If you’ve always wanted your own greenhouse but you don’t exactly own 40 acres of land, garden windows may be a way for you to get a little piece of the green life. For a unique look that can change the character of any room in your home, consider this type of replacement window when remodeling time comes around.
Garden windows are relatively simple way to bring more light into a home and create a green space right in your very own living room, bedroom, dining room or kitchen. In addition to creating a small oasis of tranquility, having a garden window can provide your home with an extra dose of oxygen.
A typical garden window design consists of a main front panel of fixed glass, with two panels on the side. The side panels are usually the panels that are opened and can either be double hung windows or vents.
The major attraction of garden windows is in the name itself. Most homeowners who have garden windows use them to display an array of plants of different varieties. The greenery can brighten any room and can cleanse the air as well. Add an optional shelf to the garden window and you double the amount of greenery you can add to the space.
