Solid wall or window opening?

We just bought an older home and we're completely remodeling the kitchen. The kitchen sink is facing North. Above the kitchen sink is this "window." The opening is 3' x 3'. (What use to be the window looking into the back yard) Off the kitchen is the new family room addition. I am not sure what to do with with opening. If we closed it off, you'd be standing at the kitchen sink facing a wall. Moving the sink would involve too much. Any ideas? Would appreciate as many suggestions as possible. Thanks!

Hi Laurie,Is there room in the wall to exspane the opening?If you can make the opening bigger it will be like a gally kitchen.The opening doesnt have to be to big am thinking something like 6 or 8 feet long by 4 feet or so high.Then you can put in a countertop in the opening and some high back stools on the family room side,and the other members of the family can sit there and talk to you while you do the dishs(LOL).

Good Luck

How about framing out the opeining in a 1 by. adding a 2 1/2 casing on each side and putting in a set of mini louvered byfold doors. This would give you a less enclosed type feeling at the sink even with the doors shut and you could open them up to pass through the popcorn and pass back the dishes.........
