3 Key Design Considerations When Choosing Kitchen Windows

The choices you’ll make during a window replacement will depend on where you’re installing the windows. Your kitchen, for example, may have window design considerations that are slightly different than those in the bathroom. By understanding them better, you can easily choose the windows that work best for the space. 

3 Key Design Considerations When Choosing Kitchen Windows

1. Access to Natural Light

You and your family spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen so it makes perfect sense to pick a window style that can make it bright and cheerful. Sliding windows are a good choice for this. By letting in plenty of natural light, they can make your space look neater and larger. At the same time, they lower your reliance on artificial lighting during the daytime. Sliding windows can also maximize your viewing area with their slim frames and expansive glass. Plus, they allow for effortless operation – just push them to the side to close or open.

2. Improved Natural Ventilation

Most kitchen tasks involve the use of water, which contribute to high levels of humidity inside your home. To prevent warmth and moisture buildup in your kitchen, choose operable windows that can enhance your access to natural ventilation. Casement and double hung windows are champions of this. They’ll keep the kitchen cool and fresh, and improve indoor air quality by expelling moisture and lingering odors. 

3. Maximize Available Space

To get the most of your kitchen’s available space, you should consider adding bay or bow windows. Their unique shape makes them an instant focal point. The deep sill area of these windows also allows for a number of functions like serving as a cozy breakfast nook, a small storage area or a good surface for showing off decorative items.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
