Window Style Series: Picture Windows to Frame the Scenery

Springfield is a city full of historical sites. Make the most of these scenic surroundings by getting stylish picture windows to frame them.


What are picture windows?

Picture windows in Springfield, IL, are different from other types because they only have one large glass pane. This allows them to frame any outdoor scenery without obstacles like grilles. However, because picture windows are fixed in the frame, they can’t be opened.

The good thing about this window type is that it doesn’t involve any mechanical parts. That means you don’t have to worry about any technical repair or replacement.

Where are picture windows installed?

Picture windows are recommended for homes with high ceilings because they can offer you a greater viewing area. These units will look best in any room with a picturesque outdoor view, such as the living room or study. They also work well in your kitchen or dining room.

This window design also looks good when placed by your patio door. This way, you can see what’s going on outside without having to step out of your home. If you have a small bedroom or library, installing picture windows helps create the illusion of a bigger space.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
