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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
