How to make a window sill
After renovation work or if you’ve moved into a new house, you might like to replace one or more of the window sills. The existing window sills may be damaged, you might not like how they look, or perhaps they don’t match your new interior decor. Most houses have standard window sills, so it’s not so difficult to fit new ones. There are a number of ways you can do this, such as window sills that simply fit over the old ones, but you can also cover the old window sills with tiles or natural stone.
If you fit new window sills, you can make them to match in all your rooms. If you have a bay window, take a good look at what you can do there because in practice, a bay window isn’t used much. You can use it to make an extra seat with cushions.
You can get window sills in all shapes and sizes. Do you want to fit the window sill exactly in front of the window, or would you prefer it to extend out further from the wall? Window sills are available in different materials, such as wood, stone or marble.
