8 Ways to Use a Kitchen Windowsill

We envy people with a kitchen window above their sink. It makes doing dishes a lot more enjoyable, and it also provides a natural surface for storage if you want to clear some counter space…

  1. Use your kitchen windowsill to grow an herb garden.
  2. Clear counter space by using a deep kitchen windowsill for a dish drainer.
  3. Deep windowsills also work well for storing plates in a rack.
  4. Store your dishwashing and cleaning supplies on the sill.
  5. Keep empty vases or mason jars on hand. They'll look beautiful in the light.
  6. Use your windowsill as a shelf for cookbooks.
  7. Above the sill, add glass shelves to create storage space without blocking light.
  8. Put a clothesline across the window and use it to dry dish towels. You can keep extra folded towels on top of the sill.
