Playing Favorites: 7 Popular Window StylesDecember 18, 2014
There’s nothing more comforting than having a cup of coffee on a lazy day while enjoying the gorgeous view from your double hung window in Waukesha. Whether you notice it or not, your windows bring the outdoor feel inside and allow you to connect with your home’s exterior.
A good window boosts the aesthetic of your home. There are windows that complement the architectural design of your home; you just need to be keen on choosing the right one. We’ll help you narrow down your search. Here are seven of the most popular windows today:
- Awning Windows
These windows open from the top and tilt outward, providing an open window space without allowing water to penetrate into your home. Because of their functionality, they are a prevalent choice for the kitchen and bathroom.
- Bow Windows
This option is ideal for homes with curved architecture. The style uses more glass panels than bay windows. The replacement windows in Waukesha that we offer have energy-saving benefits from our Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes.
- Bay Windows
Bay windows have come a long way since their use in castles during the Renaissance period. Today, they are highly esteemed for the amount of light they allow inside modest homes and mansions alike.
- Casement Windows
This option’s popularity has spread in the UK even before the sash window was invented. Today, they are still in demand in many European countries. Long and thin, they open outwards, allowing more sunlight to flow inside your home.
- Double Hung Windows
This is the most widely used style today. A double hung is composed of two vertically arranged panels, which can be moved all the way up and down.
- Picture Windows
These windows are known for their versatility when combined with other window styles. Picture windows have large single glass panels that are mounted to your home’s exterior walls. They do not open but they make up for it with the beautiful sceneries they allow you to see.
- Sliding Windows
Sliding windows are a popular option for homeowners with limited space in their homes. The sliding window offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee uses sleeker frames and more glass for a maximum glass surface area.
You’ll surely find something to match the existing architectural structure of your home. At Renewal by Andersen, we offer more than just top quality windows but excellent warranties too. For your window replacement needs, call us today for more information.
