Unlike your the other areas of your home, your kitchen probably has more needs. This hardworking space constantly requires abundant lighting, adequate ventilation and even a view for surveillance. Windows need to be installed that help your kitchen function efficiently night and day.
For Renewal by Andersen® of Columbus, these are the best kitchen window ideas:
A window backsplash can improve the look of your space. If you have a short, but wide wall opening, installing sliding replacement windows helps your kitchen to easily let in cool and clean air, and breathe out excessive moisture. For a kitchen without upper cabinets, you can extend the height of your glass backsplash to over 18 inches to frame a bigger view and collect more sunlight.
Of all operating units, casement windows are the best when it comes to directing and controlling natural ventilation. Of course, two casements are better than one. Facing more than one direction, they might be able to provide daylighting for longer hours.
Nothing can flood your kitchen with sunlight better than a wall of glass. Don’t install just one big picture window, though. Try putting several operating units together to enjoy even more ventilation. If you ever wished your space was bigger, this replacement window arrangement is perfect as it introduces a sense of openness to the room.
Transom-Crowned, Regular Windows
If your existing wall apertures stretch up to the ceiling, we recommend installing regular-sized casement or double-hung windows topped by transoms. The combination creates the same effect of tall, narrow glass units, except it offers better functional flexibility. If you want to elevate your level of privacy, you can cover the main windows and leave the transoms bare to enjoy more daylighting.
