At Window World of Boston, we sell and install many styles of windows, including double-hung, casement, awning, and bay and bow windows. However, a garden window may be the perfect choice for updating your home. It offers beauty, value, and a whole range of benefits.
What Is a Garden Window?
A garden window is different than most others in that it protrudes from a home’s exterior. It has similarities to a bay window but is typically more functional rather than decorative. The front, sides, and top feature glass, while internal shelves provide an added storage area in your home. Suited for any room, this type of window is most often found in the kitchen.
Benefits of Garden Window Installation
- Improves Efficiency
The window can be opened on two sides, allowing for cross ventilation. Combined with an increased surface area, a better view, and more sunlight, this improves energy efficiency in your home. Rely on cool outdoor breezes instead of your air conditioner, and warmth from the sun instead of your heater. Overall, you can reduce the demand on your heating and cooling system on any day.
- Adds Light
More light on a sunny day not only limits how much artificial lighting you need. It also improves the mood and feel of your interior space. This is a bonus for smaller, darker rooms and can help them seem larger and brighter. Having ample natural light can also leave you feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated when you walk into your kitchen or anywhere the window is installed.
There are many options for decorating the window. You can have your own indoor garden as plants, herbs, and flowers will grow if there’s sufficient light. Even in the wintertime, the warmth of the sun can support a mini-greenhouse. Put an assortment of greenery on the shelf or plant a garden full of lettuce, celery, cherry tomatoes, garlic, carrots, and other vegetables that will grow indoors.
- Highly Functional
In addition to the function of the window, you can make full use of the storage area with cookbooks, kitchenware, fish tanks, and various knickknacks. A garden window is a perfect area for holiday decorations. You can store and display anything that will fit in this convenient little space. Add to your home’s décor while taking advantage of the extra ventilation and sunlight.
- Durable and Customizable
A Window World Garden Window has an extremely durable mainframe and sash made of 100% virgin vinyl. The material won’t crack, warp, or peel. An insulated air space is created by this multi-chambered sash and mainframe, which provides thermal efficiency, while performance and longevity are maximized with the Warm-Edge Spacer System.
A wide range of interior and exterior colors are available to customize your garden window. You can match other materials or colors or create an attractive contrast. Consult with your local window installer to learn exactly what options are available to customize your installation.
