There’s technically no right or wrong windows for each room of your house. That’s the beauty of owning your home—you get to make it your own! However, many people do prefer to make upgrades according to best practices and timeless trends. So, if you’re preparing for a replacement project and are truly stuck on what windows you should pick, there are certain styles that work better in different parts of the home. Here, it’s broken down room by room:
If there’s a place that serves as the centerpiece of your home, it’s probably the living room. This is the space where many families have movie marathons, play board games, and entertain guests. With it being such a grand room in your home, you should install a large window like a picture, bay, or bow window. Picture windows features one large fixed pane of glass, while bay and bow windows are projection-style and composed of multiple windows. All of these options can provide ample lighting for your living area and be the main focal point.
In many kitchens, there’s a window located above the sink—this can make it a tad challenging to reach. Because of this, you should install a window style that boasts simple operation and offers plenty of ventilation: a sliding window. Or, if you’re a homeowner who enjoys growing your own herbs, your kitchen isn’t complete without a garden window. This window extends beyond your home and features three glass walls, allowing optimum sunlight for small plants to grow.
Like most people, you probably enjoy natural light filling your bedroom but also want a fair amount of privacy. To enjoy the best of both worlds, an average-sized window style like double-hung or casement is a safe bet. Plus, both are easy to operate so you can effortlessly open or close them even in the dark of the night.
Privacy is most needed in the bathroom, so choosing a smaller window style like awning or hopper is the way to go. These styles are usually smaller in size and installed higher up on the wall of a room, ensuring no prying eyes can see inside. And since bathrooms can get quite steamy, these windows are also excellent for ventilation.
