The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in a house. In fact, the HealthyUNow Foundation reveals that a homeowner spends 30 minutes cooking each day, resulting in more than 180 hours spent in this area annually. More than a place to prepare meals, this room is also used as a living space where you and your loved ones eat, laugh, and simply bond with each other.
With a significant amount of time spent in the kitchen, Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln thinks it’s best to keep this area comfortable and functional as much as possible. Here are three great window styles to help you achieve this:
With how busy a kitchen can get, it’s great to have kitchen windows that are easy to operate, clean, and maintain. We recommend choosing a window style that’s simple and hassle-free. For these traits consider gliding window.
With their straightforward design, you would think that gliding windows were practically made for kitchens. Their sturdy track allows them to slide easily, allowing adequate air circulation in this room. Their sleek glass design, backed by our superior glass options, ensures optimum natural light entry and energy efficiency.
The double-hung is one of the most popular window styles because of its versatility, both aesthetically and functionally. With all the cooking being done in the kitchen, you may feel suffocated with the heat and mix of various smells. Double-hung windows allow warm air to go out through their upper sash while letting in cool, refreshing air from the bottom. This way, you’ll have adequate ventilation as you prepare you and your family’s favorite meals.
Casement windows are another option that’s a perfect match for your kitchen. They have expansive glass areas, allowing maximum daylighting. You may also open them outward for better airflow control in your space.
