The kitchen is one of the rooms in a home we spend most of our time in, so it’s important to enjoy the space you eat and cook in. If you’ve been struggling to remodel your kitchen, a kitchen window replacement might be the key to your new kitchen’s design.
At Opal Enterprises, we’re passionate about finding the right windows that complement your existing aesthetic. We have a team of kitchen windows installation contractors ready to help your vision for your new kitchen happen.
Characteristics of Kitchen Windows You Should Consider Before an Installation
When deciding what windows to install in your kitchen, there are a few aspects you should consider. By thinking about these characteristics, you can get a better idea of what your want your new kitchen to look like:
The color of your kitchen’s windows is important to consider when you’re remodeling. If your home’s style is more classic, you might choose a cream color, or if you’re feeling daring, black to make your windows stand out from your walls.
Whatever your dream design is, with the help of our partnerships with the leading windows manufacturers, Kolbe Windows and Andersen Windows and Doors, we can help you achieve it. In addition, we have an extensive color library you can choose from.
You should also decide what window frame material you want for your kitchen windows. We offer wood and vinyl options. If you’re going for a classic look, either option will work; vinyl windows are low maintenance and easy to clean.
Wood windows are also a great option, but they require a bit of upkeep. Wood windows, unlike vinyl windows, absorb more water which could lead to mildew and, eventually, mold. Our experienced kitchen window installer can give tips on keeping your wooden frame windows in good condition.
If your home or apartment’s color scheme is colorful, you could choose a brightly colored wood frame to outline your windows. However, if you need help deciding what will best match your current home decor, we’re ready to help.
The final feature of kitchen windows you should plan out is how big you want your windows to be. The larger they are, the more spacious your kitchen will be, and you’ll have a great view outside. Conversely, smaller windows in your kitchen will put more emphasis on your kitchen’s design.
Whichever size you choose, we can make it happen. Our partners have years of experience creating custom windows for every type of home.
Types of Windows We Can Install in Your Kitchen
Our exterior remodeling company offers various windows you can choose from for your kitchen. You can choose the style that fits your home. We offer the following types of windows for kitchens:
A standard choice, sliding windows are easy to use, and you don’t have to worry about breaking any parts. If you’re looking for a way to add a simplistic touch to your kitchen that still matches your style, sliding windows are a great choice.
Sliding windows also allow you to easily open the window to let fresh air into your home. You can choose to have a screen with this type of window. We recommend doing so to keep any unwanted bugs out of your home.
Natural ventilation and a window you can fully open make casement windows stand out from other types of windows we offer. You’ll get better airflow because you can open the window to allow the air to travel into your home.
Casement windows have a lock you have to lift, and then you row the crank to open the window as far as you want. Unfortunately, you may have to replace the handle after a while, and it gets worn down, so you may have to do some maintenance.
We can install double-hung windows in your kitchen for a more classic style. This type of window has two separate windows open vertically by pushing and pulling them down. Even if you choose to have a screen with these windows, you’ll still have great airflow.
These windows also provide plenty of natural light in your kitchen. If you’re unsure about what type of window you’d like, our team can help you decide.
How a New Kitchen Window Installation Can Benefit Your Home
There are many reasons to schedule a new kitchen window installation; whatever that reason may be for you, you can experience the benefits of newly installed windows. The most common benefits are:
More Curb Appeal
Any upgrades you make will increase your home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal means that your house catches any potential buyers’ attention. Upgrading the windows in your kitchen will give your house a higher curb appeal.
Due to the durability of our window manufacturers’ products, you’ll have new and structurally sound windows in your home that won’t require replacements for a long time. The less work a potential buyer has to do on the house, the more appealing it will be, not to mention the higher value you can get for your home.
Lower HVAC Bills
When our team of kitchen window installation contractors replaces your old kitchen windows with new ones you choose, you may notice that your HVAC bills are lower than normal. This is because all the kitchen windows we install are energy efficient, so once heat enters your home, you don’t have to worry about cold air drafting in right after it.
Increased temperature regulation means you won’t have to worry about turning on your heat for a considerable time, especially when it’s sunny outside. You’ll save money and energy when you don’t have to turn on your heat or air conditioning.
More Natural Light
Upgrading your windows improves the look of your kitchen and increases the amount of sunlight. More sun shining through your windows while you’re cooking can alleviate the need to use electricity like overheard lights and it can also lift your mood.
