A window replacement installation doesn’t necessarily stop with the windows themselves; the ledges that give an additional edge of beauty, and sometimes function, could use an upgrade, too! Of course, we’re talking about the window sills.
Remodeled interior window sills can be just as valuable to your home as window pane improvements. Window sills add visual interest and, depending on their depth, may even serve as shelves to hold candles, figurines, pictures and other decor.
The aesthetics of interior window sills can be taken a step further with the materials of which they are made; there is a variety of compositions and colors that are available to match a home’s architecture, era, room size and type, and window style. These materials have transcended traditional wood window sills, allowing an expanse of creative possibilities.
Solid wood grain window sills are still in the running as a classic choice. A wash of varnish shows off the natural beauty of the wood, or a coat of colorful paint can easily make a space feel whimsical.
Natural stone window sills work well in high-humidity rooms such as a basement, bathroom, or kitchen. Granite and marble are two examples of natural stone that are both pretty and practical, while emanating luxury. Plus, stone sills are resistant to the sun’s rays and are easy to clean.
Particleboard windows sills are a modest choice if you like the look of solid wood, but not its price. Melamine is another material that mimics wood, but at an inexpensive cost.
Tile window sills are also a low-cost option. Made from ceramic or glass, these sills rival natural stone as far as easy maintenance and resistance to sunlight and moisture.
Vinyl window sills follow a contemporary trend. They are virtually maintenance-free and can sustain any type of damage. However, color-matching vinyl to your existing home decor may be difficult.
