An unconventional way to spice up your windows is to turn it into a mini greenhouse or a garden window. Bradford Exteriors, the leading siding replacement company, shares some window styles that can also make great garden windows.
Double-hung windows allow sunlight and fresh air into the interior, especially useful for plants, since they are easy to operate. The hardware could be a design advantage if you’re envisioning a vintage garden window look.
A picture window is a great choice because it requires minimal upkeep in maintaining its beauty and cleanliness. However, like double-hung windows, you’ll have to create a space for your plants during the window replacement installation. Since both double-hung and picture windows are mounted directly on the wall, you’re going to need it to extend out of your exterior wall to make room for your greenery.
The casement window is ideal to use as a garden window because it protects your plants even with the windows wide open. The operable panels act as a shield to the side from impact or wind. A variation of this is using the awning window, similar to how the casement windows operate except the hinges are on top.
This window style is the perfect match for building a garden window. It already has space, adequate light, and the gorgeous classically styled window appeal. You wouldn’t need to make as many adjustments as the first three window types to transform it into a whimsical garden window.To hire a company with exceptional services, Bradford Exteriors is the one you’re looking for.
