In home design, nothing makes a better decoration than nature. Introducing it to your home is an excellent way to add life to your interior. If your rooms lack a focal point, trading solid, blank walls for large expanses of glass can give your decor its missing element. Moreover, generous use of glass would extend the gaze and make your space seem larger than it is.
To bring the outdoors in, Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln recommends these units for your window replacement project:
The picture window’s primary purpose is to frame panoramas. Abundant daylighting is just a bonus. Its ability to capture the view improves the more its size increases and the less grilles it has. But, since it doesn’t open or close, make sure to combine with operating units to increase natural ventilation and prevent moisture buildup.
2. Bay and Bow
Bay and bow units are a favorite in window replacement projects, not just because of their attractive shape, but also because of their expansive glass. Consisting of three or more windows, they would naturally photograph panoramic scenes of the outside world. The bow portion may be typically larger the bay, but both of these units has enough glass to establish a seamless indoor-outdoor connection.
Due to their horizontal sliding operation, the width of gliding windows is generally greater than their height. These units are perfect for rooms with short walls and allow for views of the surrounding landscape without using up all of the space.
Want to add more glass to ordinary replacement windows? Crown them with transom units. Regardless of their size, these can magically blur the lines between your indoor and outdoor areas. To spice things up, choose pentagonal transom windows. Rectangular and arched units look nice, but those peaked ones are a refreshing sight.
