Upon first thought, picture windows might now seem that special. They’re usually just a simple rectangle or square, with a single window pane that cannot be opened. However, that simplicity is just what makes them so special. Their simplicity makes them extremely versatile, meaning they look great alone or combined with other types of windows. Since they lack visual flourishes in their design, they also put an even greater emphasis on what you’re looking at through them, bringing the outdoors inside and showcasing your outdoor surroundings when viewed from inside your home.
Combine Them With Other Styles of Window
Picture windows look great with other styles, and there are lots of options for combinations! For instance, flanking a picture window with two casement or gliding windows along each side will increase the amount of light you bring into a room and increase ventilation. Pairing a picture window with a specialty window sitting above it can drastically change the impact it has on a room and add some visual ornamentation to its design. A Mr. Rogers consultant can discuss your ideas with you and give you some feedback on might work best for a room.
Let the Sunshine In
Bringing more natural sunlight into a room can be beneficial in a multitude of ways. When you add a large picture window to a room, it can improve your home’s exterior façade and curb appeal, lower your energy bills, and enhance the colors inside your home. A room with several picture windows makes for a great sunroom, and if you’re lucky enough to have a nice view, picture windows can give you a bigger view of your surroundings. Large picture windows can even be placed together in succession to create window walls to maximize glass space to provide a beautiful view of your outdoor surroundings.
Upward and Onward
Do you have a home with high vaulted ceilings? If so, make use of the empty wall space near the ceiling and add some picture windows! Since windows this high won’t need to be opened, picture windows are a suitable style. Different sizes can be combined to add some visual flair, and your new picture windows are sure to open up the space and bring a lot of natural sunlight in.
