Bathing your interior in sunlight gives your living space an open, airy feel, creating an illusion of a more spacious living area. With the right window style, you can enjoy a brighter, larger-feeling room. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, the leading window replacement contractor, lists four types of windows that can help you achieve this.
1. Picture Windows
The expansive glass area of this style allows ample daylight into your interior. As the most energy-efficient window style available, picture windows will also help you cut down on your energy expenses. Picture windows are especially great for framing scenic outdoor views. Keep in mind that picture windows are inoperable, so may not be the best choice for rooms that need extra ventilation.
2. Casement Windows
This operable window style admits abundant natural light into your home just like picture windows, but can be opened or closed, giving you control over ventilation. You do need to consider spatial limitations when installing casement windows because they swing open. Make sure you don’t install them in high-traffic areas, such as garden paths or hallways.
3. Gliding Windows
If you have limited space in a room, gliding windows might be the perfect choice. Gliding windows move horizontally on a track, providing effortless and space-saving operation.
4. Bay Windows
Bay windows are unique in that they actually reclaim floor space, creating an alcove. You can use the extra space a bay window provides as a cozy reading nook, extra storage or a breakfast area.
