4 Ways You Can Use Specialty Windows as a Backsplash

Window backsplash is a design asset that can bring style and light into any kitchen. After all, it makes your kitchen feel more open and brighter than it actually is. One way you can improve your kitchen’s backsplash is through the use of specialty windows. But how exactly can you accomplish this?

In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento lists the four ways you can use specialty windows as a backsplash and the benefits of doing so.


1. Use Frosted Glass – If you’re looking to turn your average kitchen window into your kitchen backsplash, you can consider having the glass frosted. By doing so, you can easily improve your kitchen’s privacy and increase the amount of natural light that enters your kitchen.

2. Install Glass Block Windows – On the other hand, if you’re already planning to replace your windows in the first place, you can replace your average kitchen window with glass block windows to use it as your kitchen backsplash. While glass block windows may often be seen in bathrooms, using them for your kitchen is actually a good way of adding sunlight to the kitchen while increasing your privacy at the same time.

3. Extend the Height – Most specialty windows that are used as backsplash have an average height of 18 inches. In reality, however, you don’t have to let this measurement restrict you as you can have your residential window contractor extend the height of your specialty window. By doing so, you can increase the amount of natural light that enters your home.

4. Get Operable Windows – Most specialty windows that are used for backsplash purposes are fixed and therefore, cannot be opened. However, when you’re replacing your backsplash windows, you can also install operable windows for extra ventilation and improved aesthetic appeal for the kitchen.
