With the help of modern materials, the window sill becomes a useful window detail and a worthy decorative element of the interior. several tasks:

How to choose the right window sills and what to consider


When choosing the material and size of the window sill in an apartment, you need to count on long-term operation. It must meet such requirements as resistance to sunlight and mechanical damage, not react to the influence of detergents, moisture and temperatures.

In order not to disrupt the proper movement of air in the room, it is not recommended to mount a wide window sill. Otherwise, you can isolate the window and slopes from heat. This will cause condensation to form on adjacent walls.

Sill materials

Various materials are used for manufacturing. The purpose of the room, the overall interior style and the amount you are willing to spend will help you decide. The most popular are:

  • Plastic

Now PVC window sills are often installed in different shades, imitating wood or stone. Such products are affordable, lightweight, durable, resistant to moisture and sun. The disadvantages include low resistance to mechanical stress. If you put a hot glass of tea on it, the surface may be deformed. Dirt and dust seem to be absorbed into it, you can clean the plastic window sill only with detergents and cleaners.

  • MDF and laminated chipboard

Many people are well aware of the characteristics of MDF material. At a cost, the window sill will come out more expensive than PVC. Laminated boards are more suitable for this purpose because they have higher moisture resistant properties. But if the edge of the material is damaged during installation, then this place must be treated with a water-repellent composition or a special tape should be laid. It is worth noting that it is also impossible to put it hot, if the surface is damaged, the entire structure may be deformed due to the influence of moisture.

  • Wood

Wooden window sills have many advantages: environmental friendliness, heat resistance. Such a product will be quite expensive, especially if it is oak or ash, which even without tinting look amazing. 

Disadvantages: mandatory processing and coating with colorless wax, varnish or paint . The outer layer will have to be updated periodically.

  • Natural and artificial stone

 A window sill made of stone will last for many years in its original form. It will delight the owners with an aesthetic appearance with an individual pattern and shade. Natural stone is the most expensive option. But this is not the only drawback of the material. For example, marble absorbs liquids well. If a window sill is installed in the kitchen, then spilled juice or wine will leave stains. This stone cannot be washed with chemical and cleaning products. Granite is a durable material, and its processing is a laborious process. Therefore, window sills, as a rule, are produced only in the traditional form.

Today, artificial stone window sills are not inferior to natural options. Models made of imitated mineral have no size and configuration restrictions, and inimitable colors do not change due to prolonged use. 

The casting stone itself is impact and load resistant. You can not be afraid to put hot dishes. It does not absorb moisture, resistant to temperature extremes.

There are no pores in the material, and the antibacterial coating is no less important characteristic than its perfectly smooth surface. The material is not afraid of detergents, but more often it is enough to wipe it with a damp or dry cloth.

To keep the heat in the room and a comfortable environment, you can confidently buy an artificial stone window sill.

How to make and install with your own hands?

To create a do-it-yourself window sill from cast stone, prepare a mixture of dye and mineral filler. Polymers, acrylic or cement can be used as a bonding agent.

The mixture is poured into a mould. After solidification, a product is obtained similar in texture to natural stone.

But polyester material is difficult to process, so to create a figured window sill, it is better to turn to LumaStone professionals. Unlike most companies on the market, we have all the necessary equipment for any work with stone. We have a well-established production of artificial onyx in our production, so we will make an order of any complexity.

You can also install the window sill yourself. First prepare a flat base, preferably from concrete. The surface is secured by a 3 cm clearance under the frame. Make sure that there is a gap of 5 cm from the base. Because the possible minimum overhang of the window sill is at least 2 cm.

If you decide to buy an artificial stone window sill, then this is not a cheap purchase, but its characteristics are superior to almost all known materials.

Often, customers save on installation, which leads to many problems.A common situation is when a gap appears between the frame itself and the surface.If the window sill is made of PVC, then you can hide this gap, but another product may be deformed.As you know, the stone does not bend.In this case, the window frame itself is distorted.

Only professionals know how to properly prepare the base for stone window sill and how to avoid common mistakes during installation.
