A Guide to Using Specialty Windows as a Backsplash

Using a window as a backsplash is a great way to increase the overall aesthetics of your kitchen. However, you can improve upon the idea by using a specialty window. Here are the benefits of using this type of window instead of a standard option.

A Guide To Using Specialty Windows As A Backsplash

Better Window Coverage

With standard windows, you’ll have to settle for however big a standard window option will be. This could limit the amount of light, ventilation and views you get with your window. With a specialty window, you get to decide how tall or wide your window can get. Want a wall-to-wall view or something reaching all the way to the ceiling? Only a specialty window can let you do that.

A Versatile Backsplash

In most cases, windows that serve as a backsplash tend to be fixed windows because the components could get corroded with constant exposure to liquids. With a specialty window you also have the option to have the latches placed higher so that they won’t get wet. This also means you can open your backsplash window just like regular casement windows to help air out the kitchen sink and reduce the risk of mold growth.

A Unique Shape

One of the best things about custom windows is that they are available in almost any shape. Whether you want a backsplash with rounded corners, an octagonal viewport or pretty much any polygon, your best bet will be getting a specialty window.

Energy Efficiency

Specialty windows can also come with the same features found in regular window options. This means your backsplash can have low-E glass and Fibrex® frames just like other energy-efficient windows in your home. This combination of form, versatility and function makes a specialty window perfect for a kitchen backsplash.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
