Are you looking for a great way to revitalize your kitchen? Why not focus on the kitchen sink? After all, it’s one of the most important elements of the room. Adding a window directly over it is a great way to let in natural light during daytime, as well as provide ventilation to keep the sink from being damp all day. Here are a few ideas from our experts on custom windows.
Double-Hung for Simplicity
This one is perfect for areas with small kitchen sink areas. Double-hung windows can be compact enough to fit the area directly over the sink while still being able to provide enough light and ventilation. Also, since the sashes slide up or down, you don’t have to worry about window panels not having enough room to open fully.
If your kitchen sink and prep area are big enough, you should consider getting a big window. With bigger windows, you also get the benefit of having a wide view of the outdoors. Consider getting casement windows for classic-styled kitchens and sliding windows for modern-themed ones.
Bounce the Light
Is your kitchen sink located in an area where a window won’t give you a good view of the outdoors? Consider using windows to “bounce” light off the adjacent walls. Take note that this update requires careful placement to ensure that your sink receives sufficient lighting during daytime.
Surrounded With Cabinets
Does your kitchen sink already have an existing window but you want to add something more to it? Consider adding wall-mounted cabinets beside and above it. This will naturally shift the visual focus towards the window. Sometimes, before you ask yourself “should I replace my windows?” you should consider this idea first.
