Picture Windows: Attractive Windows for Your Home

Picture windows feature are one of the many styles available for your replacement windows. Most people see them as the generic window, unaware that their simple design is all for better aesthetics for your home, and a great view of the outdoors, as well as improved indoor daylighting.

In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois shares the benefits of installing a picture window in your home.

Better Views

Picture windows are mostly glass, which means you get maximum views from the outdoors. These windows embody the phrase, “a room with a view.” On top of letting in more of the outdoors inside, picture windows give you maximum daylighting. Even a small picture window will allow more light than your usual double-hung window because it has a larger glass area.

Picture Windows Increase Room Space

Larger windows have an interesting effect on room space, and picture windows do it best. The larger the window’s glass area, the bigger the room feels – essentially increasing the visible space. This is due to the lighting and wider views you get from the windows themselves.

Picture windows are the best choice for small and stuffy rooms as they add some much needed visual space. Their presence makes a small room less cramped and more comfortable, which is always a great bonus. Small kitchens, bathrooms and small bedrooms are all places where the picture window shines.

What Makes Our Picture Windows Better

The picture window’s larger glass area means it’s more susceptible to heat and UV light, especially during the summer months. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois fixes this problem by using High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass for all of our picture windows. Not only does it increase the energy efficiency of your windows and the room, but it also protects you from harmful UV light.

"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!"
