Kitchen Window Replacement Style Guide

Often referred to as the “heart of the home”, your kitchen provides a place for family and friends to gather and enjoy meals and fellowship.  There is no doubt that the kitchen is one of the most frequented rooms in the home.  What windows you have installed play an integral role in kitchen design because they allow for ventilation and expanded natural light.  Here’s our guide to the most coveted kitchen window styles.

Awning Kitchen Windows

An awning window has hinges at the top and they open upwards and outwards.  They are excellent for ventilation because they can be opened, regardless if it is raining.  This is because the underside of the pane is configured away from the home.  Awning windows also win high marks for the unobstructed view they provide.

Bay Kitchen Windows

Bay windows are a series of three windows that are connected to create a larger window.  As a rule, the larger window in the middle does not open and close, but the smaller ones do.  Bay windows are an optimum choice for a kitchen because the amount of natural light they amplify can create the illusion of a larger space.  Homeowners that have bay kitchen windows installed also appreciate that they offer a spot for items such as houseplants, cookbooks, and tchotchkes to be placed.  In addition, bay windows can be configured to include a window seat.

Bow Kitchen Windows

While similar in design to bay windows, bow windows set themselves apart by having a curved, rather than boxy presentation.  Bow windows also set themselves apart by having panes that extend outward, creating a more circular impression.  Popular spots to install bow windows in the kitchen include in front of the kitchen sink or near a breakfast nook.

Casement Kitchen Windows

This window style has hinges on one side and is opened with the use of a crank.  Many times, they are installed in pairs over the kitchen sink, allowing for optimum ventilation and natural light exposure.  They are preferable to double-hung kitchen windows in configurations where the user must reach-out over a sink or cabinet in order to operate.

Garden Kitchen Windows

A garden window can be recognized by its outward projection with panes on the left, right, center, and top.  The installation of a garden window allows for a moderate amount of natural light to enter a kitchen.  The ideal spot for garden window installation is above the kitchen sink, as this will allow for optimum ventilation.  Constructed with a built-in shelf, garden windows are an excellent spot for houseplants and potted herbs to rest.

"We are extremely pleased with the work on the windows and the installers. The crew was very professional."

Have had Lindus Construction out to my house to replace some old windows with SeasonGuard windows, and twice to install insulation in my attic. All three times the Lindus Construction team has been professional, courteous, and their attention to detail is outstanding. Just hired LIndus Construction to install new gutters on the house and I have no doubt that this experience will be as good as my previous experiences. Kudos to the Lindus Construction team!!"

"We had several large windows replaced. Everyone from the phone representative to the salesperson to the scheduler to the installers was knowledgeable, polite, easy to work with and professional. The installation went smoothly due to the skill and hard work of the installers and the windows look great. It seems like everyone was proud of their role in the Lindus team."

"We had Matt Puhl come out and talk to us about some windows. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  Jake and Jim were the guys that came out and installed all of our windows and did a marvelous job. They were clean, courteous and took a lot of pride in their final product and it showed, so much in fact that I bought the guys lunch! I knew that Lindus was top quality products, what I didn't know was that it was such great service."
