Types of Kitchen Windows to Consider for Your Home


Kitchen windows play an important role in your home. They can provide much needed ventilation. They can also provide more natural light. Learn more about the types of kitchen windows available to decide what will fit best in your home.

Picking the Best Kitchen Windows

The best kitchen windows for your home depend on your home’s style. Extra considerations include available space, along with the features and options you want. Most often people think of kitchen windows as those that appear over a kitchen sink, but think about the other windows in your kitchen as opportunities to add light and ventilation.

Best Type of Window over Kitchen Sink

Casement and awning windows remain two of the most popular types of windows over a kitchen sink. Both types of windows use a crank handle to open and close the window. Having a handle that extends out makes opening and closing the window easier. Other windows like sliders and double hung windows require you to reach over the sink to open and close them.

Large Kitchen Windows

Large kitchen windows can help make a space feel bigger. Larger sized windows allow natural light to pour in. They also have contemporary style appeal.

Kitchen Window Ideas

If you’re remodeling your kitchen there are creative window options. Pass-through windows enhance indoor-outdoor living. Adding windows in underutilized spaces makes for bold looks. You can also choose different window and feature options. Window grilles and finish options are some of those choices.

Pass-Through Windows

Pass-through windows have gained popularity to connect your kitchen to an outdoor patio. A pass-through window can make bringing food from the kitchen to an outdoor dining area easier. You can also serve beverages outside without having to scramble to find a patio door handle. Slider windows work well for pass-through windows.

Window Space for Plants

A bay or bow window can add space for plants in your home. Bay and bow windows extend outward, creating shelf space that you can use for plants. Plants can get sunlight and plants can improve air quality.
