The 3 Best Window Styles for Your Living Room

Most families spend a considerable amount of time in their living room, and windows can dramatically affect the look and feel of this space. However, some homeowners find it hard to believe that the right windows can completely transform this part of the home. Each window style brings something different to the table; here’s what we recommend.


1. Picture windows

There’s no better way to capture picture-perfect scenery than with a picture window. This type of window unit has no moveable sash, giving you an unobstructed view of the outdoors. Many models have narrower frames, which look very sleek within contemporary interiors.

With picture windows, it’s especially important to opt for glass packages with advanced coatings. Renewal by Andersen®, the leader in replacement window innovations, specializes in energy-efficient glass options. High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass features multiple layers of spectrally selective coatings, which can block up to 84% of the sun’s UV rays that fade interiors. They also have superior insulating properties that keep unwanted heat out, so you will be comfortable inside your home even on hot days.

2. Bay windows

Adding a bay window can have a huge impact on a room. For one, bay windows create architectural depth and dimension. This means they’re ideal for making a cramped living room appear more spacious. Many homeowners install bay windows for the added floor space, which can be easily turned into a sitting, reading or gaming nook.

Double-hung windows in Sacramento can be included in many bay units, but other window types such as picture, casements or a combination of these may be also be used.

3. Specialty windows

No interior detail is as eye-catching as large and uniquely-shaped windows. Renewal by Andersen makes specialty windows in many shapes, colors and sizes. You can also get them with different grille patterns. Specialty windows are beautiful on their own, but they also look great when combined with other window styles. A Circle Top™ window, for example, can be combined with casements for maximum ventilation.
