A garden window is a special type of window that juts out into a yard or other exterior area. It contains several shelves and is typically installed in kitchens over the sink or really, any room in the home. Besides versatility, garden windows have a number of advantages and benefits
Garden windows have greater exposure to the elements than other types of windows. When selecting garden windows, choose a material that doesn’t peel, chip, crack, or require painting. Choose insulated glass for comfort and energy efficiency.
The advantages of garden windows are:
Creates shelf space.
Garden windows are like mini-greenhouses. The shelves can be used to grow plants, flowers, or vegetables or they can be used to display vases or other home accessories.
Additional light and fresh air.
Although many garden windows are small, they allow extra light and air into the room. Garden windows typically open on the sides by turning a handle, allowing for ample air flow.
Depending on the specific type of garden window that homeowners select, temperature control is also a benefit of the windows. It is possible to select a window that has vents, which means that during the summer heat will exit through these vents. On the flip side, these same vents will help keep the warmth inside during the winter. In the end, this can help cut down on energy-related costs.
Easy to install.
Garden windows are available in easy-to-install kits that fit into an existing window space.
Adds beauty and value to the home. Garden windows are constructed for beauty. They have four glass panes—one on each side, one in the front, and a slanted pane on top. Depending on the size, the window may have one shelf or multiple shelves. Any addition to the home, such as this, adds value to the property.
