Given how the kitchen serves as your home’s hub of activity, you’ll want to make sure it’s as lovely and comfortable as the rest of your home. Why not try sprucing up the room this season? Instead of replacing its color scheme or countertops, you should consider adding more windows to the space. But this will involve more than just picking windows, having them installed and calling it a day. Let A Cut Above Exteriors, the area’s leading source of quality windows and cedar siding, help you out. Here are some key design considerations when choosing kitchen windows for your home.
With you and your family spending a large portion of your time in the kitchen, it makes perfect sense to keep the space bright and cheerful. Getting windows that improve your access to natural light can help with this. A naturally lit kitchen not only looks cleaner and more spacious, it can also reduce your reliance to artificial lighting during the daytime. The perfect window styles for this are picture and gliding, which come with slim frames and a large glass area that allows plenty of light to stream into space, while maximizing your home’s viewing area.
A number of household tasks that involve water occurs in the kitchen, leading to high levels of humidity in your home. To expel warmth and moisture from this space, you’ll want to choose operable replacement windows that can increase your access to natural ventilation. They’ll keep the kitchen cool and fresh, improving indoor air quality while ridding the space of leftover food odors and cleaning smells. A Cut Above Exteriors not only offers excellent siding options–we also carry high-quality Renewal by Andersen® windows in a wide range of styles. These include casement and double-hung windows, which are champions at providing superior natural ventilation.
If you want to get the most of your kitchen’s available space, why not add a bay or bow window? Their unique shape and deep sill area makes them an instant focal point in the room. What’s more, you can use this same deep sill in a variety of ways. It can, in fact, serve as a cozy breakfast nook, a small storage area, or a nice surface for displaying decorative items.
