Why Turn Your Specialty Window Into a Backsplash?

A window that doubles as a backsplash can make your kitchen more open, bright and stylish. A window framing the great outdoors can function as a beautiful piece of “art.” As a leading contractor for double-hung window replacements, we’re here to help you understand how the right window backsplash for your home’s kitchen can be very beneficial. Here are some tips.

Extended Height

A traditional backsplash is about 18 inches high, but that doesn’t mean you’re restricted to that measurement. You can install a large window that lets in plenty of sunlight. However, keep in mind that a taller backsplash means any upper cabinets will also have to be higher, and you may need a step stool to reach them.

Tiled in

Similar to having a window in a shower, you can have your backsplash casement windows fully tiled in, which camouflages the window frame and blends the window into the existing backsplash. For best results, you need to work carefully with your trusted contractor or interior designer to create this look. You’ll want to make sure that the window is properly aligned with the backsplash tile.

Wall to Wall Windows

This is ideal for smaller kitchens. If you have a small kitchen, you can incorporate a window that runs along the full length of the wall. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to find some smart plug-in spots for your kitchen appliances. Many kitchens have outlets on the front of the base cabinets, right under the countertop overhang.
