You can make any room in your home brighter with picture windows. These big windows help bring sunlight and the outdoors into your home without the discomfort of too-cold or too-warm air. At Pure Energy Window Company, we provide energy-efficient picture windows to homes throughout Brighton and Southeast Michigan. Let us brighten your home with our sustainable, high-performance picture windows.
Picture windows are large glass panels that don’t open and allow for an unobstructed view. As they’re inoperable, picture windows can be installed in areas that are hard to reach to let more light in. With the immense view of the outside they provide, picture windows resemble portraits hung on the wall, which is where they get the name “picture” windows.
You can open up just about any space with a picture window, including rooms that tend to be drafty. They’re the perfect solution for allowing natural light in without having to open the windows and bring cold air inside. Picture windows can be used to create a nice view of a garden, cityscape, or any other scenery you may have.
For your new picture windows, wood is the best material. It’s durable, aesthetically pleasing, and matches almost any home’s interior. Wood is almost the most expensive material to make picture windows, so other options are vinyl and aluminum. Both wood and vinyl can be energy efficient, but wood tends to require more maintenance than vinyl. Aluminum isn’t a very efficient material for picture window frames, so we usually don’t offer this material.
We want your new picture windows to offer convenience, style, and functionality. That’s why we only use the best materials for windows at Pure Energy. Ensuring your home is comfortable and energy-efficient year-round is one of our top priorities.
Picture windows are best suited for rooms or areas where you don’t plan to open windows. Placing them close to high ceilings is common, as is installing floor-to-ceiling windows in a living space. A room where opening the window is more essential may not be the best choice for picture windows.
Similarly, you don’t want to install picture windows in a room where the sunlight streaming in causes problems. If the windows would create a glare on a television screen, for example, you might avoid putting them in that particular room.
Picture windows are ideal for viewing and appreciating a garden, skyline, or other gorgeous surroundings. Given their simplicity, they’re also easy to incorporate into your home’s interior designs. Some ways to use picture windows in your home might include:
