Each window style you choose for your home will naturally vary, depending on the tastes and circumstances of those living in it. There is, however, a general trend that usually works best with whichever room your windows are placed in. Southard Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas is proud to offer you specialty windows that give you great freedom for every room in your home.
Here are some suggestions for your living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen areas.
When choosing a window style for your living room, consider the room’s location and the level of air circulation you want to achieve. Privacy is also a factor as your family members will likely spend most of their time here. If you wish for the living room to get an abundant amount of sunlight, solarium windows best suited to let in natural light. Pivot and radius windows are also a unique way to express your home’s personality.
Placing high-quality windows in your home brings not only ventilation but daylight as well. In a high-moisture area where dampness is prevalent, single or double-hung windows are always a good option because the sashes are easy to open for abundant airflow. Installing several hopper windows or skylights are likewise popular choices as these allow for privacy without sacrificing ventilation and natural light. Homeowners even add some sort of draperies or blinds.
In the kitchen, windows are most commonly found above the sink to allow for ventilation and let in natural light. This place is a prime source to admit the breeze and filter out any strong, lingering smell from when you were cooking. While this is a good idea, any above-sink window must be easily accessible. You can use unique window styles such as a garage style or folding window to show off your kitchen. A stained glass or French window adds a sophisticated look.
Because privacy is of the utmost concern when it comes to your bedroom, it is better to choose practical replacement windows like casement, single, or double-hung windows and skip ones heavy on design or ornaments. These choices provide an abundance of natural light while also giving consistent airflow during those hot summer nights. Skylights, if placed strategically, can be an excellent source of airflow without sacrificing privacy and natural light.
