Renovation Detail: The Kitchen Sink Window
We purchased our home fully realizing our kitchen's shortcomings, but a standout feature no matter what our renovation decisions may be is the window above our kitchen sink. I often find myself washing dishes for longer than necessary, staring adoringly out the window. Endlessly entertained by chubby birds, bunnies and squirrels, I'm connected to the great outdoors by the kitchen window.
No matter what style kitchen you have, a window above the sink is always appropriate. Whether you have a sleek modern cookery or a traditional cucina, letting the sun shine in is a bonus. In fact, hanging window treatments on the kitchen sink window is not even necessary. I plan to replace our double-hung window with a casement and our surface-mount sink with an apron to enhance my nature-viewing experience.
