Open up to the elementsLarge windows and doors that can open up to the sky or garden are a great way to let in daylight and, on warmer days, fresh air, too. This sliding roof light over the kitchen makes the space feel as if it’s part of a courtyard, but simple bifolding doors leading onto the garden are also very effective.Take a look at more kitchen designs from across the world
