WHY IS THE KITCHEN IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR ROOMS IN THE HOME TO REMODEL
What are the best updates for homes? The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in the home to remodel, and for good reason. A kitchen overhaul is one of the secrets to selling your home.
When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, you must deliberate many aspects - cabinets, counters, floors and appliances - but you may not have contemplated windows. Replacement windows replacement - whether wood, vinyl or fiberglass - provide a good return on investment compared to other replacement projects. So, if you’re making minor updates or totally gutting your old kitchen, including window replacement in your project is a smart calculation.
Here are three key basics to keep in mind when choosing a window for your kitchen:
Kitchen windows are often located above sinks or counters, making them tough to reach and prone to moisture. Choosing a window type that is easy to open and close, such as a casement or awning, is a smart move. Never put a double hung near a sink!
With window placement above counters or sinks, condensation and staining can occur, so choosing an easy-to-clean material like vinyl or fiberglass, is similarly important. Fiberglass windows can withstand extreme heat and cold, are energy efficient and can have the same quality look of painted wood. Vinyl windows are easy to care for, don’t require painting or staining, but they are a short-term solution.
However, if wood makes more sense for you and the style of your home, then make sure to select a finish that will hold up against stains and moisture, and be prepared to do a little more cleaning and maintenance.
Features and options
If your new kitchen is traditional, modern or rustic, your replacement windows should complement the space. Window designs offer a variety of features including colors, hardware and grilles. With so many options to choose from it’s easy to design a window that’s distinctive to you and the style of your kitchen.
