One thing I really liked about our latest flip was the bank of windows it had in the old enclosed back porch/mudroom. Those windows were big and had hinges at the top so the windows could swing in and be hooked to the ceiling by hooks like the ones on old screened doors. So…we discussed and debated and decided to reuse those neat old windows.
As I looked around on Pinterest I found TONS of other fabulous kitchens with TONS of windows.
This one is our sort of inspiration for the back wall that’ll have the range and hood. There’ll be windows flanking it and a white subway tile back splash running to the ceiling.
That kitchen will have a “feel” similar to this one–not as big and not as upscale. The lighting won’t be so busy as this either. What do you think of all these light fixtures?
One teeny tiny thing we’re dealing with is the lack of upper cabinets. We’ve planned for a dish cabinet with glass doors but that’s about it. What do you think? How important ARE upper cabinets? Is the trade-off worth all the windows?
I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a REPLY below.
