Summer is just around the corner, and homeowners are increasingly looking to spend time outside. For some, this means relaxing in a backyard or other private outdoor space, but not everyone has access to greenery at home. Garden windows, designed to function like mini-greenhouses, offer an option for bringing the outdoors in so you can enjoy greenery year-round, no matter your backyard size.
Before determining where to install your garden windows, it’s worth discussing their design and use. Garden windows are three-dimensional windows designed to extend beyond your home’s exterior. Not only do they add additional light to your home, but they also give you the opportunity to grow plants in a controlled environment, independent of the outdoor weather.
One of the best places to place a garden window is in your kitchen. Often, as a result of the design of your home, kitchen windows can be difficult to reach or open. A garden window that opens offers the additional benefit of ventilation and can make your kitchen more functional. Grow herbs for use in cooking, or place plants that act as air purifiers to help keep your kitchen free of contaminants. What’s more, installing garden windows in such a highly trafficked area in your home will remind you to water your plants and allow you to enjoy their presence more than almost anywhere else!
While a kitchen installation may make the most sense, garden windows can be placed anywhere in your home, offering additional light and space for greenery.
Garden windows can be used in a variety of ways in your home. A garden window shelf offers you a perfect place for plants of all types, and open garden windows allow fresh air into your home. There are two major perks to garden windows:
Garden windows can be easily placed almost anywhere in your home due to their small size. Any existing window space can be easily repurposed for a garden window installation.
Garden windows are durable and long-lasting. They’re good for the environment, as they help to foster plant growth, and can even help ventilate your home in the summer or warm it in the winter!
Garden windows can be used anywhere and add both greenery and natural light. Whether you’re trying to accent your kitchen, add a pop of color and extra light to your bedroom, or looking for a unique additional piece of decor, a garden window offers the additional space you need without sacrificing your room’s look or layout.
