Picture windows have a simple design that makes them highly versatile. Whether you want to increase natural lighting in your home or frame a beautiful view, picture windows can help you achieve your goal. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares some tips to make the most of your picture windows.
On Their Own
One of the great things about picture windows is that they can be manufactured in larger sizes than your standard window replacement unit. This means you can have them sized as tall and as long as the wall to let in as much natural light as possible during the day or to frame a panoramic view of the outdoors.
Picture windows can also be built smaller than operable windows to address whatever home improvement requirements you might have. Small picture windows are great in stairwells and hallways that could benefit from additional illumination during the day.
In Combination With Other Window Styles
Many homeowners like picture windows because they feature expansive glass areas. However, because they are inoperable, they can be problematic in areas of the home where ventilation is a concern, like the kitchen or bathroom.
To get the best of both worlds, you can have picture windows installed in combination with other window replacement styles like double-hung or casement. You can also opt for a bay window, featuring a large picture window in the center flanked by smaller operable windows on either side.
