Kitchen Windows & How to Choose Them
If you’re designing a new home or renovating your existing one, do you know how you’ll incorporate windows into your kitchen?
You may not realise it, but kitchen windows can do so much more than simply provide you with light and ventilation.
Which is why we’ve put this post together – to illustrate the many faces of modern kitchen windows.
Fixed and Operable Splashbacks
Traditional glass splashbacks are backed onto a solid wall, but did you know that you can also have splashbacks that double as a window?
Splashback windows can be placed behind your benchtop and come in two forms: fixed or operable. Both showcase your view, and invite natural light into your kitchen. In addition to this, operable splashback windows provide for extra ventilation and air flow.
Perfect for kitchens that would be quite dim without the added light, splashback windows are a practical, stylish, and modern kitchen feature that you’re sure to love.
There’s nothing more quintessentially Australian than indoor-outdoor entertaining – and the right window choices can enhance your home’s indoor-outdoor experience.
One style of kitchen window many of our customers love is the servery window. These windows are installed to run along your kitchen bench. When open, they create a seamless connection between your kitchen and outdoor entertaining area.
Bi-fold, stacking, and sliding windows can all be used as servery windows. Your choice of window will depend on the space and size you’re working with, and your location. Speak to your architect or building designer for personalised advice on the ideal servery window for your home.
Rangehoods and kitchen exhaust fans are all well and good, but sometimes you don’t just want to let the steam out – you want to let the fresh air in as well.
Louvre windows are a particularly popular choice of kitchen window because they provide more consistent natural ventilation than most other window style. They’re also easy to operate even when they’re installed high up and out of reach.
Whether you want to save on your power bill or enjoy the benefits of natural ventilation, louvre windows are a great choice for incorporating into your kitchen..
Of course, while splashbacks, servery windows, and louvres all provide a range of awesome benefits, you’ll most likely want some traditional, functional windows in your kitchen too.
Choosing the right functional windows for your kitchen will depend on your design preferences, the space you have to play with, and the area you live in.
Awning windows, sliding windows, and double-hung windows are all kitchen favourites, but depending on your situation, you may choose to incorporate fixed, casement, or bi-fold windows in your kitchen too. It’s up to you!
As you can see, kitchen windows come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and fulfill a range of different functions. Did you discover a use for kitchen windows that you didn’t know about before?
