Did you consider the view?
When planning your kitchen, did you consider the view from your kitchen windows? Not just the beautiful views, but the not-so-beautiful ones?
Many times I see gorgeous, well designed kitchens that have views of...unattractiveness. Old decrepit sheds, defunct wheelbarrows, overgrown weedy yards, mildewed garden furniture, etc.
I came to Gardenweb because I am, first and foremost, a gardener:) I design my garden by looking through the windows of my house. Maybe I am more attuned to the views through windows because of this.
I have always felt that the scene outside your kitchen window contributes a lot to the feel of your kitchen. It's like having a large painting or photograph hanging on the wall.
The view from my in-progress kitchen has some good points and some not so good ones. Addressing the not so good ones is part of the kitchen renovation process for me.
What's your view?
