A Guide to Choosing Windows for Each Room

At Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, we offer different window types and styles that can perfectly fit your home. However, keep in mind the room where you are going to replace your old ones. Each area of your home has different requirements for replacement windows.

A Guide to Choosing Windows for Each Room

Below is a guide that can help you choose the right type and style of windows for every room.

Living Room

Your living room is a high activity area. As such, it should feel more spacious and well-lit. When choosing windows for this specific area of the home, consider those types with large glass areas and fewer grilles. These include picture windows and bay and bow windows.

Dining Area

Ventilation is key to a comfortable dining experience. For this, you can choose a sliding and double hung window. Such windows are ideal for this part of your home because they are easy to operate and let you control the amount of airflow in your kitchen.


For your kitchen, choose a window that you can easily operate when you reach it over a sink or counter. A casement window is the best choice for this. A sliding window would also suffice. Both of them also bring natural light because of their large glass panes.


The window for your bedroom must have daylighting capabilities, which help in bringing in natural light. Consider double hung and sliding windows that can provide airflow during warm nights.


Privacy is important for the window you will choose for your bathroom. You can pick specialty windows that can give you a fair amount of lighting while ensuring privacy. It could also be beneficial to have those you can operate, as long as they use patterned glass.

Each room deserves the right windows. To help you make a decision on which room is the best fit for your desired picture windows, consult Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee.

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!!!

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.

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.
