One of the more unique styles of windows we install here at Rescom Exteriors are garden windows. A garden window looks very much like a glass box extending from the side of your home. With an angled top to allow rainwater to run off, and a solid base that can be used as a shelf, many “green thumb” homeowners have discovered, a garden window is the ideal place for a small indoor garden.
Most of the garden windows we install are located in the home’s kitchen, usually over the sink area. The extension of the box shape gives the room a larger, more open look. And the extra glass allows plenty of extra light into the kitchen for natural illumination.
What can you grow in a garden window? The compact size and abundant sunlight makes it ideal for herbs, flowers, or even small tomato plants. Many garden windows have an optional base that captures runoff if you water too much. We can even add extra shelves to give you more space to grow!
While some garden windows are sealed, we can design one that is hinged to open at the top light an awning window for added ventilation. The garden windows installed by Rescom feature our energy efficient glass and sturdy frame materials for durability and to ward off winter’s chill.
