Garden windows are great additions to any home. Usually placed above the sink in the kitchen, garden windows allow you to grow your favorite plants and herbs all year round. In addition to improving your home’s appearance, a well-built garden window can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers. Here are some tips for getting the most use out of your garden window:
- Hire a Contractor Although it may be tempting to try and install a garden window on your own, doing so is a risky endeavor. Garden windows are fairly complicated to install properly; even a small mistake can make the frame too snug or too loose, cause the window to open and close improperly, and may put undue stress on the glass panes. Contractors are experienced in installing garden windows and are aware of the many variables involved in the installation process. A proper installation can help your plants thrive and ensure that you don’t have to pay more down the road for repairs and modifications.
- Use High-Quality Materials Like any other renovation project, the key to success is using the correct materials. At Wallside Windows, our garden windows are made from the highest-quality materials to ensure that you get the most out of your garden window. For example, we use high-quality plywood and durable Pionite to ensure that your window lasts. Furthermore, we install casement windows on either side to ensure proper ventilation.
- Take Advantage of Special Features The best element of a garden window is that it offers a glimpse of the outdoors while you’re working away in the kitchen. To boost its appeal even more, add cheery window coverings or flowers to the sill. Furthermore, because a window allows you to take advantage of sunlight and grow your favorite herbs all year round, you don’t have to worry about inclement weather ruining your garden.
Garden windows offer a great way to improve your quality of life and the appearance of your kitchen. To learn more about how to make the most of your new windows, call Wallside Windows at (313) 908-5243.
