Something I’ve always found incredibly charming in a kitchen is when there is a window over the sink. It’s wonderful to be able to look out the window while you’re doing dishes or preparing food. There is something so traditional about the set-up and it adds a lot of character to the kitchen.
What’s also cool is how varied the look of kitchen sink windows can be. There are a lot of ways to play with the feature to turn it into a focal point from the shape and size to the color and way it is framed. It can even go as far as to make a design statement in the kitchen and make it feel much more open. Or, it can simply bring in a touch of charm.
Here are 10 examples of kitchen sink windows that range from chic and modest to grand and eye-catching.
