The Many Elements of a Great Window For Your Kitchen

09sep05e5a14Could your kitchen use a little help?  When it comes to evaluating a kitchen remodel, first consider what is getting the most use. If you’re thinking along the lines of one of your appliances such as the stove or the fridge, then you’re wrong. It may surprise you, but the kitchen window is the one element that gets the most use. Whenever you’re doing kitchen chores such as washing dishes, preparing your food, enjoying a snack, or anything else you might be doing while in the kitchen, chances are you’re also looking out the window. So that means the choice of a kitchen window is very important.  Keep all of these elements in your head when it comes to evaluating the right window to install in your kitchen.

Considerations for Kitchen Windows

Emission of Light:  The window should be positioned so enough light makes it through during the day. Lighting up food, working space, and decorations in your kitchen makes the entire area look more vibrant. The well placed window is able to bring in enough light to make it stand out.  Natural daylight really enhances a kitchen, plus you’re also able to get a nice view when doing things in the kitchen.

Gives a Unique Character: A great kitchen window has to make more of a statement then just being a piece of glass in the wall. Look for something that grabs the eye – something with unique panes or that has different panels. There are so many styles that you can choose from that go from modern to traditional. The one you choose should make your kitchen stand out from the rest of the home, since you probably spend a lot of time in your kitchen.

Choosing Coordinated Window Treatments:  Start with a great window but don’t stop there. The right window treatment items can draw your eyes to the window. Look for window treatments that really enhance the look of your kitchen window but that fit well with your overall kitchen decor.  And it’s essential that whatever you choose to accent your kitchen window with blocks as little light as possible.  (For some window treatment inspiration, we’ve got a Pinterest board you can check out.)
