Kitchen Window

Are all of the windows tinted for privacy? If you have the kitchen window, is the shade constantly getting splashed from the sink? (I am not a neat dish washer.) The window makes the 19 look nice from the outside, but is it worth the added expense?

I must admit, splashing the window shade while washing dishes has never crossed my mind. The window adds light to the counter area. Yes, light also comes from other sources but the kitchen window adds light directly to the counter area.

Opening or non-opening? Buyers are pretty split on that one, you decide. We didn't get it opening, bathroom, yes, for sure, kitchen, no.

Me too, and never had an issue either. I too like the light it added, and went without it operating, as there are lots of other windows that do.

We did the non-opening kitchen window and optional bath window. Love both of them.

Opening Windows

We went with both the kitchen and bathroom window that open. Love them both, but I like fresh air too.
I usually have the blinds up and haven't had the chance to splash on the kitchen window.
I also like the fact that it seems to aid the stove fan in getting smells out quicker, unless you are burning something. Then the outside vent along with the open window will just recirculate the smoke, not that that has ever happened to me!

The kitchen window is centered between the stove and sink so it should not get splashed.

We have both opening window in kitchen and bathroom......we love them to open for colder nights(in fall and early spring) .......they aid in ventilation for at night.

We have both opening windows bath and kitchen . Our kitchen window stays open pretty much all the time except if we were moving trailer , driving . Really helps with condensation also using your max fan on low too . Kitchen window is open right now even under it's cover . We pull shade up to no opening part of window so it doesn't get dirty .

If you fill the sink with water then open the door and leave, if robins should come in to take a bath in the sink, then I think chances of getting your shades wet are good. Otherwise, I say not to worry.

Ah too funny for words. Lot's of different ways to say the same thing.
