Upgrade To These Window Styles to Bring In the Light
You want to add light to your room without having to run up your electric bill. Fortunately, the right replacement windows can do this easily, in an energy efficient way that also allows you to soak up the benefits of natural sunlight. But some window styles let in more light than others. What window styles will you choose for your window replacement project? Here are a few favorites:
Bay and Bow Windows
When it comes to expansive views, you can’t beat bay and bow windows. These windows have three or five panes of glass and form a large, convex shape so they’re also perfect for rooms that need to appear larger. They have a stately look to them that suits classic home design perfectly and offers extended outdoor views if you have a beautiful yard that you’re proud of. And of course, the more views they let in, the more sunlight floods your home.
Slider windows are built much like a smaller version of sliding glass patio doors. They’re horizontal in shape, often long, with a sliding sash that moves from one side of the window to the other. These windows can often be found in kitchens, which frequently need more natural light, or bedrooms and home offices. They’re sleek and flat, suiting the light, airy nature of contemporary architectural styles perfectly.
Casement windows are becoming more and more popular. These are tall, slim and stylish windows that open at the side through nature of a hand crank at the bottom of the window frame. They’re not only stunning, both classy and modern in appearance, but allow light to stream into living rooms, bedrooms, and any other room where you might install a casement window replacement. These windows look great in any style of architecture.
Awning windows are smaller and horizontal, but function somewhat like casement windows, opening out from the bottom instead of the side. These windows are sometimes placed high on the wall of living rooms so that sunlight filters through them and down into the room, quite literally flooding the room with light. This process is called “daylighting” and it’s popular in both modern and classic home styles, but particularly modern.
