The most impactful part of your kitchen remodel can come from an unlikely source. While much of the focus falls on which appliances to use, what countertop material you desire, or even the color of your cabinet’s paint or stain—it’s the windows in your kitchen that can elevate your remodel.
Windows play the essential role of allowing the outside world into your home through both natural light and an appealing view. Following modern kitchen remodel trends that implement larger kitchen windows will not only bring more light into your kitchen space but will also make it a more beautiful and appealing remodel with Lakeside Renovation & Design.
Large Kitchen Window Remodel Ideas
During your kitchen remodel, don’t think small. And we mean that literally, especially when it comes to your window selection. Make light a priority in your kitchen by opting for larger windows. But take into consideration how your windows will flow in the overall scheme of your kitchen remodel.
Updating your window styles with large kitchen windows will make a striking impact in your kitchen. Here are some creative ideas to update the look of your kitchen through large replacement windows in 2021.
A Window Focal Point
A beautiful kitchen window can become a gorgeous focal point for your space. When strategically placed, such as over the sink or centered along a wall, your eye will easily be drawn to the beautiful outdoors and the natural light. The larger the window, the more impactful your focal point will be.
Framing a Focal Point
Opposite of the above point, rather than focusing on your window, you can use windows to focus your attention on other statement pieces in your kitchen. Frame out a beautiful vent hood by placing matching windows on both sides of the piece. Opt for tall rectangular windows to maximize light and create a striking surround.
Wall of Windows
Nothing can add more light to your kitchen than an entire wall of windows. If your home’s layout places your kitchen against an exterior wall, multiple vertical windows across the backside of your kitchen is a popular kitchen window trend.
Contrasting colors are a great way to draw the eye. In a bright, airy kitchen, black metal frames not only look modern and trendy, but they also highlight your beautiful, replacement windows. If your kitchen has a darker, more moody vibe, then slender white window frames will draw the eye.
Tall Arched Windows
Height is a visually appealing design element. It’s why we love the look of a tall ceiling, which makes homes feel larger. Large windows in your kitchen space make a big statement, especially when you veer from the traditional rectangular windows into an arched style. The large windows bring additional light into your home, while the arch adds a touch of something different to your space.
Another way to achieve more height and design dimension comes through transom windows. They shed more light into your kitchen space, and the breakup of the streamlined window can make a greater impact than a single window frame. Depending on your home’s style, transom windows are a unique trend that can set your home apart and really elevate your kitchen.
3 Elements to Consider with Your Window Replacement
It’s first important to know whether or not your remodel requires new windows. Take some time to determine if a window replacement is necessary. However, the truth is that the benefits of updating our home’s windows are numerous for your home and life. To maximize those benefits, consider the following elements during your replacement window selection.
1. Style and Color
Attaining the right style for your kitchen remodel means choosing replacement windows that highlight the look you are hoping to achieve. Utilize our tips for choosing the right style and color for your replacement windows.
2. Energy Efficiency
Seek out windows that are energy-efficient. They can decrease your energy bills and eliminate unwanted drafts. This is especially important for larger windows that have the potential for increased unwanted air movement if not properly installed.
Look for windows with durable frames, such as Infinity by Marvin windows. Fiberglass frames are stronger, longer-lasting, and require less maintenance than other framing options.
Make Your Windows Play the Right Role in Your Kitchen Remodel
Choosing the right window designs for your kitchen remodel is simply a part of the overall design plan. To make the greatest impact during your remodel, seek out a remodeling contractor that emphasizes design as well as construction. When both elements play a role in your remodel, the end result is a well-functioning, beautiful space.
