Even as hot as it is outside, you probably wish you could spend more time outside. That’s not always possible when you’re overseeing multiple home improvement projects at once. But when you put your trust in Capital Remodeling, you know that the replacement windows you ordered will exceed your expectations. Here are some ideas for what you can do with picture windows.
Configuring Them with Other Windows
One idea is to pair your picture windows with different types of windows alongside them. For this to work, you will need the right openings, which is another reason to consult with the experts at Capital Remodeling. We can work with the openings you already have, but we might not be able to create any new openings. So if replacing your old picture windows is your objective, then you’re in luck.
Experiment with the design before you make a decision. One of the most popular design choices is to have the picture window flanked by two other windows. It’s your choice whether those other windows are casement, double-hung, sliding, or awning models. Double-hung windows are especially popular because they can improve the ventilation inside the house. Combining a picture window with a bay window can also help boost your home’s look and enhance the view that you’ve worked so hard on.
Finding the Right Room
The next step is to determine which room you would like the picture window to go into once you find the right pane. Ultimately, it comes down to the layout of your home, which view you would like to focus on, and what windows you already have. Even so, there are some rooms where adding a picture window makes sense, such as in the kitchen. Other alternatives include the living room and the master bedroom. In these rooms, you can encourage more natural light to come in, allowing you to rely less on indoor lights that can drive up your summer energy bill.
Choosing the Right Size
Once that is done, you must select the right size of the window. For a pairing with single or double-hung windows, then select a size that measures 28-36 inches wide and 52-74 inches tall. Likewise, for casements and awnings, you will want 20×24 or 24×48. The largest picture windows could be 9 feet wide by 8 feet tall!
