Picture windows are one of the most versatile window styles you can find. They are fixed, inoperable units that provide panoramic views and abundant natural lighting. To make the most of your picture window, you can pair it with other window styles that give rise to countless window configurations. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky lists four picture window combinations you can try.
1. Bow Windows
Bow windows protrude outwards from the wall and feature four to five windows of equal size. You can put two picture windows in the middle, flanked by casement windows on either side to maximize ventilation. Bow windows add rich architectural interest to any room in the home.
2. Bay Windows
Picture windows form an important component of any bay window. The usual setup is a large central picture window bordered by two smaller windows of your choice. We recommend pairing double-hung windows with the large picture window for ample ventilation.
3. Picture Borders
Alternatively, you can use picture windows to “border” a larger window. This is a popular strategy used in contemporary and ultra-modern homes, which favor clean lines and minimalist design.
4. Picture Window Topper
The picture window doesn’t necessarily have to be large. In fact, you can use small picture windows to “top” other designs. Employ this strategy to decorate the top part of your sliding windows. A small picture window above your sliding windows provides unique charm and extra daylighting, which is a plus for any home style.
