When choosing windows for living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms, there is a lot more flexibility. Consider how you plan to use the windows and what, if any, furniture will be placed near them.
Casement windows, either individually or grouped together are a great solution. You’ll get full length ventilation with less glass obstruction, plus they are easy to operate. Consider combining casement windows with awning and picture windows to create dramatic window combinations.
For more of a traditional look, choose double-hung windows, either individually or combined. A great alternative to double-hung windows are sliding windows. Sliding or gliding windows are similar to double-hung windows, but instead of the sash moving up and down, the sash moves side to side. Both window options provide great ventilation and excellent performance.
