Place all the toppings through your new kitchen window, no more juggling, running back and forth, and opening a backdoor to get everything out. When everyone’s done with their meal, simply place the dishes back through the window and right into the sink. This is probably the greatest idea since sliced bread happened.
Easy Access to Dry Spices
If you have a window at your sink, you can jazz it up a bit by setting up spice racks around it, or on the sides of your cabinets if you have them next to the window. If you don’t have that green thumb to grow your own spices, this is your next best option and it still looks nice. Purchase some decorative glass spice containers and you’re good to go. It’s a great way to add a touch of kitchen decor as well as quick and easy access to your ingredients.
Bring in Natural Light
As stated earlier, kitchens without windows tend to look dark and crowded. Break up that full top row of cabinets with the natural light. Natural light in any kitchen looks great, it’ll bounce off any shiny appliance and glossy countertops. A window bringing in natural light will completely liven the place up.
