4 Window Styles That Add Functional AestheticsSeptember 14, 2018
With so many styles of replacement windows available, it can be tricky to find the right one for your home. The key is to choose a style that provides the functionality you need along with the aesthetic you desire.
In this post, we share four window styles that add functional aesthetics to your home.
1. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are the most versatile in terms of style as they can complement the look of both modern and traditional homes. In terms of function, double-hung windows are also at the top of the list as they provide excellent ventilation and energy efficiency. You can make your home cooler or warmer by opening the bottom and top sash, respectively.
2. Picture Windows
The picture window is easily identifiable by being the only window that doesn’t open. The most obvious benefit of the picture window is the beautiful panoramic view it offers, but it also has functional advantages, such as filling your living space with natural light. More daylight, courtesy of the larger glass area, can have a positive effect on your mood and even sleep patterns, while also making your living space appear larger than it really is.
3. Sliding Windows
Sliding windows are essentially a more functional version of the picture window. These windows have large, uninterrupted glass areas that you can slide open to let more air in. In terms of ventilation, the sliding window is a great choice for more modern homes.
4. Casement Windows
Casement windows have a solid, all-round design that can fit almost any home. Casements tend to have a slightly larger glass area than the double-hung style, however. They offer an excellent mix of aesthetics and function. In sum, the casement is an attractive window style that can blend in with different architectural styles, while providing great daylighting and ventilation, too.
