A Window Over the Kitchen Sink

It's one of the truest, simplest forms of luxury in a home: the ability to gaze out of a window while doing the dishes. We always look for this sink-window duo when scouting out an apartment or house. And, while we don't always end up with it (in fact, there are lots of homes where the sink is not at a window), we certainly always dream of it:

The sink under the window was rounded up by Kristen before, but we can't help but revisit the subject as the weather's turned warm and our thoughts move toward the outdoors. These are a few more beckoning sink-window combos in kitchens from our archives:

FIRST ROW:
1 The scrollwork and casement windows here are our favorites from Michael & Danijela's Modern Minimal Milwaukee Home
2 A jalousie window in Tina's Port Douglas Cottage
3 A perfect place for plants in Pablo & Rob's Woodsy Wanderlust
4 The window is like a picture frame at James and Julie's Bernal Beauty.
5 This small sink is made bigger by its nearby window at Ingrid's Wood and Wool Wonderland

SECOND ROW:
6 The sink in The Dastrup's Brass Is Back Four Square isn't centered on a window, but is flanked by two!
7 Those tulips have to make any task a pleasure at kitchen sink of LaurieAnna's 30s Cottage Kitchen Makeover
8 True to its namesake, in Anne and Chris' Light-Filled Modern, plenty of light streams in through double windows.
9 Even without a window, there's a window in Jeff & Delia's Gourmet Garage.
10 The quintessential window over sink in Holly's Sophisticated Fifties Homage
