Windows don’t always have to be flush against the walls of your home—sometimes, homeowners opt for windows that can add depth and dimension as well as natural light to their home. Garden windows are one of the most popular three-dimensional options for Pennsylvania homeowners looking to bring nature inside their homes. A type of bay window, garden windows are like mini-greenhouses where plants and flowers can thrive. Their ledges are the perfect spot for décor, houseplants, or a lazy kitten that wants to soak in the sun.
