A Look at the Different Types of Windows

A Look at the Different Types of Windows

You might know what a bay window is, but how often have you heard anyone talk about bow windows?

Finding the right replacement window can feel like an uphill struggle. Many different decisions demand your attention, and all of them affect the process of how soon you can get a new window installed in your home. Make way for the new arrival by ensuring that the original opening is kept clear. Then, take some time to do your research. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask even seemingly silly questions! The team at Capital Remodeling is here to help you with whatever you may need! 


First up on the list is the picture window. These windows can help you enjoy your view more often, no matter where you are standing in your home. Plus, they can become the part of the room that draws the eye of guests and are fixed points in your wall – thus, they are incredibly energy-efficient. 

Bay and Bow 

You might know what a bay window is, but how often have you heard anyone talk about bow windows? These two types of windows can be considered a pair, but this isn’t always the case. Bay windows allow you to carve out a reading nook or a window seat to watch the snow falling while you keep a cup of hot cocoa and a blanket in handy reach. Bow windows also help boost the curb appeal of your house. Besides, they exhibit a gentle curve that lets them wrap around the exterior corners of your home!


Sometimes, double-hung windows won’t work for where they are.  As splendid as they are, they might not be able to let in all of the light that you want them to, especially with night falling so early in the afternoon during November and December. That’s why you should consider getting a sliding window installed instead! Try placing one over a sink or along a staircase. They are compact, so space concerns aren’t as much of an issue, and they’re easy enough for everyone to open!


Years ago, awning windows were a popular home design choice. Though they fell out of favor for a while, they are starting to make a comeback. They have a hinge at the top of the window and are crank-operated so you can let some fresh air in even when it is raining outside. 


Even though your garden goes dormant in the winter, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy looking at your backyard. Garden windows let you do that without having to trudge outside in muddy conditions after it has been precipitating. By incorporating a garden window, you can have a new place to cultivate herbs and other smaller plants. The light coming in through the garden windows that replace older models can also help your home feel bigger than it is genuinely is.
