The Best Window Styles for Your BedroomsNovember 21, 2018
Bedroom windows are some of the most used windows in any home, so they have to strike a balance between form and function. When choosing replacement windows for your bedrooms, consider the following styles that fulfill all bedroom window requirements.
Double-hung windows are the most popular bedroom window style. Its familiar design works in any architectural style and bedroom size; add some Colonial-style grilles and double-hung windows perfectly fit the traditional home styles. Remove the grilles and choose neutral frame colors and you have a modern-looking window. Double-hung windows are ideal for small bedrooms, as they can be opened in such a way that they have two openings that allow efficient room ventilation.
Renewal by Andersen® double-hung windows are easy to clean and maintain. The exclusive Fibrex® material frames require virtually no maintenance. The sashes can be tilted inwards, which allows easy indoor cleaning, so there’s no need to use a ladder to clean upper-story bedroom windows.
Casement windows are the most energy-efficient operable window style. The hinged design makes the sash press against the frame, forming an airtight seal. A fully-opened casement window utilizes the entire window area for ventilation, ideal for flushing stale air from a room, and can even catch a gentle breeze with the right wind direction. Renewal by Andersen casement windows feature an easy-clean hinge, which allows easy indoor access to the entire sash area for easy cleaning.
Bay and Bow Windows
Bay and bow windows are basically a combination of several windows that form a useful projecting point, which can be used as a display space or additional seating. The increased glass area allows more natural light and makes the room look bigger from both sides. A common bay window configuration features a fixed central window that captures the view and two operable windows at the sides for ventilation. Thanks to the combination of Fibrex material frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, drafts are the last thing you’ll have to worry about with our bay and bow window systems.
