Whether you consider yourself to be a culinary expert or you only use your kitchen to microwave leftovers, a window replacement in your kitchen can make a huge difference in how it looks and feels. However, knowing which windows fit your kitchen can be challenge. To make your life easier—and to ensure you’re choosing the best windows for your kitchen—the window experts at Rutter Roofing have outlined everything you need to consider for your kitchen window replacement!

Ease of Operation Should Be a Key Factor
We’ve all been there: climbing on top of a chair, wishing for Go-Go Gadget arms, fiddling with the window crank, all to simply open the window to let fresh air in or cooking smells out.  Make your life easier by choosing windows that are specific to the space. For instance, casement windows, which crank open sideways, are perfect for those hard-to-reach areas. For tight areas, opt for windows that open horizontally—and leave the Go-Go Gadget arms to the professional.

Keep Your Home From Feeling Stuffy Via Ventilation
Nothing makes a person feel more uncomfortable in a home than feeling smothered by heat or moisture from cooking. Luckily, windows can make a big difference when it comes to keeping your kitchen properly ventilated. To promote proper heating and cooling ventilation, double-hung windows are the perfect choice; as the name suggests, the lower portion of these windows allow cool air to come in, while the upper portion allows warm air to be let out. To keep your kitchen comfortable and moisture-free, opt for sliding windows. If you’re lucky enough to have a large kitchen space, you may also want to consider installing a sliding glass door.

 Open Up Your Home By Bringing the Outdoors In
Whether you love being outside or not, letting the natural light of the sun into your kitchen will make it brighter and happier; and who doesn’t love that? To increase the natural light in your kitchen—and to help warm it naturally—bow and bay windows are the perfect option. If these windows don’t match your personal taste preferences, than picture windows—which increase your views of the beautiful outdoors—may be a better choice.
