Picture windows are perhaps best used to frame beautiful outdoor views and incorporate them into your home design. With or without grilles, their typically oversized glass provides plenty of daylighting opportunities and brightens any space naturally.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we can make picture windows better by pairing them with other types of fixtures. These window styles complement the picture type the most:
This makes up for the lack of ventilation. The most efficient among movable replacement windows in Beaverton, OR, the casement allows outdoor drafts to go in and let staleindoor air out. When closed, it provides a tight seal for maximum efficiency. As casement fixtures only have one sash, they provide a large glass area to match the expansive views picture windows provide, especially if they have no grilles.
A window wall that comprises picture and double-hung fixtures are now common in many homes. The fusion of these window styles will lend your space a traditional appeal, while capturing your panoramic landscapes. This is why it’s a common theme for bay windows.
Double-hung replacement windows in West Linn are efficient, as well. Modern products feature a more weathertight design and long-lasting materials. In fact, our Fibrex® frames make sure our windows’ operable top and bottom sashes promote airflow to ventilate your room.
If ventilation is not a major concern, the addition of arched glass above your picture windows is an ideal option. The curves bring more interest to your interior and exterior home design, which is dominated by squares and rectangles. An arched/picture window combination provides extra functionality to your space, as well. It allows daylighting to continue if you cover your picture windows for privacy.
At Renewal by Andersen of Portland, we offer a variety of replacement windows in Tigard. If you prefer a different geometric shape to complement your picture windows, feel free to be as creative as you want and we’ll make you a fixture that’s distinctively yours.
