What Windows are Best for My Kitchen?
When we talk to homeowners about natural lighting, the room they often mention most is the kitchen. If you’re wondering why, it’s an easy answer. A majority of life revolves around the kitchen. From making the kids’ lunches in the morning to cooking fun dinners and even cleaning; it all takes place in the kitchen. Naturally, people want the place they spend most of their day in to be light and airy.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and consider new windows in your kitchen, there are a few things to be mindful of
. One is, how functional are your current windows? How much light do you want and the style of window you’d like? It’s important to keep things this in mind.
At Bell Brothers, we love a classic sliding window in the kitchen. They’re easy to open and close and they give you great control over air circulation. Want to open it all the way and let everything in? Sliding windows can do that. What if you just want to open it a crack to let some steam or smoke out? Sliding windows are great for that too. it’s the control you might be looking for.
We also like to recommend double hung and casement windows. Double hung is the traditional “lifted” design. Push the window to your desired openness and call it a day. Casement windows allow for a lot of light to come in and they’re easy to control. Turn the little crank and you can open it as far as you want.
