Let There Be (the right kind of) Light!
The right kind of window can transform a room. But with so many different types of windows to choose from, how can you make the right decision in each room? That's where we come in. We took a look at all the options, considered the possibilities, and found the best type of windows for each room in your house. Go no further than these five ideas next time you are thinking about window replacement.
Kitchens need lots of light so you can see what you're doing. They also require ventilation for those times when the wonderful smells of cooking become a little bit overwhelming. A casement window, which boasts a crank for easy opening, is ideal for this situation. Cook freely while the light comes in and the aromas flow outside.
The living room is where your family comes together whether that’s for game night or a birthday party. You want a window that will almost be like a frame—a big window that lets you look out on a beautiful fall day, but also frames your Christmas tree for all to see. Sounds like a picture window to us. Consider options like our 400 Series or A-Series windows, which are available in sizes up to six feet and eight feet wide, respectively.
The dining room is a spot to sit and enjoy life. So many bodies, however, can get a little stuffy. Why not install a 400 Series Frenchwood® hinged patio door alongside some double-hung windows to give you and your family an option to open things up to the outside world. A warm wood interior goes well with any meal.
It can be nice to have a bit of whimsy in the bedroom. For that, look no further than an awning window, which appear simple at first glance but have a hidden trick. Awning windows let in plenty of light, but place them high up on your bedroom walls to guarantee privacy. You can even consider installing a window above your bed. Nothing like staring out at the stars before you hit the hay.
While you might think you want small windows in the bathroom, the smartest designers are increasingly opting for bigger ones. Double-hung windows are an excellent way to bring in natural light and provide plenty of ventilation that allows humidity to escape and helps to prevent mold and mildew.
