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.

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
