Key Design Considerations When Choosing a Kitchen Window

The kitchen is one of the most vital hubs of your household’s daily activities. That’s why you shouldn’t take your kitchen windows for granted. Don’t stick with just any traditional window style. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, your top home remodeling company, presents some key design considerations to follow when choosing a kitchen window.

Key Design Considerations When Choosing a Kitchen Window

Incorporate Your Kitchen Color Scheme

Does your kitchen have simple and neutral colors, or something that draws the eye? Add treatments that immediately command attention. Shades or valances add color and character without distracting from the view. A well-thought-out kitchen color scheme can brighten up even the dreariest of mornings.

Use Your Window Sill

It’s a good idea to maximize every aspect of the kitchen. This includes the window sill. Increase the size of the windowsill for an ideal space to place small potted plants. It will also allow you to add other decorations. Consult Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis for the perfect kitchen windows.

Maintain a Safe Distance Between the Window and the Cooker

The May 2011 issue of Kitchen & Bath Design News recommends a range to be at least 12 inches away from a window. A fire on the stove can jump to curtains on the windows. A breeze from an open window can blow out the flame on a gas burner. This allows gas to build up unnoticed leading to a potential explosion.

Always Be Mindful of Ventilation

Windows, doors or other devices that open and close should provide natural ventilation. These should be at least 5% of the total floor area. Open windows to add fresh air to your kitchen. Keep interior doors open and a combination of windows and exterior doors to create a draft. This way, you ensure the air doesn’t only enter, but moves through pushing stagnant, polluted air out.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
