Garden windows are a charming addition to any home. These delightful installations are becoming more and more popular for homeowners that want to increase their house appeal while adding a practical solution to space limitations around windows. Garden windows provide additional light and offer more shelf space than a standard window ledge. You can start a little garden indoors when you include a garden window in your home.
The Greenhouse Effect
Garden windows look very similar to what you would find in the structure of a greenhouse. Because the top and each side are glass, they concentrate the sun's heat and provide an insulating bubble of warmth. However, there is little to prevent the heat build-up within the garden window frame, except to open the window.
The construction of garden windows means they are highly insulated. This insulation is superior to standard windows and means their energy efficiency is far greater than average. Although garden windows have a higher price point than most other windows, they can save you money in the long run.
The look of garden windows improves the appearance of a home. It provides not only a great place to showcase your plant collection; they also help reduce your carbon footprint.
