Which window types are ideal for kitchens? Well, an ideal kitchen window replacement should be easy-to-open, provide adequate ventilation and natural lighting, and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen.
Here are the window types that meet all or most of these criteria:
Sliding windows are usually installed above kitchen sinks and counters. This window type meets all of the aforementioned criteria. Sliding windows are easy to open—all it takes is a gentle push to slide them open. Thanks to their wide glass areas, sliding windows can let in a large amount of sunlight. Plus, their simple design allows them to complement a wide variety of designs.
Here’s a tip: If you want to maximize natural lighting in your home, install Fibrex® windows. Fibrex is a composite made from wood fibers and thermoplastic polymers and is exclusive to Renewal by Andersen. Thanks to the composite’s durability—Fibrex is 2x stronger than vinyl—Fibrex frames can hold wider glass panes, giving your windows a sleek look and maximizing natural lighting inside your home.
Double hung windows are also a good choice. Like sliding windows, they’re easy-to-open. Instead of sliding open, the sashes of double-hung windows open up. Double-hung windows also have grid patterns that can add a bit of flair to any kitchen.
Casement windows are hinged at the sides and use a crank mechanism. Thanks to their structural strength, casement windows come in larger sizes and, as such, can provide adequate ventilation in the kitchen. And since casement windows don’t have any rails or bars, they have a wider glass area that can maximize indoor natural lighting.
Renewal by Andersen’s Signature Service
The problem with the premanufactured windows bought from hardware stores is that there’s no guarantee they’re a great fit for your home. The only windows that are guaranteed to be a great fit for your home are the custom-made ones. That’s why, as part of our signature service, Renewal by Andersen customizes each window according to our customers’ needs and preferences.
