Most window companies will tell you that picture windows are always a great choice, no matter the architectural style of your home. However, if you do not make the most of them, you could be missing out on what could very well be a gorgeous feature of your home.
So, what are the best ways to use your picture windows so you make the most of them?
Picture windows already look great on their own. But if you want to add more natural lighting and ventilation to the room, you can try combining a picture window with a different type of window. For example, two casement windows would look great on both sides of your picture window. You can also opt for awning or double-hung windows, among others.
Let the Light Inside
If a room in your home has a stunning view of the outdoors, using small windows wouldn’t be ideal. Consult your window contractor to see if it’s possible for you to have a train of picture windows to create a window wall. This way, you can let in as much light as you want, and you’ll be able to enjoy that gorgeous view outside without any obstruction.
Crown Your Windows
You can add more charm to your picture windows by topping them with unique transoms. Not only will they open up your space more, but they will also enhance its look. There are a number of shapes and styles of transoms that you can choose one so there’s surely something that will match your home’s aesthetics.
