HOME DEPOT HOME WINDOWS
If you’re in the market for new home windows, the process can be very exciting. In the window world, there are countless different window styles, sizes, shapes, and colors for you to pick from. Each window type can change the look of your home and help you make the statement you want. Some of the most popular window styles include:
Bow and bay windows not only give your room more natural light, but they also can serve as the focal point of the room. These windows were a very popular part of both Medieval and Victorian architecture, so incorporating a bow or bay window in your home can give it a touch of drama.
Great for: Dining rooms, Living rooms, Sitting rooms
If natural light and ventilation is what you’re looking for in a window, casement is the perfect choice. Perhaps the most versatile window, casement windows can add a modern element to nearly any room. They’re also great when several are installed side-by-side to create an “open air” home.
Great for: Living rooms, Bedrooms, Dining rooms
Single-hung and double-hung windows are the most popular types of windows for the home. They’re not only affordable, but they’re easy to install, easy to maintain, and can be used in any room of the home. They also offer good ventilation (double-hung offers more than single-hung) and save space by opening vertically.
Great for: Bathrooms, Kitchens, Bedrooms
Awning windows are usually horizontal and open upward, creating an awning. This look is reminiscent of beach and lake homes and can give your room that “waterfront” characteristic. For an even larger window and one with ultimate functionality, you can pair an awning window with another window style (such as picture, casement, or single-hung).
Great for: Kitchens, Bathrooms, Sunrooms
The majority of windows are square or rectangular, so if you want to make a design statement, incorporate a round-top window. These windows can be bought as a single window or as a topper for another window and because of their geometric form, they can add a modern flair and touch of drama to nearly any room.
Great for: Rooms with high ceilings, Bedrooms, Front doors
