When choosing windows, function comes before form. A quintessential window style may help define an architectural style, but a single type of unit may not work for all of your rooms. Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee recommends a room-by-room approach for your project. This way, you can equip every area of your home with replacement windows that suit its unique functional requirements.
Living Rooms Accommodate Oversized Units
Your family room is usually the largest of your indoor spaces, which is why it’s the best place to have large glass units. This design idea is more ideal when there are marvelous views to capture. You can also opt for regular-sized units to usher adequate ambient light in.
To capture stunning landscapes, having a wall of picture windows or a panoramic bow could turn Mother Nature into an artwork. You can also install specialty windows to add an architectural flair to your existing units.
Kitchens Love Bays
Your kitchen is one of your busiest home areas. It needs plenty of room, illumination, and natural ventilation. This is why it’s perhaps the best place to have a bay unit. Its bump-out creates extra floor space, giving you various design options. You can turn the space into added storage or a dining nook. The bay’s multiple glass panels face different directions, catching a lot of sunshine. With operating flankers, you can invite fresh breezes in and expel moist indoor air easily.
Bedrooms Require Operable Windows
Of all movable units, casement units provide the largest operable area. However, if your second-floor bedroom has a back staircase, you may be allowed to install one tall double hung window after another. This type of unit is easy to clean, helps increase the airflow, and creates a traditional look.
Bathrooms Need Portholes or Clerestories
If you want to open up your bath to the outside world, we recommend you have glass units installed high up the wall. Long, narrow clerestories would keep your bathroom sunlit while ensuring privacy. If you like to have one or two operable windows for ventilation, dress them with blinds or drapes and top them with fixed transoms. This way, you can block the view when necessary while enjoying optimum daylighting.
