What a good idea...for your kitchen!

(Designed by Tom Bosworth, featured in Met Home, May/June '97)

If you're like me you imagine your dream kitchen being spacious and open...and a ton of natural light would be key to the design!!! I would rather cook with a nice view of the outdoors than that of Rachael Ray's show on the TV (sorry Rachael). But most people would consider the window space in a kitchen useless in terms of upper storage...but hold up, that doesn't have to be the case! Check out these examples below of where you get the best of both worlds...

So, good idea right?!?! Hope you think so.

I've been thinking about doing this in front of my kitchen window for some time. I think this just settled it! Thanks!

love this idea - we're always so hesitant to cover windows... but in the kitchen, this makes sense!

I think these all look great. But, I must be uptight. Am I the only one who worries about dust?? (Probably so!)

Never would have thought of this. Nice idea.

The first kitchen is so delicious! I can totally see myself sitting and having coffee in that kitchen [ahem..while some one else does the cooking ;)]
