Best Windows For the Kitchen

The kitchen is perhaps one of the most popular stopping points in any home. Because you typically spend a good amount of time cooking and eating in the kitchen, as a homeowner, you should ensure your kitchen is equipped with the best windows possible.

Your kitchen is a unique spot in your home, so the windows should also be unique to what fits the space best. If you’re wondering which window types are best suited for kitchens, look no further. Listed below are several window types best for kitchens.

●        Sliding Windows

When three burners on the stove are running and the timer on the oven is going off, it can be difficult to take a moment to crank open a window and let some fresh air into the hectic space. Sliding windows are considered one of the best window types for kitchens because of their extremely simple operation. If you’re in need of some airflow in a hot kitchen, sliding windows can provide you with just that. Their simple design also allows you to open the window as wide as you want so you can choose exactly how much air ventilation enters the kitchen.

●        Garden Windows

Do you have a knack for growing plants and collecting display objects? Garden windows are an excellent option for adding a touch of personality and elegance to your kitchen. Not only does the outward design allow you more surface area to grow beautiful plants, but it also creates a brighter and more open space in your kitchen. Their design also allows plenty of natural light into your kitchen — which is perfect for reading recipes and maintaining focus while cooking.

●        Double Hung Windows

Double-hung windows are potentially the most popular window types in homes. Because of their timeless appearance and extremely simple operation, it’s no wonder why they rank highly among homeowners’ windows of choice. Double-hung windows make an excellent addition to kitchens because they provide optimal airflow throughout the space and let in plenty of natural light. Additionally, double-hung windows can open from both the top and the bottom. They also have secure latches on each side to maximize safety around children.

●        Casement Windows

Due to their ability to allow optimal airflow, casement windows make another ideal window style option for your kitchen. Casement windows open outward by turning a crank, so you can also create an open environment in your home when they’re open. Additionally, the casement windows’ design allows a lot of natural light into your kitchen.

●        Sliding Patio Door

Sliding patio doors are essentially sliding windows, only bigger. If you have yard space beyond your kitchen, consider installing a sliding patio door. Similar to sliding windows, these doors are extremely easy to operate. Their size also allows even more fresh air and natural light into the space. Additionally, if you do have yard space by your kitchen, you can have easier access to the outdoors.

Common Values in a Kitchen

Your decision on your kitchen’s windows largely depends on what you want to achieve with your selection. There are a number of common values homeowners have when it comes to deciding on windows. Understanding what you value can help you decide which windows to install in your kitchen.

●        Optimal Natural Light

Having plenty of light in your kitchen is important when you’re attempting to chop vegetables and read important instructions. There are a few window types that provide excellent natural lighting. If you value having a lot of natural light in your home, you should focus on window types that provide that requirement.

●        Aesthetic Appeal

If you value having a beautiful kitchen that can “wow” visitors, consider installing windows that provide an elegant and timeless look to the space. Ensuring the windows you choose match and look cohesive together can also help you achieve aesthetic value to your home.

●        Airflow

When several pots and pans are heating up, a smoky kitchen can become an issue. If you require windows that provide your kitchen with optimal air circulation, there are several options to choose from.

●        Simple Operation

Between following intricate recipes and ensuring no ingredients are burning, you may require a window with a quick and easy operation. Windows that are easy to open can help you get airflow throughout the kitchen quickly and efficiently while you have several other responsibilities needing your attention. Additionally, sometimes it can be difficult to reach windows above sinks and countertops, so having a simple operation can make life in the kitchen a little more simple.
