Garden windows bring the outdoors inside

Garden windows picture

Garden windows are most commonly found in kitchens, but can also be used in other rooms. A garden window provides a three-dimensional opening to the outdoors, and can act as a mini-greenhouse. You can accessorize it with an herb garden, flowers and potted plants, or treasured curios.

These windows come in many sizes, styles, materials and price points. If you are replacing a standard-sized window and have rudimentary carpentry skills, you may be able to do the installation yourself. Custom sizes might require professional installation. Choose top or side panels that open for ventilation, and select your frame material from vinyl, aluminum or wood. Energy-efficient windows with the Energy Star; rating can save on heating and cooling costs and may qualify for a tax rebate. Pricing depends on the window size and material. Double or triple panes, coatings and accessories can add to the cost. Top manufacturers include Andersen, Certainteed, Jeld-Wen, Milgard and Thermal Industries.

    We have a bay window with 1 stationary window and 2 side windows that open up in the kitchen. We were just informed that we are not permitted to attach a hummingbird feeder to the outside window. Do you make an insert that would go in the movable window and allow the hummingbird station to be technically inside our condo. Sort of like a box to insert in the open window space. Plexiglass? The hummingbirds are looking for their feeder. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    Hi, I was wondering if this garden window opens at the top and has staionary side panels. Do you just sell the garden window and do you ship. Thank you, Lynn
