Kitchens are the busiest and most functional areas in every home, but it doesn’t mean you can’t make it stylish. One of the most effective ways to add style to your kitchen is by installing large replacement windows. In addition to letting more natural light in, large windows also extend your kitchen’s functionality.
Here are some of our recommended styles for large kitchen installation windows.
1. Bay or bow windows – These windows are perhaps the most obvious choice for homeowners who want to expand usable space without taking up additional floor space. While typically chosen for bedrooms and living rooms, oversized bay and bows are a great addition to any kitchen. Bay and bow windows are can be shaped into anything, from a simple, couch-like box bay window for additional seating and hidden storage to a booth-style banquette, complete with matching dinner table. Apart from kitchen seating, bay windows can also be used as garden windows, perfect for growing basil, parsley, and other cooking herbs that need a lot of sunlight.
2. Floor-to-ceiling windows – While not style-specific, floor-to-ceiling windows look best with a combination of picture windows and casements or other operable windows for ventilation. A floor-to-ceiling window replacement using picture windows work best in combined kitchen, dining, and living spaces, especially with an adjoining sliding patio door.
3. Sliding windows – Sliding windows are one of the few operable window styles that can accommodate the weight of oversized windows, thanks to its bottom frame design. Like our patio doors, our sliding windows feature smooth rollers that provide a reliably effortless gliding sensation. Sliding windows are also perfect for areas where projecting windows can be an obstruction.
4. Specialty windows – If you’re not ready to replace your existing windows, consider adding specialty windows that work as window extensions. You can choose virtually any shape that will complement your existing windows. Our specialty windows are essentially picture windows, so they don’t sacrifice energy efficiency once installed in your kitchen.
