Nothing pleases us more than bringing light and joy to families with a new set of kitchen windows. If you’re upgrading your home this summer, take a look at these window styles that will optimize your kitchen’s light and functionality.
What to Look For
Before you decide on the style, think about what else to look for in a kitchen window. Do you spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Do you cook a lot? Or maybe the kitchen doesn’t get a lot of action in the house if you and the family usually dine elsewhere in the house.
There are a few things to look for in a kitchen window:
The best style of window is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Even if you don’t cook at home every night, you’ll still want good air circulation and natural light to flow in through your kitchen.
Horizontal Slider Windows
For a window that’s both practical and beautiful, consider a horizontal slider. Our Toronto window installation experts can help you select the perfect sliding window that fits your kitchen horizontally. These windows provide ease of operation and comfortable ventilation. They can be paired with picture windows for added sunlight.
Other advantages of slider windows include:
- Durability — Most slider windows don’t rely on components that fail over time, such as springs or pulleys to operate.
- Low Maintenance — Fewer parts mean less maintenance. It also means these windows are cost-effective.
- Energy Efficiency — Casa Bella products are all energy-efficient, which means you’ll save money and experience the best quality heating and cooling all year long.
- Easy to Use — Sliding windows are convenient because there is less hassle with opening and closing.
A casement window is hinged on the side, similar to a door. It opens sideways with a hand crank located on the inside of a house. They come with optional screens, which are removable on the inside of the home.
They’re often used in pairs to convey a striking image, and they’re versatile and can be used in nearly any space. Since they crank open, they allow for maximum ventilation — a bonus in the kitchen — and can scoop out the air from a passing breeze.
Casa Bella casement windows offer elegance, energy-efficiency, ease of operation, and convenience. They also come with a multi-point locking system that provides a weather-tight seal and heightened security.
They look great over a countertop or a sink area. Just imagine: as you wash the dishes, you could be gazing out at the sunset or admiring a beautiful, sunny afternoon from your new casement window!
