What Are Picture Windows?

There is a vast variety of windows to choose from, and keeping all the styles straight can be tricky. Picture windows are one of the grander window options as they open up a home and welcome in lots of sunlight. But what exactly is a picture window?

A picture window is a large fixed window and is designed to provide a clear, unimpeded view. Because of their clear view, picture windows act as a frame for outside scenery.

Picture windows typically do not open and can be used in combination with other windows that do open. For instance, pairing casement windows on either side of your picture window provides that gorgeous picture frame feel while still allowing for outside ventilation. This combination of windows offers functionality and beauty in one neat package.

Choosing window treatments for your picture windows can be challenging, especially with extra-large or custom picture windows. A common and practical way to offer privacy for your picture windows is to mount curtains that can be pulled aside or let hang freely.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
