Windows By Colour
Kitchen windows act in two different ways; aside from simply letting light into your kitchen, they also help you to get rid of excess steam and moisture, as well as cooking smells. Having the right windows in your kitchen is about more than just they way look from the outside. It is important that your kitchen windows are made with appropriate materials to be able to stand up to everyday living, such as high steam and moisture levels from your kitchen sink, changing temperatures and condensation. Here at Finesse we stock a huge range of window styles and designs which will work perfectly in your kitchen.

Which window is best for kitchens?
Casement Windows are popular for kitchens along with sliding windows as you can place sliding windows above kitchen sinks and counters.
Why do kitchen sinks face a window?
Kitchen sinks have always been placed beneath the window because the window is, of course, on an outside wall. The most efficient and cost-effective solution when it comes to waste pipes is to use as little a waste pipe as possible from the sink to the drains.
What is a window over a kitchen sink called?
These windows are normally called casement windows. Casement windows open on one side and swing outward, unless it is a top hung window. They are simple to access and use with only one hand, which is excellent because reaching over a counter and sink might be difficult.
What type of window is best over a kitchen sink?
The best windows over a kitchen sink are garden windows, casement windows and sliding windows.
How tall should kitchen windows be?
Kitchen windows are typically placed higher than windows in other rooms — 42 inches from the ground should give you room for lower cabinets, counters, and backsplash. When designing your kitchen, try to place windows to maximise access to natural light and weather patterns, which generally go from west to east.
What is the difference between a terrace canopy, glass room, conservatory and veranda?
A Veranda and Terrace Canopy are two words implying the same thing; An extension to a house covering an outside area. Or a roof supported by two posts, made of aluminium with a polycarbonate roofing.
A glass room refers to an 'uninsulated' house extension in the shape of a terrace canopy or veranda equipped with (glass) (sliding) doors so that the area can be fully closed. Architecturally, a glass room is not part of the house.
A glass room looks like a conservatory, but the main differences is that a conservatory refers to an insulated extension of the house. So this is an actual part of a house, making it more expensive and complicated to buy and install a conservatory.
Finesse Windows are able to supply terrace canopies, verandas and garden rooms.
Do you need planning permissions for a Veranda Glass Room?
You will only need planning permission if your Veranda Glass Room is over 3m in height, or is located on the roof of your home or it will be larger than 50% of the land that the original house covers.
What are the benefits of an aluminium veranda?
A veranda allows you to create a covered outside area. In addition to being a beautiful addition to your house, it also allows you to find shelter from the sun, or to sit outside in rainy or cold weather. In addition, it also allows you to better protect your garden furniture against weather influences.
Why choose an aluminium Veranda or Glass Room from Finesse Windows?
Can I also add a glass wall to my Veranda at a later date?
Adding a glass door system to an existing canopy at a later moment is no problem at all.
How to maintain your Veranda?
A Veranda requires little maintenance. We do recommend however to clean the Veranda about twice a year. In addition to the fact that your Veranda looks better without dirt, it also increases the lifespan of the Veranda.
When cleaning your Veranda, we recommend using a sponge or a soft cloth. You can easily clean the aluminium frame with water and a neutral soap.
The polycarbonate roofing can be cleaned in the same way, but be extra careful. Don't forget to frequently keep the gutter free from leaves and dirt to prevent the water drain from getting clogged.
Will a veranda add value to your home?
A great looking Veranda Glass Room installed on a property could add anything between 5% and 15% to the overall value of your home. (Source: Estateagentnetworking.co.uk)

SHIELD PROTECTION GLASS the most secure window glass solution available
Many of us do not even think about needing to change our kitchen windows, unless something happens to our home. The fact that windows do not need changing very often means many of us live in homes with old and ineffective windows which could certainly be improved with new designs. New kitchen windows feature up to date security features as well as better glazing options which can help to improve the efficiency of your home. By reducing heat loss during the winter and maintaining the temperature when it is warmer in the summer, good quality windows can make a real difference to your home. Aside from your living room, your kitchen is often one of the most used rooms in your home, so the windows are likely to be more important here than in other areas.
