The kitchen, now more than ever, is the new heart of the home. Families gather there to prepare and share meals, children doing homework while Mom and Dad get dinner together. On weekends, friends stop by to share morning coffee.
The windows in your kitchen can set the entire tone of the room. Selecting the right replacement windows for your kitchen means considering three criteria. Every family is different, and every family uses their kitchen differently, which means there’s a unique replacement window solution for each family.
Criteria #1: Functionality
You want your replacement windows in your kitchen to work! It’s essential that you have replacement windows that open and close easily. Too often, original construction windows are flimsy and don’t open easily –if at all! That’s not great news — what happens when you burn dinner and want to air the room out? What happens if your honey is happily frying fish and you can’t stand the smell? Vinyl replacement windows open easily, allowing you to let fresh air in when you want it!
Don’t forget, having functional windows — replacement windows that open and shut easily! — is a safety issue. More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room of the house. If you ever need to exit your kitchen quickly and the doorways are blocked, it’s essential that your replacement windows open!
Criteria #2: Energy Efficiency
Energy costs are spiralling ever higher, making it more expensive than ever to heat and warm your home. Leaky kitchen windows can let all that heat escape into the great outdoors, where it doesn’t do you any good. Select replacement windows for your kitchen with an eye to energy efficiency. Vinyl home replacement windows offer the most bang for the buck, with triple pane glass, insulating gas pockets, insulated frames, and low e-coatings.
Criteria #3: Style
When we look good, we feel good — and when our homes look good, we feel good too! Selecting replacement windows for your kitchen means selecting replacement windows that honor your personal style with the unique needs of the kitchen environment. Frame a great view with a picture style window, or go old-school with classic colonial or country lines. Vinyl replacement windows are available in a wide range of styles, with colors and finishes to enhance any decor.
