Sliding Windows: The Best Window for Stuffy Rooms

The sliding window is one of the most popular choices for window replacement. While it’s not a classic style like casement and double-hung windows, it can easily be incorporated into any home, regardless of architectural style.

Sliding Windows: The Best Window for Stuffy Rooms

This window is the best style for stuffy and cramped rooms. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses why this is so.

The Sliding Window

As its name suggests, this window style slides on a track instead of swinging open. It’s essentially a sleeker and more space-efficient version of the casement window, and provides excellent ventilation and daylighting, thanks to its expansive glass area.

This window’s space-efficient design makes it a great alternative for rooms and areas that can’t reasonably fit a projective window, such as a walkway. In addition, the expanded glass area makes these replacement windows the perfect choice for cramped rooms because they will make the room seem bigger and more open.

Rooms Where Sliding Windows Work Well

The kitchen is normally one of the stuffiest rooms in the entire house. It’s a busy place where the atmosphere and air quality are naturally low due to the moisture and variety of cooking smells in the air. The sliding window benefits this room by providing ample lighting and ventilation.

The bathroom is another room where the sliding window fits perfectly. Unlike picture windows that only provide lighting and exterior views, sliding windows allow you to naturally ventilate the otherwise stuffy (and smelly) bathroom without resorting to fans and exhausts.

Finally, there’s the garage. While this part of the house doesn’t get too stuffy, its unique placement in the floor plan make it a poor place for swing-out windows. Sliding windows are the perfect solution since they don’t swing out and remain flush to the wall even when open.
