Window sills have been around for thousands of years; in fact, they were part of window framing before Roman builders installed glass panes on temples. For many centuries, window sills were made of natural stone because this was the primary construction material. When brick making processes became more efficient, builders started installing sills made with the same wood materials as the window frame. As stone cutting and finishing techniques improved in the 20th century, stone sills became a new interior design trend that is still popular in 2020.
The Advantage of Stone Window Sills
Modern window frames are made of wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and laminate materials; they are rarely elaborate unless they are made by skilled woodworkers. Stone sills offer both form and function. They keep water out as they are supposed to, but they also look much better than the rest of the frame. With this in mind, here are six of the most popular window sills being installed today:
Carrara Marble Window Sills
You will never go wrong with Carrara marble in your house. As the most popular type of marble, Carrara is a stone that looks great when it is honed and polished. The unique veining patterns of Carrara marble only occur at rock quarries along the Mediterranean.
Crema Marfil Window Sills
If you are looking for a different look for your window sills, we suggest you evaluate Crema Marfil. The surface of this sill piece is a nice beige tone that resembles creamy butter with delicate veining.
Absolute Black Window Sills
When you are ready to inject a bold look into your home, think about shiny black granite pieces installed as window sills. We recommend our Absolute Black sills to homeowners who have installed dark granite on their kitchen and bathroom countertops. Granite has an additional advantage of being less porous than marble, which means that it will not stain as easily.
Euro Beige Window Sills
This is a special kind of limestone with a very interesting surface color. As its name suggests, this window sill piece is beige, but only slightly so; it almost looks white, but the rich natural pattern gives it a slightly darker tone.
Pure White Window Sills
Dazzling white window sills are perfect for reflecting sunlight, and you will not have to worry about staining because they are made of non-porous engineered stone.
Travertine Window Sills
If your interior design theme favors earthy colors, travertine is the perfect stone to install as a highlighted item.
