Thoughtful window design and placement emphasizes a sense of style in your whole home remodel and dramatically affects the look and feel of your space. Windows can create a deeper connection to surrounding nature by framing views and bringing natural light and circulation into your home. Here’s a look at some of today’s most popular window styles:
Floor to ceiling windows: These windows offer the advantage of abundant natural light. If your home has a beautiful view, floor to ceiling windows make the view an integral part of your home environment.
Ribbon windows: These long and narrow windows were first introduced by Modernist architect Le Corbusier as a way to bring equal distribution of light to a space. They are generally at eye level and bring graphic definition to a room.
Bay windows: Bay windows, often seen in breakfast rooms, living rooms and bedrooms, reach out into the world to bring more light and views to your space. They are composed of three windows connected at angles to each other, with a nook for a ledge or window seat.
Double-Hung windows are a traditional style with two vertical sliding sashes and can be opened from either top or bottom. Casement windows are hinged on the side and opened with a crank. French casement windows feature two windows that open outward using a crank handle.
Whatever window style you’re drawn to, it’s important to consider the original architecture of your home along with the modern technology that has improved energy saving features of windows in recent years and find the ideal balance.
