Picture windows provide a great home-improvement option if you’re seeking expansive views. Unlike other replacement windows, picture windows are larger in size and frequently used in homes with high or vaulted ceilings. Their appearance makes any home’s exterior look grand and provides magnificent, unobstructed views of the outdoors for the homeowner.
Picture windows are not used simply for display purposes, however. They also offer the following advantages, which improve your indoor comfort and bottom line:
Picture windows are fixed, which means they don’t open or close. They won't help with ventilation, but this feature makes them more cost-effective to install when compared to other window types of the same size. Because picture windows feature no moving parts, they cost less to manufacture.
For homeowners who love picture windows but desire some ventilation, picture windows can be combined with other types of windows to give them the ability to better ventilate your property. A few types of windows that will complement your picture windows include:
Because of their large panes of glass, picture windows capture more sunlight for your home. This is advantageous for the winter months when temperatures start dropping. By absorbing more heat, picture windows allow your indoor environment to warm up faster. This enables you to cut back on the use of your heating system and save money on your utility bills.
No matter what style, size, or shape of picture window you choose, you will definitely invite more natural light inside your property with these types of windows. More natural light also means that your indoor spaces will appear naturally bigger and brighter too.
