First you should ask yourself, what type of plants do I want to grow and what light & water requirements do they need? Based on the answers, you can choose which of your window sills suits their environment. For example, one of the ladies in our orchid society lives in a condo but loves orchids. So she has them in her bathroom windows where they can absorb the shower heat and humidity as well as her kitchen window sill.
Second ask yourself, how can I personalize this space? You can add small objects of whimsy, picture frames, heirloom pieces, colored glass, collectables, etc. For example, right now in my kitchen window I have a few small pieces of colored glass vases, a few seashells and my last surviving mini violet. The whole window sill was full of mini violets since that was the only place I could actually grow them. For me, I like to rotate new things in my window sills that way I never get bored with it.

I thought it would work better for me as a herb planter, lol.
It was so easy & looks so pretty that I'm going to use a
few more pieces of unique yet unused glassware of mine.
