39 Kitchen Windows Over Sink Design Ideas For Your Home

Kitchen Window Over Sink

A kitchen window not only brightens your home but also adds a beautiful design element. Natural light breathes brightness into any room and instantly compliments your design. Since most kitchens are filled with cabinets and appliances, adding a window over your kitchen sink is a great idea to bring in natural light.

From bay windows to tall black frameless windows, there are endless possibilities to create a unique style. While adding a window is typically done during the home-building process, it can also be done in existing houses if you have space behind your sink. Or, if a window exists today, you can update it with a more modern design to fit your style.

For inspiration, we’ve gathered the gallery below of windows over kitchen sink ideas to fit your home.
