How to Use a Specialty Window as a Backsplash

It may sound hard to believe at first but according to home window replacement experts, it’s actually possible to use specialty windows as a kitchen backsplash. In fact, it’s actually encouraged by some professionals as they can bring a lot of benefits to your home. For starters, it won’t just give your kitchen a unique look but the amount of natural light it allows in can make the room feel more open and bright. But how exactly can you use specialty windows as a backsplash?


How to Use a Specialty Window as a Backsplash


Here’s how:


Run the Window Along the Wall’s Length


If you have a small kitchen, one way you can use specialty windows as backsplash is by having them run along your kitchen wall’s length. That way, you can add more light and give off the illusion that your kitchen is larger than it actually is. However, do keep in mind that you should leave some room for outlets so you can plug appliances in when needed.


Extend the Height


Often, the traditional height of kitchen backsplashes is 18 inches. However, if you’re using a specialty window as your backsplash, you don’t need to restrict yourself to this height. Believe it or not, you can actually extend the height to allow more sunlight in. To install a taller specialty window as your kitchen backsplash, simply turn to expert windows installer Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis for assistance.


Use Operable Windows


Most windows installed as backsplashes are usually fixed, meaning that they can’t be opened. Surprisingly enough, experts say that you don’t have to always use fixed windows for your kitchen backsplash; you can also use operable windows instead. By doing so, you can improve your kitchen’s ventilation in the process.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
