3. GlassGlass brings in an element of lightness and imparts a luminous look to the kitchen because of its translucence and ability to reflect light. This material is easy to maintain and offers a seamless, uninterrupted surface. Here, in this example, lacquered glass effortlessly adds an element of freshness into a minimal kitchen.
What is a galley kitchen?A galley kitchen design is characterised by two parallel counters with a walking area or corridor in between. For homes short on space, this type of layout offers maximum efficiency. Galley kitchens are ideal for small spacesA galley kitchen is an ideal design for an efficient kitchen triangle. The three important tasks carried out in a kitchen are cooking, cleaning and refrigerating. So, the imaginary line drawn between the stove, the sink and refrigerator make up what experts call the work triangle. When these three elements are in close proximity, the kitchen becomes an easy space to work in. In a galley kitchen, since the space is narrow, with a counter on either side, it becomes easy to reach all three points of the triangle quickly. Thus the tasks inside the kitchen become a breeze.Also, it is able to fit an abundance of storage in a limited amount of space.
Lacquered glassMake a bold statement with coloured or lacquered glass. It is opaque and available in many attractive shades. In this example, lacquered glass is used as a kitchen backsplash that gives a fresh look to the space. This glass is moisture-resistant and highly durable. The coloured lacquer is applied to the rear surface of the glass so the coating cannot peel off easily.
Choose a coloured glass splashbackThis is a simple cook space with white units and wooden worktops, but the glass splashback makes it altogether more special. The aquamarine colour complements the earthy tone of the wood, and connects with the bright chairs in the dining area beyond. The glass works well to reflect the light and creates a bright and airy feel in a relatively small space.Coloured glass splashbacks are available from a number of stockists and come in a variety of shades – some companies will even colour match for you.
