Garden windows are windows that project from the wall, similar to bay windows, with a sloping glass top. It’s ideal for growing plants, as it allows maximum exposure to sunlight. Replacement window company Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares ideas on how to style garden windows.
Choose More Interesting Plants
Garden windows give you more flexibility in your plant choices. A common problem with most indoor plants is that you’re often limited to plant species that require minimal sunlight. Garden windows give you more flexibility on your choice of plants. Sunflowers and orchids are just two of the many interesting plants that you can display on a garden window.
Ornaments and Small Pieces
You can also use garden windows for displaying small knick-knacks, pewter figures, or even a fruit bowl. There really is no limit to what you can display on garden window as long as it fits and looks good. However, you should keep in mind that UV rays can fade paint, fabrics, and furniture. This means you shouldn’t put framed photos and valuable painted figurines in garden windows.
Window glass with low-emissivity coatings, like our own High Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, can reduce UV rays that passes through the glass. If you plan on having garden windows installed, choose a window company that offers custom replacement windows so you can choose the garden window dimensions that you want.
Every home cook wants fresh herbs within reach at any time. In addition to being very convenient, they taste better than those dried herbs sold in bottles. The problem is, herbs such as basil, parsley, and oregano need lots of direct sunlight. Growing them is not as easy inside most kitchens. A garden window is the perfect location for growing such herbs. And the best part is, you save a few dollars by having a cooking herb supply that replenishes itself.
