The different rooms of your home serve different purposes. So, it wouldn’t make sense to have the same type of windows in a bathroom where you need privacy and a kitchen where you want plentiful natural light, right? It is much more practical to have unique window styles installed to suit the purpose and use of each separate room. Read on to find out the best windows styles for each room of your house.
The living room serves as the center of almost any home. So, it only makes sense to have a large window installed to match the grand importance of this room. Picture windows feature one, big fixed-pane frame and can fill much of a large living room wall, while bay and bow windows are projection-style windows and, therefore, create additional storage or seating. Any of these styles will boast expansive outdoor views and light up your living room.
Kitchen windows are frequently located above the sink, which means they’re not always the easiest to access. For a window style that boasts simple operation and offers plenty of ventilation, opt for a sliding window. You’ll be able to quickly slide open your window even in the middle of cooking or baking. Or, if you have a green thumb and like to grow your own herbs, a garden window is the perfect sunny spot to grow small plants.
Sure, you probably want a fair amount of privacy in your bedroom, but that doesn’t mean you want to completely sacrifice natural light. Double-hung and casement windows are both ideal for bedrooms because of their standard size and easy operation.
A room where you want total privacy, though, is the bathroom. Awning or hopper windows are usually smaller in size and can be installed higher up on the wall, minimizing the chances of nosy neighbors peeking inside. Plus, these windows easily tilt in or out so you can ventilate your bathroom.
