window placement ?


see pic.

to center the new window in the outside wall, blue. it would kind of a small window, from the inside.
if i went with a larger window, add the red to the blue. the larger window would be nice, from the inside. but would it look bad from the outside ?

i cannot go to the right, green. as that is where the cabinets will be.
and if i get the corner cabinet that i am thinking i want = i will not even be able to that far over = move the vertical green line about 6" to the left .

I see what you mean; inside visually is much more pleasing to the eye. As for out side, it would look off. You can move the other window closer so it would look more evenly spaced. Can that be done?

sure, bout anything can be done. but i think i am just going to go with the larger window, blue and red, and be done with it. while it will not look "right", it will be ok. and i do not live in the driveway, but i do in the kitchen.

My humble opinion! Most spend far more time inside, so I would opt for the inside being esthetically pleasing or useful. Restore the outside and in a year or so ask a neighbor or friend if they see anything amiss. I doubt any will notice. I tend to overthink or be too picky.
