Your living room is one of the busiest places in your home. It makes sense to design its interiors thoughtfully as it will be one of the first things your guests will see when they enter your home. Of course, part of that careful planning is choosing the right type of window, but which one is best for your home?
While having a visually perfect window for your living room is crucial, performance is also just as important. You’ll want your replacement windows to operate just as well as it looks, after all. To help you choose, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle has shared below some of the common types of windows for you to consider:
1. Double-Hung Window
This type of window is commonly used in living rooms because of its classic style that matches nearly any type of interior design. These also provide great ventilation, air quality, and overall indoor comfort just by easily opening both sashes.
2. Casement Window
When installed properly by professional window contractors, you benefit greatly from this type of window. It offers both style and functionality that’s designed for unobstructed landscape views that can be perfect for any living room. You can even increase your indoor comfort by swinging the sash outward to let air and sunlight into your living room!
3. Picture Window
While this type of window is inoperable, it can still serve as a good source of natural light for your home. It’ll even make it look more spacious due to its big glass area that’s capable of illuminating your whole living room.
Other Tips To Consider
If you’re considering a combination window for your living room opening, you’ll need to understand which operable windows have a high frame profile and which ones have a low profile. Casement windows, for instance, have a high or wide frame profile while slider windows generally have a lower profile frame.
Fixed windows are typically available in both high- and low-profile options, and they can be designed to match the profile of the operable window beside it. However, some homeowners tend to mix up their options because windows with high profiles would often have less glass surface area which lets in less visible light.
