Why Have a Garden Window Installed?
A garden window (also called a greenhouse window) is a multi-pane window that extends out from a house to capture more sunlight. Similar to bay windows but smaller, garden windows are often picturesque, and they are typically used to grow plants, flowers and herbs indoors.
Whether you want an indoor kitchen garden or a nice place to put your plants, garden windows offer a number of benefits, including:
- They capture more sunlight than standard flat windows.
- They can increase property and resale values.
- They come in a variety of styles, including those with extra shelving, side vents for improved ventilation, specialty glass options, and more.
Gardening is not the only reason to have new garden windows installed either. Because garden windows bring in light and extend the viewing area, they make rooms feel larger, airier, and more open. If you have a smaller space with little room to grow, a well-planned garden window can help give you the feel of expansion without requiring any actual lot space.
Types of Garden Windows
Garden windows typically look like small, 90-degree bay windows that have sloped, glass roofs. They can be made from wood, vinyl or fiberglass, and they are typically either awning windows (that are hinged at top and bottom) or casement windows (that open with a cranking mechanism).
The nice thing about greenhouse windows is that they are often customizable and can include:
- Extra shelving that gives gardening homeowners more space for their plants and herbs.
- Front and side vent options to improve air circulation and ventilation.
- Specialty glass options, such as obscuring glass (for privacy protection), tinted glass (for heat control), tempered glass (for improved glass strength), laminated glass (for noise reduction), and argon gas panes (for improved thermal performance).
