A kitchen backsplash isn’t only a functional thing, it’s part of decor that will highlight designs and looks. There are many trends and you may see more and more unique ideas to use plaster, glass, metal for making backsplashes and much more. The idea we are discussing today became popular several years ago and is gaining more and more popularity – a window backsplash.
Pros And Cons
A window backsplash is really a unique idea: you may be sure that not many people have the same in their homes. Such a backsplash guarantees amazing views and plenty of natural light, which will make your kitchen more welcoming. Besides, such a backsplash easily fits many decor styles, from modern to industrial and you won’t have to puzzle over how to match the decor and the backsplash.
As for cons, glass isn’t the most durable material to make a backsplash plus it requires maintenance: you will have to clean it every day as splashes are clearly seen on the glass. A window backsplash means you won’t have much privacy, which can be essential, and it can fit not every style, for example, shabby chic or rustic won’t look that nice with a window backsplash. Here are some examples you may try.
A window backsplash is always a catchy option, if you have amazing views or if you have a private garden or courtyard. Grow much greenery to refresh the kitchen and make it look more vivacious, it’s especially cool for a contemporary or minimalist monochromatic space.

Large Windows As Backsplashes
A large window is another popular option, it can take the whole wall and just tie the kitchen to the outdoor space as much as possible. In such a case the views will be better than with a narrow window backsplash and you’ll get maximum light with a large window or a whole glazed wall. You may also try a folding window to serve food outdoors easily.
