Kitchen Window Backsplash: 4 Ideas For Better Natural Light

Kitchen Window Backsplash: 4 Ideas For Better Natural Light

March 04, 2016

There are many design elements that can breathe new life into a dull kitchen, but only a select few can combine style and natural light in one go. One of them is a window backsplash, which can make your kitchen feel brighter and more open.

Let Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, the top contractors for replacement windows in Waukesha, show you how with these four ideas:

1. Wall to Wall Design

If you don’t have much room in your kitchen, you can go for a window backsplash that runs along the length of the wall. This will add more light to the kitchen and make it feel more spacious.

2. Extended Height Design

If you are looking to maximize sunlight, you can opt for a higher backsplash. The most common backsplash height is about 18 inches high, but you don’t have to settle for the standard since there are custom options available.

Keep in mind, however, that a higher backsplash means the cabinets above it will be higher, too. Consider your own height and the convenience of reaching those high cabinets before you decide.

3. Operable Design

Most backsplash windows do not open, but there are those that are operable. These options are great for small, enclosed kitchens as the extra bit of ventilation can help ease the stuffiness.

4. Corner Design

Corners make for a splendid backsplash idea, as the unique design of the window can create an instant focal point for your overall kitchen outlook.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
