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.

"When we purchased the windows at the end of February we had been informed the lead time would be middle of August for installation. I was okay with this as they had been straight forward about the time frame. As the process moved forward I was kept informed via email at the various stages. I had received an email at the email of May stating the windows have finished being built and we can schedule installation. I was thrilled to have them be installed by the end of June. The installers showed up on time had been very courteous while performing the installation. They had scheduled 4 days for the installation and had completed it within 3 days. There was an issue with our front door as it was on back order and they brought out the wrong door by mistake, however they installed a temporary door until our door arrived and then came back out and installed the new door. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing replacement doors and or windows."

"A phenomenal removal and replacement of our front door. The installers were very detail oriented and very meticulous. This was the second time we've had doors replace with Renewal by Andersen of SW Missouri and both time our expectations were exceeded."
