How to Choose Windows for Your Kitchen
Whether you are completing a labor-intensive kitchen remodel or building a custom home from scratch, choosing windows for your kitchen can be a tricky process. How can you choose a kitchen window that you like to look at (and through!) every single day? Here are some tips for picking the perfect windows for your kitchen.
What Style Should I Choose?
There are only a couple common places for kitchen windows to be: above a counter, above a sink, or in a side area or breakfast bar area. When it comes to choosing windows for above the sink or counter, you should think about what those encounter on a daily basis and how you use them, like opening them to let in extra fresh air when your turkey gets a little too burnt. Awning windows are a popular kitchen window choice, as they can be pulled in or pushed out to let in fresh air. Sliding or casement kitchen windows crank out and can work well if they are in an awkward location.
Which Window Material Should I Choose?
Kitchens are full of heat and moisture on a regular basis, so it’s important to choose kitchen windows that are up to the task. Vinyl or fiberglass are very easy to clean to prevent staining or discoloration from kitchen conditions. Fiberglass windows are also very good at withstanding extreme heat and extreme cold, so heating up your kitchen in the dead of winter won’t lead to any damage or cracking. If you still would like to go with wood for your window frame material, ensure that the staining or finish will resist mold or rot as a result of the moist and warm kitchen conditions.

Kitchen windows, beyond being practical and a good fit for your personality, should mesh well with the style of your kitchen. With the professionals at Architectural Window Supply, we can explore all of the various colors, hardware, and grilles available to you to customize your kitchen windows.
