Imagine this: you have just bought a new house and are touring it before the big move. As you go along minding your own business, trying to figure out which furniture goes where in all the rooms in the house, you suddenly come to an epiphany; this house is yours, meaning you have the creative freedom that goes with owning one. Then, you notice that your windows aren’t exactly up to your standards nor do they match the room. What do you do? You get them replaced to match their respective rooms, of course!
In this post, our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Toledo discuss which window styles suit which room in your home.
The living room is the largest room in the house and, therefore, you can have larger windows. Casement windows are usually the popular choices, but, if you are upgrading your windows, try large combination windows like picture windows mixed with ventilating windows to give you the maximum lighting and ventilation at the same time.
It’s important to make the kitchen look functional and appealing since it’s one of the most used rooms in the house. It’s best to have large windows or combination windows by the sink. A horizontal sliding window is also popular since it’s not only easy to slide from any angle, but it also lets in a good amount of light. It’s also easy to open to let out the smoke and smells from whatever you’re cooking at the moment. Casement windows could also work if you have to reach over a sink.
There are three suitable window styles for your bedroom that will allow sufficient air flow. The casement is the easiest to open of the three windows while awning windows can be left open despite light rain. Tall double-hung windows, on the other hand, can have both sashes left open for maximum airflow and ventilation. If you have building codes to comply with, then horizontal sliding windows are the way to go.
Privacy is the name of the game when it comes to the bedroom. With that in mind, for maximum privacy, it’s best to go with glass block windows since they can give you a suitable amount of light without compromising your privacy. Vinyl and awning windows are popular bathroom window choices as well.
