Using a Glass Divider in Small Kitchens

We’ve all seen glass dividers in our favorite restaurants.  They give us a glimpse of what’s being prepared in the kitchen without the distraction of the noise or heat.  Have you ever considered putting the same concept in your kitchen?

Here’s an apartment in Stuttgart designed for a graphic designer featuring a glass divider.  The glass protects anyone seated at the banquette from any pops or splatters at the cooktop.  It also makes the range hood more effective at catching steam and odors.

Design Idea

 Other options for a space like this include small shelves for a rolling pin, rolling cloth and biscuit cutters for someone who bakes often.
