Traditional window designs work for most homes but allowing yourself to think outside the box can really spark your creative ability and pay off in the long run. Instead of using a cookie-cutter treatment sometimes using everyday materials in unexpected ways can change the style of your kitchen from looking like a affordable feature to an expensive one without breaking your bank. We put together a few ideas for kitchen window treatments that might help you make your decision.
As a stop-gap measure, a homeowner with backdrafting problems can open a window near the kitchen every time the range-hood fan is turned on. Although this solution works, it won’t satisfy most homeowners, and builders who suggest this remedy may still be legally liable for future backdrafting problems.
I got a copy of the GE Monogram installation instructions, and discovered that they were remarkably unhelpful. Astonishingly, the instructions make no mention of the range hood’s requirement for makeup air. The issue was deflected by a confusing reminder that combustion appliances require adequate combustion air: “Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuelburning equipment to prevent backdrafting.”
