One reason to consider adding a casement window to your kitchen is that this option can really let the outdoors in! Window Replacements of Georgia offers many different manufacturers and we love the opportunity to find the best casement window for what you can afford in your kitchen. How does a casement window compare to a double hung in letting in air? When a casement is open, 100% of the window area is open instead of 50% as with double-hung windows. It’s a terrific window to use in the kitchen for those who want to be able to really open things up this time of year.
Lori from Cote de Texas’ remodeled her kitchen and included a casement window in her custom design. These windows swing out into the fresh air with a crank handle which allows easy access to opening a window over the sink.
Cote de Texas’ window doesn’t appear to have a screen, which makes it beautiful and so very open. But if you do determine that a screen is necessary, that adds another layer of consideration. Window screens are located on the interior of casement windows, so that can effect their use in the kitchen. Be sure the window is in a spot where you would be able to keep the screen clean and not in a spot where the screen would catch a lot of cooking particles. However, Pella offers a retractable screen that would make the best of both worlds when you have your windows open in the kitchen!
