5 Different Styles Of Windows For Your Home

If you need to change out the windows in your home, you don't have to stick to the style that you had previously. Here are five different styles of windows that may work for your home.

#1 Geometric Window

If you want to do something different and make a statement with your window, a geometric window may be the way to go. There are lots of different shapes of unique geometric windows, including trapezoid, triangular and octagon windows. Many of these window don't open up, meaning you can't get a breeze from these windows, just a good view. This type of window are great if you need light but not ventilation in one area.

#2 Bow Window

Second, another option is a bow window. Bow windows are also often called bay windows. These types of windows require that the structure of your home be changed a little bit. They are usually made out of three different windows that together create a little nook or cranny in your house, where you can put a window seat or "bay window". These types of windows and seats often make great reading corners as well places to hang out in your house. They let in a lot of light and can also let in air as well, depending on the specific bow window you have installed.

#3 Picture Window

If you just want to enjoy the great view of your backyard or other feature, a picture window can be a great way to go. Picture windows are often rather large and over-sized compared to other windows and don't open up. They are designed just to give you a great view of the outside. Picture windows often have smaller windows on the side of them that open up for ventilation purposes.

#4 Sliding Window

If you want to be able to open and close the window, you are going to want to go with a sliding window. You can install a sliding window that opens left to right, or you can install a double-hung window that you can open up and down, on both sides, with the screen and without the screen. These are great if your priority is just a functional window that you can open up and down and get some nice air into your house when you need it.

#5 Garden Window

Finally, if you want a window that pops out a little bit, but not as much as a bay window, a garden window can be a great option. A garden window extends from your house a little bit, allowing you a nice place to put house plants so they get the sunshine they need to grow. Garden windows are generally also designed to open and close, so you can get air and ventilation as well.

Don't think of window replacement as a choir, instead think of it as an opportunity to redefine your space. Think about how the window will affect your space, and use that to guide your choice of what type of replacement window you want.
