Garden windows are one of the many types of specialty windows that BM Windows installs for our San Diego customers. A garden window, sometimes called a greenhouse window, projects outward from an exterior wall of the house. It has glass on the sides and top, a shelf on the bottom, and an adjustable shelf in the middle. The side windows are usually single-hung sliders that can be opened to provide ventilation to a room. They are easy to operate and can be a fun and unique addition to your home.
Garden windows are found most often in kitchens, but can also be installed in a bathroom, or really any room in the home, and offer several unique advantages.
First, they add brightness to a room by letting in lots of natural light through the multiple panes of glass. Anlin Garden Windows, which we recommend, come standard with double-strength, exterior glazed glass.
A garden window can also add convenient extra storage to a small room. If installed in a kitchen, a garden window is an ideal spot to place pots of fresh herbs or other frequently used kitchen items. In other rooms of the house, garden windows can be used to hold potted plants or decorative items.
Garden windows are great for homeowners looking to add a bit of architectural interest to a home. They are an affordable upgrade that can have a big impact and help turn an average home into something special.
In addition, installing a garden window doesn’t mean sacrificing the energy efficiency of your home. BM Windows recommends Anlin replacement windows, with ¾” overall insulated glass unit thickness and fusion-welded corners for excellent energy efficiency and watertight strength. Anlin’s glazing systems are industry leading, offering the highest levels of energy savings available to homeowners.
