Small Garden on Your Kitchen Window

What is a Garden Window?

A garden window is similar to a bay window, extending out from the walls of your house to provide a dedicated area for plants, herbs, and flowers. Garden windows are typically wider and deeper than traditional bay windows, creating the perfect spot for your indoor plants to thrive. These types of windows are ideal for adding light and space to your home, and can easily impress guests with your natural decorations.

Benefits of a Garden Window

  • Natural Light: With more window spaces, the added light from a garden window will not only benefit your plants but also the kitchen itself. This also gives you an expanded view of your home’s surroundings, so you can easily watch your kids play or birds visit your yard.
  • Greenhouse: These types of windows are sometimes called greenhouse windows as they provide the perfect environment for plants to grow. The fresh smells of the plants can also rejuvenate your kitchen and entice you to spend more time exploring recipes.
  • Renovation Aesthetic: For guests of your home, a new garden window will be a major talking point, and you may find them hovering around the new feature throughout their visit. Installing a garden window can give off the impression that you had the entire kitchen renovated, but it was just one aspect.
