The large windows in this kitchen were a major focal point, and the design team didn’t want to miss an opportunity to make a statement. They also wanted the design to feel like it belonged in this century-old home.
Their design needed to be easily constructed at a reasonable price point. It was challenging to do this while giving the space an old and original feel. They also knew they needed to leave space for a simple window shade as these windows face west and the afternoon sun can be overwhelming.
They designed a wrought iron structure with glass shelving. To give it a unique and older feel, they utilized standard iron collars and finials. Once fabricated, they were painted in a black finish and installed. The shelves are the perfect place for plants and herbs, as well as a showcase of the kids’ latest creations.
