Your kitchen can be so much more than just a place to eat and prepare food. It has a whole other life that you can unlock for it by just installing more windows than what you may already have.
Out With the Walls, in With the Windows
Too many walls in your kitchen can make the room dark and boring. It makes you want to spend only the time that you need to in that room and then make a quick escape to another more comfortable room. The thing is though, that the rooms you escape to are usually the ones with many windows or they have some form of entertainment in them.
By removing any walls that you can in your kitchen and replacing them with windows, you will let in more light and add an element of entertainment with the outside view. Then you will have changed your dark and boring kitchen into one of the other rooms that you feel more comfortable in.
Changing Styles with Replacement Windows
If you have plenty of windows in your kitchen, there is still always room for improvement. A plain window over the kitchen sink can be replaced with a bay/bow window to give you a place to grow plants. It can also be used as a greenhouse in the winter months to start seedlings or to bring in some of your smaller outdoor plants to protect them from the cold.
Creating a Breakfast Nook with New Windows
A beautiful breakfast nook can be created in almost any kitchen by installing the right amount of windows. A nook is basically just a section of the room that is sectioned away from the main part by either making that small sectioned recessed from the rest of the room or creating noticeable barrier.
The most noticeable and brightest breakfast nook is where the part of the kitchen where the nook will be is pushed out from the kitchen and the walls are completely made of glass windows. It is something like an enclosed porch, and can even have a patio door leading to the outside, but the nook is much smaller and is usually just big enough for a table to eat at.
Also, even though a breakfast nook is part of a kitchen, it can be listed as a separate entity when listing a house for sale.
