The kitchen is the busiest area in your home. Therefore, it needs windows that are practical and easy to use, but without sacrificing aesthetics. Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco shares some of the window styles that are perfect for kitchens.
Double Hung Windows
If you’re after a traditional look, then you can’t go wrong with the classic double hung window. The familiar design has many practical features, such as effective ventilation. Renewal by Andersen improves on the traditional double hung window design by adding features, such as sashes with counterweights built into the frame. This makes the sashes easy to open and close, even when installed over countertops. The same sashes are easy to clean and maintain, thanks to the tilt-in design as well as the low-maintenance Fibrex® material frames.
Casement windows are another window style that’s great for kitchens. The hinged sashes open to allow for maximum ventilation, perfect for venting out steam and strong cooking smells. It makes the kitchen look bright and cheerful, thanks to the large glass areas that let more natural light into your home. Casement windows can be operated by hand by using the easy-to-use hand crank, letting you open and close them even when you’re so busy that you can only spare one hand. Like our double hung windows, our casement windows are designed for easy cleaning with hinges that allow access to the exterior side.
Gliding windows are ideal for small kitchens, where space is a premium. Since the weight of their sashes rest on the bottom frame, gliding windows are much easier to open and close. They are also perfect for kitchens that have footpaths right outside the windows as the sashes won’t get in the way. Our gliding windows, like all the other aforementioned window styles, are easy to clean and maintain. The removable sashes let you clean everything, including the bottom tracks.
