When it comes to finding the right window for your home, it’s best to work with a good window company who will help you every step of the way. Replacing a window often begins with a thorough planning phase where you make decisions on what style, color, and finish you want for your home. The requirements for a replacement window will change from one room to another, and it’s helpful to know how to find the right window for each of these rooms.
With so many factors to consider during a window replacement, finding the right product that meets your needs can sound like a daunting task. Our design consultants and window professionals at Renewal by Andersen® of Louisville/Lexington offer these tips to help make this project both easy and enjoyable for you, the homeowner:
Living Room Windows
Living rooms are focused on giving your family and guests a relaxing space, and windows play an important role in this matter. You want a style that has a wide glass area with as little framing as possible to brighten up the room and provide it with much natural lighting and beautiful views of the outdoors. The top choices for this purpose are double-hung, large casements and bay windows, which also offer additional seating space should you need it.
Kitchen and Dining Rooms
In the same vein as living rooms, you want dining areas to be just as welcoming. Bay and bow windows offer expansive glass areas as well as extra floor space. Kitchen sinks, on the other hand, can be transformed into a room’s focal point by pairing it with a good window. Casement and sliding windows tend to work well for this purpose.
Bedrooms have certain code requirements which could limit the type of replacement windows you can use. For instance, windows must be large enough to serve as an egress point in case of an emergency. This also means it must be operable so picture windows are out of the picture, so to speak. Instead, choose a double-hung for a classic and timeless style.
