Selection of the right window profile is crucial during construction or renovation of the house. Nevertheless, it is also worthwhile to have some more time to look at the window sills. Window sill has both a decorative and functional function (flowers and decorations are kept on it, and sometimes it serves as a seat). It is very important to choose the right materials and the right shape so that the sill will fulfil its purpose well, match the window, and fit into the layout.
Window sills are installed at an early stage of house arrangement, so we have to decide on their appearance quite quickly. When we consider using a window sill in an unusual way - for example as a window desk or an additional shelf in the kitchen or children's room - we should plan it at the house design stage. This is due to the fact that this type of window sills are usually installed slightly lower, and the windows next to them are usually larger than standard ones.
When choosing a window sill you should pay special attention to the material it is made of. There are many possibilities today, such as PVC, natural wood, stone or wood-based panels. As part of the decision-making, one should take into account the fact that window sills made of individual materials differ not only in aesthetics or price, but also in durability, resistance to moisture, scratches and loss of colour, and easy care.
