Three Great Window Styles You Might Consider for Your Home April 29, 2017 When you’re looking for replacement windows for your Toronto area home you will see a number of options available to you. Take this as an opportunity to completely transform the look and feel of any room in your house. For example, if you have simple double hung windows in your family room, but those windows are overlooking the backyard that you’ve been investing a great deal of time and energy in through the years, why not capitalize on an incredible view? Here are three great window styles you might want to consider for your home when it comes time to replace your old, broken down, outdated windows. 1. Picture windows. Picture windows were highly popular during the 1960s and 70s, but they lost favor in subsequent decades. However, today they are making a strong comeback, and for good reason. Picture windows provide you an opportunity to frame a view that is beyond the room in your house. For example, you may have a living room that overlooks the garden with incredibly gorgeous flowers throughout much of the spring and summer season. If you have two simple double hung windows side-by-side, that’s not taking advantage of that view. Picture windows can do that for you. 2. Bay and bow windows. Similar to picture windows, bay and bow windows offer the illusion of more space in any room in your house. For a bedroom, for example, especially a small bedroom, putting in a bay or bow window gives you the illusion of more space. It also provides an extra shelf where you can place plants, mementos, picture frames, and more. Picture and bay and bow windows provide more natural light to get into your home, which can inspire more home living. 3. Casement windows. Many people think casement windows are just for basements, but larger casement windows that open alongside can be great for any living room in your house. You can install a series of casement window side-by-side and completely open up the entire living space.
