Specialty windows are often characterized by their elegant style and uncommon shapes that allow you to enhance the character of your home. While some homeowners think that specialty windows are limited to the living room, they can also be used in the kitchen. By using specialty windows in the kitchen, you can create a backsplash that can easily enhance the room’s overall appeal.

If you have a small kitchen, running a window along its length can add a sense of space and natural light to the room. However, keep in mind that you’ll still need some good plug-in spots for your appliances so avoid allowing your window to run through those areas.
While the traditional backsplash is at a height of 18 inches, you shouldn’t let that limit you. If you prefer, you can also extend the measurement to allow plenty of sunlight into your kitchen. Should you decide to extend the height, however, you may have to adjust your upper cabinets to go higher to accommodate the space.
The windows used for backsplash are often fixed and, therefore, do not open. However, this isn’t the only option available to you as it is possible to opt for the installation of operable windows that can open and close instead. That way, you’ll not only get the aesthetic appeal of the backsplash, but you’ll have extra ventilation as well.
Most homeowners think that glass block windows can only be used in bathrooms. The truth is they can also be used in your kitchen as it’s also one of the most common ways to add sunlight to the room. The opaqueness also obscures the view of the kitchen for more privacy.
