Get the Most out of Your Picture Windows With These 4 Tips

If you have a gorgeous outdoor view you want to show off, investing in picture windows for your home is a smart solution. These windows are also great for increasing natural light in your home. As we all know, natural light has many benefits, including improving health and reducing your reliance on artificial lighting. 

Picture Windows

Today, we provide four tips on how you can get the most out of your picture windows.

1. Frame Attractive Views

Picture windows are the top choice for homeowners who want to show off their attractive landscaping or outdoor view. With no grilles, you can enjoy a beautiful, unobstructed view of Mother Nature. To maximize your picture windows, consider black as the color of the interior trim. It is a catchy color that draws the eye of the viewer toward the view outdoors. With this, you also pull the attention away from less appealing areas of your home. 

2. Let More Natural Light In

Thanks to their unobstructed view, picture windows can increase the natural light in your home. This can help you lower your energy expenses, improve the colors within your home, and boost curb appeal! Large picture windows are especially beneficial and allow more light inside. At Renewal by Andersen® of Houston, our replacement windows are equipped with the composite material Fibrex®, which is known to easily support the weight of the heavy glass required for large picture windows. In addition, our windows are also custom-made and -sized to ensure you let in as much light as possible. 

3. Combine With Other Styles

One of the best ways to use your picture windows is by combining them with other window styles. This way, you make them more functional and beautiful while also adding more character to your interior spaces. To increase ventilation and natural light, for instance, you may consider casement windows on both sides of a picture window. Or perhaps, you want to top your picture windows with uniquely shaped transoms to open up your space and add more drama to your interior design. Discuss with your window contractor the different window combinations to consider for your living spaces.

4. Consider Empty Wall Spaces

If you’re not sure what to do with that empty wall space in your ceiling, your window contractor may recommend adding picture windows to it. Since there will be no need to open any windows at this height, picture windows are the best solution to brighten up your space and enhance the beauty of your home. If you want to customize the appeal of this design to the interior and exterior of your home, try using different sizes of picture windows.
