Kitchen Windows

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 kitchen window 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 to match your kitchen design, whether that means having a new double glazing unit to work around a window seat, or French Doors, our design ideas will work perfectly in your kitchen.

Kitchen Windows FAQ's

Casement Windows are popular for kitchens along with sliding windows as you can place sliding windows above kitchen sinks and counters.

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.

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.

The best windows over a kitchen sink are garden windows, casement windows and sliding windows.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Aluminium Verandas are generally cheaper than veranda's made from different materials.
  • An aluminium veranda offers a strong construction that will last for many years.
  • Aluminium requires little maintenance. It is a metal that doesn't corrode or rot like timber.
  • Aluminium Verandas have a longer lifespan, meaning that you just have to invest once, and can enjoy the veranda for many years, without having to  replace it.
  • Choosing Finesse Windows gives you peace of mind that you have chosen the best company for your Home Improvement project.


Adding a glass door system to an existing canopy at a later moment is no problem at all. 

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.

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:

The full height of most of our Veranda Glass Rooms is likely to be approximately 2.7m at its highest point. This is well within the 3m height you are allowed to use up in your permitted development rights. 

Yes we do provide a silicone seal where required e.g. where the side frames touch the house walls. The main reason for these seals is to ensure the finish is aesthetically pleasing. It's rare for a house wall to be perfectly straight so it's important to use a seal which takes up the small gaps between the wall and the aluminium frames. The seals will help to keep draughts out too however it's beneficial from a ventilation point of view for these spaces not to be completely sealed. 

The lip under the sliding doors is approximately 25mm tall, with a requirement that the track which the Doors sit on must be level. In most instances the patio that we are bolting onto is not perfectly level. The first step is to effectively pack and raise the track in any low areas of the patio base to ensure you get a decent level of protection from water running into the veranda. We then apply a trim over this packaging to ensure it looks ascetically pleasing. It is common for a patio to intentionally slope with a fall way from the home to the garden.

Yes, we can do this using our Conservatory design software (which we are currently developing). It will give you a good impression & help you to visualise the space - but it's not 100% true to life unfortunately .

We guarantee all verandas for 5 years. This includes all product & workmanship and is also insurance backed. Meaning that if anything was to happen to our company within the 5 year guarantee period - and you needed our help with anything - the 'Homepro' insurance policy would kick in and they would find another company who could rectify the problem at no expense to you. Please note that the only thing we do not guarantee is broken glass. This is true for all of our products (Windows, Doors, etc) as we can't be held responsible for glass being broken after we leave the site. 

Naturally we have all the statutory liability insurance in place as you'd expect. The reality is that we work in and around approximately 25 homes per week - and have done so for over 40 years. Sometimes things do go wrong and we always endeavour to put it right. 



From living rooms to Conservatories, we provide windows for any location.

Kitchen Window Designs

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.
