Healthy exposure to natural light has several benefits on your overall well being, such as encouraging vitamin D production, helping improve productivity and boosting your mood. Good lighting is also vital to the safety, appeal and functionality of all parts of your home, including the kitchen. The right window replacement option will illuminate your space and add to its appeal.
Consider these window styles for the heart of your home: the kitchen.
The most preferred window style for every room has got to be double-hung windows. Besides adding more light to your kitchen, they can help improve ventilation. All you need to do is open the top or bottom sash to bring more fresh air into your space. You can also completely control how much you want double-hung windows to open.
Casements are another popular window replacement option in homes. They have side hinges that you can open outward to the right or left. Like double-hung windows, they are also great for improving airflow. It’s what makes them ideal for rooms prone to increased moisture like kitchens and bathrooms. No other window style will give you an opening as expansive for ventilation as casements.
Ideal for above counters and kitchen sinks, sliding windows are great for small spaces as well. You can easily slide them open and close. They also help with the room’s ventilation and get rid of lingering odors.
Another great thing about these windows is that they are easy to maintain. It’s because they have fewer parts compared to other styles. Furthermore, their large glass area will allow more light to your kitchen, helping reduce your energy consumption.
