We will be sealing the interior wall to make room for overhead kitchen cupboards but don't want to do the standard thing of re-bricking the hole outside as our bricks will be hard to match perfectly.
I've tried to look online for ideas of what we can do with this outside wall cavity but haven't been able to find anything. So far we're thinking of maybe cementing a few glass bricks in there to fill the void but any and all ideas are very, very welcome.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Hello Watermellon_Jones, I work for the Home Depot in Chicagoland.
Have you thought about putting in a small picture window in there? You can special order a custom size, and order it with obscure glass. On the inside you can still put your cabinets in there, but leave the back & front of the cabinet open (glass door), maybe have some a decorative vase or something to showcase in your new kitchen in that location.
Let me know what you decide, and post some pictures of your final project.
