One of the most essential parts of a kitchen is the view. Whether you're looking out on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, a sprawl of Kansas farmland or a neighboring Brooklyn apartment, - windows are our source of light and access to the outside, especially during marathon cooking sessions. But even if you're just kicking back with a cup of coffee, a window is a necessary aesthetic. How do you touch yours up?
While the obvious answer would be wood paneling and a nice trim, consider how your window is framed in the larger space of your kitchen. Custom cabinets can be used to surround and draw the eyes to a particularly nice view or light source. Framed cabinets can be designed and molded to specificity, and glass-fronted cupboards can take full advantage of their well-lit position.
Not only do they look good, but these cabinets have a functional purpose in your kitchen. If your window sits over a sink, they can hold dish soap, sponges or clean dishware. If your window looks in on a nook or table, consider using shelving instead of cupboards to store books, glassware or anything else you might want to show off. De-clutter your space and stay organized so you have more time and room to prepare, cook, bake and, of course, enjoy the view.
