Specialty windows can make a stunning kitchen backsplash. Using a specialty window as a backsplash can bring many benefits to your kitchen, such as making it feel more open and brighter.
In this article, window replacement expert Renewal by Andersen® of Portland offers a few tips to help you get started:
Extend the Height
Traditional kitchen backsplashes are around 18 inches tall. However, you can certainly go beyond that if you want to increase the amount of natural light that enters your kitchen.
Install Operable Windows
Ideally, choose a backsplash window that can be opened to provide ventilation. Casement windows are a good choice because they work well in hard-to-reach areas like over the kitchen sink. Simply open the window with a crank and angle it to let in the breeze, filling your kitchen with fresh air.
Use Frosted or Glass Block Windows
Using specialty windows for your kitchen can enhance natural lighting, but can also compromise privacy. As such, if you want to maintain your privacy and still allow natural light to enter your kitchen, consider installing frosted or glass block windows for your kitchen backsplash.
