A garden window is essentially a box made from windows that juts out of the side of your home. A garden window is actually four to five windows combined into one, so the windows come together to create a way-cool box with a bottom shelf, or multiple shelves that you can make use of. More often than not, the shelf space is meant to accommodate plants (hence the name), but garden windows are versatile enough to hold just about any knick-knack or kitchen item. When looking to add an interesting and useful element to your home, a garden window could be the perfect solution.
Waste Not, Want Not
Garden windows aren’t just for kitchens, either. They can really add much-needed shelf space to a smaller room in a home and they are often more affordable than other options like bay windows. Not only do the windows help extend the space of a room, but they can function as a unique architectural feature as well.
It’s common for garden windows to come with side panels that open up with built-in screens. These panels are meant to serve as ventilation to help keep your plants healthy. Without proper ventilation, it’s possible for plants to wither during the summer months. Be sure to check out different garden window options and make sure that they have ventilation if you plan to use them for plants.
Garden windows require very precise measurements, which is why the pros at Homestar Windows and Doors will take specific measurements based on the available space in order to get you the right sized garden window. Remember, the more closely the windows dimensions match up with the existing wall space, the less likely the window is to leak or let cold air into your home.

Whether you’re looking for added planting space or you just want to open up your room a bit more, a garden window is a fun way to do it. While they’re less weatherproof than other window options and they don’t offer the same level of insulation, there’s something special about attaching a little greenhouse right to the side of your home.
