Your kitchen is the heart of your home – it’s often where people congregate and where you spent a lot of time preparing meals for your family and guests. If the windows in your kitchen need an upgrade, garden windows are a simple way to change the look of the room and enrich it with your own flowers or herbs.
What is a Garden Window?
Garden windows are a variation of a bay window, which extends out from the walls of your house. Garden windows are at a 90-degree angle and bay windows are at a 45-degree angle. Garden windows are usually wider and deeper than traditional window designs, which allows for more light to enter the space. This is an ideal location for plants, herbs, or flowers – which is where the term garden window comes from.
Benefits of Having a Garden Window in Your Kitchen
Garden Windows Bring Additional Light Indoors
If your kitchen is dark or dreary, a garden window is a great option for opening the space and letting more natural light in. With four glass panes and a gorgeous, framed view, you’re sure to have a well-lit and open kitchen.
Garden Windows Give You a Panoramic View
Maybe you’ll have a better view of the park, or of your children running around in the yard. No matter what your kitchen window view is, with more light and better views, you might enjoy the space even more. And who knows, it might even make washing dishes or cooking more enjoyable for you, too.
Garden Windows Help You Grow Fresh Foods
You might not have room for a full garden in your backyard, but if you have a garden window, you can start your own mini greenhouse with potted herbs or vegetables that need just a small area to grow. These fresh foods will not only help keep your body healthier, but they’ll also enhance the inside of your home with herbal scents.
