Installing a window over the kitchen sink is a design default for many homebuilders. Having a view of nature while you’re washing dishes is nice, but it’s not the only option for kitchen design. What if there aren’t beautiful views on the other side of the wall, or maybe you’d rather get more function from the space above your kitchen sink? If you’ve been looking at this area and wondering how to make it more useful or attractive, we’ve got some ideas to share!
You’ll be spending a little time each day standing in front of your kitchen sink, so select something lovely to dazzle your gaze. Choose a work of art you love—a painting of a relaxing scene or framed doodles from your children—to decorate this space. Antique farmhouse kitchen gadgets or a vase of fresh flowers will add great color and texture. These can be hung directly on the wall or placed along a shelf or two. Make sure the art you select is lovely but not precious since these items will be living above an active water source.
When the Neanderthals needed a water basin they probably used a big rock that had been eroded into a concave shape by centuries of rain. All the rage today is the apron-front, squarish farmhouse sink, which echoes the shape of stone sinks made in America for some 150 years. In this region you may have a prayer of finding a salvaged slate sink. But buyer beware, says Tatko. The sinks may harbor hidden cracks from years of exposure to the elements, and you'll have to custom build your cabinets to accommodate their odd sizes.
