If you’re planning a window replacement this season, make sure to cover all the bases. These include your choice of window style, which plays a huge role in how you keep a more beautiful and efficient home. While most would be content with a set of double-hung windows in one room, or a pair of casements in another, why not try a bit of mix-and-matching? Window replacement offers many opportunities to customize, after all. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, your expert in windows and patio doors, suggests trying these window style combinations:1. Casement and Picture Windows. You might want to check out this lovely blend of traditional and contemporary. If your home comes with a stunning view, you can frame it perfectly with picture windows, which features an expansive glass area. But this window style is inoperable, so you can’t actually open them to let in fresh air. This is where casements come in. You can place a pair of casements on each side of a single picture window, creating not only a cleaner, sleeker look, but superb natural ventilation, as well.
2. Bay and Double-Hung Windows. Like hinged French doors, bay windows provide an elegant and timeless look. And if you’re looking to add natural ventilation, you can add operable windows that still retain the classic appearance of your bay units. In this case, combine them with another traditional window style—double-hung. These windows are champions when it comes to improving ventilation. Open both sashes at the same time and they’ll expel warm, stale air via the top sash, and let in cooling breezes through the bottom. With them opened, you can enjoy a more comfortable living space, and at the same time, reduce air conditioning bills.
3. Bow Windows and Picture Windows. Most mistake bow windows for bay units because of their slightly similar appearance. The difference, however, is that bow windows come with four or more units, creating a curvier, half-moon shape. When paired with picture windows, they add an appealing, Victorian vibe to the structure.
