The kitchen is one of the most utilized areas in your home. Choosing the right window for this space is crucial to ensuring comfort, functionality and appeal.
Here are three window styles that are typically recommended for kitchens.
1. Sliding Windows
Sliding windows are one of the most common choices for kitchens as they are reliable and appealing. They are easy to open and close, so even if your hands are wet, you can operate them with minimal effort. With the wide glass area on sliding windows, you can enjoy a clear, unobstructed view of your surroundings. They also require minimal upkeep. You only need to regularly clean the glass surfaces and tracks to keep the windows working properly.
2. Garden Windows
Garden windows offer a unique way to improve your kitchen design. They are surrounded by glass on every side and protrudes from your home’s exterior, similar to how a bay window juts out. What also makes this window special is that it provides the perfect place for indoor plants. Herbs, flowers and other small plants can take up space here to give your kitchen more character.
3. Sliding Patio Door
Although they aren’t windows, these doors are also considered an excellent “window” option for several reasons. If sliding windows aren’t enough for you or you want your indoor and outdoor spaces to be connected, then sliding patio doors would be a good alternative. Sliding patio doors are like larger versions of sliding windows that you can walk through. If you have enough space for a sliding patio door, your kitchen will look more appealing and functional. The patio door can serve as both an entryway and a window.
