony strains a standard room. Another thought: These windowed cabinets hold even greater design potential if their interiors are creatively lit. rotpunktkuechen.de

  1. I really agree that it's easy for rows of cabinets to look monotonous. I like to incorporate drawers, open cabinets and glass doors not only for function but for visual interest. This is a great example and I'm noticing some interest of late in this type of taupey finish too.

  2. Great feedback, Gloria. That taupe color was all the rage at the LivingKitchen show in Cologne earlier this year; mostly in natural woods, but also in lacquer finishes. Thanks for reading!
