Most often, your kitchen is going to feature windows. However, there may be a number of different reasons that windows could be out of the question for your kitchen. Perhaps you’re locating it within an interior room or in the interior portion of an open-concept space? Perhaps you’re even building a second kitchen as part of a finished basement design?
