Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
The kitchen sliding windows are made of two sashes that can slide horizontally over each other. There is a track that allows the left and right movement of the windows. You can add more that two sashes to make your windows taller and wider. Since the track that is made for sliding of the sashes is little above the ground it doesnt allow the dust to settle on it. This way it becomes easier to maintain the windows and dust will never jam the working of the windows thus increasing its life.
Especially good for covering patio doors these window coverings preserve an outdoors look. Some interior decorators also use them as attractive room dividers. The dramatic size of these wall to wall floor to floor window coverings creates a striking image. To install these window coverings you need some kind of track to hold the window frame. Unlike wood blinds where the window and blinds are separate in sliding panels they are the same. Some have tracking on the top and bottom while some only have it on one side.
At first you will be having a hard time removing and placing the windows back in place. You need to learn how to work on them which later on can be easier. Cleaning these kinds of windows is not that easy especially if you are doing it alone. You need to develop certain skills to be able to perfectly finish the cleaning. Sliding panels are a great alternative to window blinds and horizontal window doors. They have a softer look than glass and can also be great accents in an Asian themed decor. Sliding panels have that special ability to be both wall and window at the same time. They filter light and provide privacy at the same time.
