When planning a complete kitchen remodel, you must carefully consider incorporating matching styles and options, from flooring and countertops to cabinets and appliances. Even the windows in your kitchen space must be given attention seeing as they are part of the interior design.
Wood window installation specialist Homecraft® Inc. shares what factors you need to consider when choosing kitchen windows:
Function Over Form
Although the windows in your kitchen can serve as a focal point, you should also think about how they’ll be used in the space. They must have the right features that improve both convenience and comfort because they’ll be frequently used in a space that tends to be one of the busiest in your home. For instance, you’ll want to keep the windows open for proper ventilation whenever you’re cooking or baking. This also prevents smoke and odors from circulating throughout the rest of your home.
In addition to function and ease of use, your new kitchen windows should also be energy-efficient. Quality windows can help retain indoor temperatures for longer without relying as much on your AC and heating system. The right windows also help reduce your dependency on artificial lights by bringing more natural light into the space. This can also reduce your monthly energy consumption.
Popular Window Styles for Kitchens
Whether you’re interested in wood, aluminum or vinyl windows for your kitchen, you need to choose based on convenience and comfort. Casement windows are usually one of the most common styles used in kitchens simply because they’re easy to operate. Just turn a crank to open them and you can adjust the natural airflow in the room with minimal effort.
Double-hung windows are also popular in kitchens for the same exact reason. The only difference is that they slide up and down, giving you full control of the room’s ventilation. Sliding windows, meanwhile, have sashes that move to the left or right, making them a great choice because they also let you easily adjust how much fresh air you want in your new kitchen space. They’re designed with a sliding track and can be easily opened and closed with the push of a finger. They also require only minimal maintenance and are often placed above sinks and countertops.
