There are many benefits to having large kitchen windows, including allowing lots of natural light and ventilation to the busiest area in your home. If you have a kitchen remodeling project coming up, here are some large kitchen replacement window design ideas you should consider.
Bay or Bow Windows
You can never have enough useful space in kitchens, and bay or bow windows are two of the best styles that incorporate utility, space and beauty. The bay space created by the protrusion is typically used for additional kitchen seating, but you can take this one step further and make it a banquette, maybe even replace the dining table if you need the extra space. The seat bottoms can also be used to extend your kitchen storage capacity.
Sliding windows are unique in that the weight of the window sashes evenly rest on the track rollers. This lets you choose window sizes wider than what hinged or double hung windows would allow, without sacrificing operability. Sliding windows are also ideal for small kitchens as their space-saving design lets you maximize usable space. Plus, it’s the best window style for walls alongside paths or other areas where out-swinging windows would be inoperable without becoming an obstruction. Renewal by Andersen® sliding windows feature Andersen®-designed track rollers that allow operation so smooth, your windows feel like they’re gliding on air.
If your window replacement project involves a large portion of your kitchen, you can’t go wrong with combined window styles, perhaps even a window wall. It allows the most natural light and more flexibility on which parts can be operable and which are fixed. Our specialty window shapes give you even more flexibility with shapes beyond typical four-sided window styles. One of our most popular window combinations is a Circle Top™ half-circle window added to French-style casement windows.
