Whether you’re remodeling or building a new home, you want to enjoy the scenery from inside as much as possible, especially if there’s a lovely lake, mountain, or forest just beyond your property. This means your home needs plenty of windows. But which ones lend themselves to the best possible views? Here are the 10 most popular styles to consider.
Sliders tend to be the largest operable windows available. They feature one fixed and one moving pane that slides horizontally for cool breezes to go along with the splendid view.
The single-sash casement window cranks open vertically on a metal track.
Hinged at the top with a horizontal orientation, awning windows — tend to work best in bathrooms and walk-in closets. Positioned at eye level, they provide a look outside without compromising privacy. In this way, awnings grant amazing views where there otherwise would be no view at all.
These classic windows are available with innovative style. With slimmer lines and more visible glass, you get better views while staying true to traditional style.
These are similar to double-hung windows, but only the bottom sash operates. Historic single-hung windows are ideal if you’re hoping to combine classic elegance with modern efficiency.
Also called a fixed window, this style doesn’t operate. In fact, its sole purpose is to provide natural light and stunning vistas. With no moving parts to worry about, picture windows can be incredibly large, eliminating many restrictions.
Bay and Bow Windows:
For panoramic views, push the windows beyond the foundation of your home. Bay and bow windows achieve this flawlessly, creating a nook where you can install a window seat to take full advantage of the view.
Who says you can’t have wrap-around views without bay or bow windows? Corner windows add drama to the corners of your modern home by opening them up with glass.
Accentuate the angle of your vaulted ceiling or install an octagonal window on the staircase landing for a distinctive accent. Specialty geometric windows from Weather Shield make it possible to expand your views beyond what standard windows can achieve.
