Building Tip #44: Windows, Which Would Work Best for You?

Building Tip #44: Windows, Which Would Work Best for You?

Window designs have evolved throughout history, with each different style providing buildings with a unique look and feel, but did you know that they also perform different functions and provide unique benefits. If you're looking to update the windows in your home and are not sure which window design would work best for you, read on for five designs and their functions. 

Picture Windows 
Picture is the perfect way to describe this window design as the window doesn't open up but gives homeowners a picture perfect view of outside. This type of window style is usually used in rooms where airflow isn't necessarily important and natural light is appreciated. These windows are often used in homes that have access to spectacular views and set high into walls to provide exceptional lighting. 

Bay Windows
The bay window is an architect's favourite tool to add extra light into a room and intriguing dimensions to a flat wall. The charming cottage design is often used in kitchens, giving additional space for a breakfast nook, or in family rooms where they are used to create additional seating. 

Single and Double Hung Windows
Both the single and double hung window are designed with one purpose in mind which is space efficiency. Ideal for cooler weather where air flow is not essential to living comfortable conditions and areas close to walkways and decks. Single and double hung windows are easy to clean, repair, and maintain making them a favourite in homes with younger children. 

Jalousie Windows
This jalousie window design was created with functionality in mind instead of aesthetic appeal. It is an inexpensive window solution made up of multiple glass slats fitted into metal clips which open and close in unison. Designed for the warmer regions, the jalousie window provides terrific airflow and above average window security. The design is one which does not close completely, making it a favourite for sheds, garages, and home based workshops. 

Casement Windows
One of the most popular window design, casement windows open outward on a pivot motion. The simple style is seen in many homes as they allow for excellent airflow and natural light to enter into a room almost uninhibited. These windows are an energy efficient option as when they close, they create a tight seal trapping warm air inside the home. 

Deciding on the right window style for your new home or home renovations project can be slightly daunting when you discover the myriad of options available to you, but with a little knowledge and knowing exactly what you're looking for, finding your perfect window design can be done.
