This traditional kitchen makes the most of its spectacular view of an adjacent stand of trees, thanks to a generous wall of windows. Extending all the way up to the ceiling, the collage of picture windows makes the wall almost seem to disappear. The abundant light and clear sight lines help the room feel much larger and more vibrant. Best of all, the white-painted, wood-framed windows are low maintenance: Complete with JELD-WEN's proprietary AuraLast wood, they boast superior protection against moisture and rot. That's of course in addition to their obvious aesthetic virtues. Win, win.
