Servery windows are becoming extremely popular in Perth as more and more homeowners are deciding it is more fun to entertain guests at home than it is to go out. So, what are servery windows?
Servery windows are windows that go from the indoors to the outdoors and have an extra large sill on them. The sill allows the homeowner to pass food and beverages in and out of the kitchen, usually to an alfresco living area outside the kitchen. We have also seen this done where the entertainment area isn’t directly outside the kitchen, but these windows still provide a substantial “shortcut” to the patio compared to dragging food and beverages through the house.
What Kind of Windows Make Good Servery Windows?
The prominent sill is the main feature in servery windows. That means you can use many different designs. We love bifold windows as servery windows, but we have seen many other designs work.
Awning windows work fine, as long as you have room to open the awning window high enough to keep anyone from hitting their head. Under the right circumstances, casement windows work great, too. A design consult would help determine what would be the right design for your custom built windows.
The best feature is the ability to pass food and beverages through the window. A lot more Australians are choosing to stay home and entertain their friends and neighbours instead of going out and spending more money in pubs and restaurants. This is especially good for neighbourhood gatherings.
A lot of people have invested in alfresco living areas or at least turned their patios and decks into places worthy of entertaining their friends. Having servery windows in the kitchen makes it a lot easier for you to get food and beverages in and out of your kitchen. It also helps out with the cleanup at the end of the night if there are dishes to wash.
