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.  Windows 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.Casement Window

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.

"Thank you Lindus Construction, our new 2020 bay window and Infinity from Marvin® windows throughout the rest of our home. They look superb. Thank you for your quality work!"

"Although Lindus was not the lowest bid, because of their excellent ratings on Angie's List we selected them to do the project. Removing 14 double hung wood windows and two large bay windows (including frames & interior trim), cutting back the exterior siding slightly, replacing with Infinity® from Marvin units and installing new interior trim was a four day project for the crew of three. It is doggone rare to find a company that takes this kind of pride in their work any more, but Lindus definitely does. Would we recommend them? We already have. With pleasure."

"We had our windows replaced by Lindus Construction and I would recommend them highly. The salesperson, Mitch, was very informative of the product and did not pressure us into a quick decision. The installation crew, Jake and Jim, were professional, friendly and respectful, having excellent carpentry skills. They did an excellent job with the installation of the windows, replacement of the finished trim, and clean up. Last but not least, extremely pleased with the quality of our windows. Would recommend SeasonGuard windows and Lindus Construction to everyone. Top Notch! Thank you!

"We had Lindus Construction replaced all of the windows on our house with SeasonGuard windows. Not only did they cut down on our heating and air conditioning bills, but we didn't hear much of the thunder and rain storms this summer. Also, the installers are wonderful to work with. I would recommend Lindus to anyone!"
