The Best Window Styles for Each Room

Posted on February 16, 2017 in Window Installation

At P.J. Fitzpatrick, window installation is one of our specialties and we’re proud to offer a wide variety of window styles for every room in your home. If you’re in the market for new windows, here are some of our suggestions for your living/family room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen: 

Living/Family Room

Before you choose a window style for your living room or family room, consider the room’s location and how much airflow you want to have. If the room gets a lot of sunlight, you may want to consider a large window like a bow or bay window to create drama and let in the natural light. If you’re looking for circulation, try double-hung windows that can be opened both on the top and the bottom. If your room has a beautiful, scenic outlook, consider installing large picture windows to put the view on display. 

Bedroom

Because your bedroom is one of the more private rooms of your home, you can skip windows that are heavy on design and instead, opt for pratical styles like single-hung, double-hung, or casement. All of these windows will give you plenty of light while also allowing airflow for warm summer nights. In addition, all of these windows can be easily fitted with curtains or drapes to ensure privacy. 

Bathroom

Ventilation is an important element when it comes to bathroom windows, so at P.J. Fitzpatrick, our window installation experts recommend double-hung windows. If you want to opt for a more privacy-prevalent bathroom, consider installing several hopper windows towards the top of your walls – these will allow more privacy while still giving you some ventilation. For added natural light, consider a sklight.

Kitchen

In the kitchen, most people place a window above the sink to open up the room and add natural light. While this is a great idea, it’s important to remember that an above-sink window should be easy to open. We recommend a casement or sliding window that is easy to operate and allows for airflow. Another popular choice among homeowners is a garden window, which lets you grow or display plants or herbs while still letting in fresh air.
