The Best in Picture Windows
Picture windows carry an appropriate name, because what they do is turn your outdoor view into a picture. These windows are unique in that they don’t actually open, which means they act like a frame around your scenery. Because of this, picture windows are considered incredibly energy efficient; there’s no chance of your indoor air escaping or your outdoor air filtering inside.
In addition picture windows are a great way to not only add natural light to your area, but also add an element of design. While some homeowners choose to use them alone, others use them in conjunction with other window styles that open to provide a useful contrast. One good example of this is a bay window, which tends to feature a picture window in the center and two smaller casement windows on either side.
Where to Use Them
Because picture windows don’t open, they can be used virtually anywhere. Many homeowners choose to use them in the hard-to-reach areas of great rooms, basements, or kitchens, but they’re also commonly used in high-traffic rooms such as living rooms or dining rooms. Where you use them depends on what you’re trying to achieve.
