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.

"I've been impressed with each step so far. Josh my salesman, Gerry my project manager & the installation crew have all been great people to work with. Also, the many different office workers who have reached out to let me know how things were progressing are greatly appreciated. Thank you to all team members!"

"From initial review and purchase to installation, this team provided outstanding service. We were informed about the project status from start to finish. Everything was clear to us. We were very please the 6 windows were ready and installed earlier than originally planned. We'll work with them again on our next window replacement project."
