Garden windows are windows that stick out from the house at a 90-degree angle. The space forms a box or platform that can be used for plants needing better sunlight or sun exposure. A garden window is a great way to make extra space in your kitchen, sunroom, or living room. If someone in your family is a plant collector, a garden window is an excellent way to accommodate their hobby without cluttering your living space. A garden window brings life to any space in your home and provides the sunlight that plants need to grow. If you are interested in learning more about the type of garden windows that will be appropriate for your space, call Master Seal at 855.608.1580 to learn more.
Building shelves above the platform in a garden window can help your plants get the coveted morning sun they need to grow. Even difficult-to-grow plants thrive when they have access to the morning sun, especially from an east-facing window. Garden windows are commonly used in bathrooms or kitchen areas by the sink. They are available in different styles and sizes, creating a unique area in any room they are placed in.
Garden Window Features
Our garden windows are constructed of fusion-welded vinyl frames, and sashes and feature screened casement window vents that allow an abundance of light to shine through and nourish plants and flowers. The garden window’s standard birch veneer surround can be sealed, stained, or painted to match your interior décor. An optional oak veneer surround is also available for our 300 Series Garden Window.
Our garden windows come in vinyl, like our vinyl replacement windows. Vinyl is recommended because of its superior thermal performance. Most plants will be able to grow in these conditions, but these windows are better suited to small plants.
One of the nicest features of garden windows is that they let in a lot of light as they protrude outwards. That will be great for your plants but also make your room look bigger. The natural light that is let in is more comfortable to see by and offers many benefits over using artificial light. You will get a better view of your garden too. They can give you the chance to grow plants even if your garden is really too small for that, and garden windows allow you to create an eye-catching display which will be quite a talking point.
You can grow herbs for cooking and salad plants in your garden window and have them easily in hand in your kitchen when you want to cook with them.
Growing Succulents in a Garden Window
Keep your plants, cuttings, and seedlings happy by letting in natural sunlight with a garden window. Garden windows offer many cosmetic benefits for you and your house. They let the outside in and allow you to get the health benefits of extra light, and maybe even benefit from growing healthy herbs and plants in the window!
