Window Styles That Are Just Right for the Kitchen

Garden WindowPicking the right kitchen windows can turn a utilitarian space into an inviting room that is bright, airy and the focal point of your daily life. Here are some window styles that work well in this part of the home.

Easy Breezes

Reaching across a kitchen counter to open and close a double-hung window can be awkward and even painful. Casement windows and sliding windows are well-suited for quick and easy one-handed operation. With the crank and lock both within arm’s reach, you will have quick access to fresh breezes.

A Room with a View

A great view is a wonderful way to start the day. Wake up to a wall of picture windows that creates a sense of openness and brings the outdoors into the room. For ventilation options, add awning windows underneath. A kitchen bay window flanked with operating casement or double-hung windows offers the same expansive view along with the benefits of ventilation.

Bring the Outdoors In

If you enjoy plants and gardening, a kitchen garden window can be used as a miniature indoor greenhouse. A garden window projects outward from the wall to create a sunlit spot that can be used to house herbs, orchids and houseplants, or serve as a display area for collectibles.

Personalize Your Windows

Add a unique touch to your kitchen with a window style that incorporates handcrafted decorative art glass, stylish grids between the glass, or simulated divided lites. For a more dramatic look, create your own kitchen window configuration using geometric shapes.
