If you are considering a garden window for your kitchen, Master Seal can help. Bringing a bit of your garden indoors is a great feature to have all year long. Garden windows add value to your home as well. Add a little life to your kitchen or another room with thriving plant life and a great area to keep things growing. Garden windows are an excellent home improvement investment that will continue to look beautiful and retain their value for years to come. Since it’s a reasonably low-cost improvement, it’s one of the best investments you can make since the windows have many benefits, and you get a lot of bang for your buck.
What Are Garden Windows?
You might be wondering what a garden window actually is. They are basically a box of glass that sticks out from a houses’ window at a 90-degree angle. The box or platform created by the garden window can be used for plants that need to come indoors in the cold months or need better light or exposure to the sun. A garden window can also create extra space in the room it is installed. You typically find them in kitchens or bathrooms where a water source is, and additional moisture is also present for growing plants.
Garden windows are an excellent way to accommodate someone’s green thumb without cluttering up other living areas of the home. You can even build additional shelves above the platform in a garden window to accommodate more plants. You can also get them closer to the most sun exposure in the morning. They are available in different styles and sizes, creating a unique area in any room.
Benefits of Garden Windows
Here are some of the key benefits a new garden window can bring to your home.
Let There be Light
This is probably the number one reason people install garden windows. Garden windows have glass on four sides of the window box, so you get a lot more light into the area than a traditional window. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a disadvantage to more natural light in any room.
They Look Good
Not all windows are created equal. Most are purely functional and not always aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Garden windows are one of the exceptions. They add style to any space, and they are great to look at.
A garden window allows you to see outside and enjoy your outdoor garden or another area of your yard or property. Because you have a view out multiple sides and up towards the sky, you can see and enjoy more of the outside areas of your home more easily than a traditional window. If the window is situated in the kitchen sink area or bath area, it creates a visual feeling of more space in the room.
A Display Space
You’ll have a perfect dedicated area to arrange and display your potted plants. It’s a great way to bring color and life into your kitchen or another area of your home. If it’s situated close to your kitchen sink, it makes it even easier to water the plants. Furthermore, it doesn’t have to be all about plants. You can add knick-knacks, special accessories, or any collectibles you want to display prominently.
Satisfy a Green Thumb
For avid gardeners or cooks, having an herb garden at your disposal can be significant. Garden windows make this a super convenient option when your herbs can be potted and ready to cut from right in your window. Instant gratification when you want it.
