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.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"My new windows look great!! I can feel the difference in my house and my furnace is no longer staying on constantly. My installation crew was polite, tidy and speedy. It couldn't have went better"

"The workmen were very professional and did a great job. Cleaned up everything. I am very pleased with the new windows. Beautiful!"

B. Young | RBA OF ST. LOUIS, MO - MARYLAND HEIGHTS

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
