Take a moment to consider your summer view from inside your Long Island home. Is there one window that you would call your favorite? There’s no better way to showcase a beautiful view, whether that’s a painting, a picture, or your view of your yard, than with a simple frame. When considering replacement window styles for your homes, don’t skip over picture windows.
Alone – or in combination with other styles – fixed windows bring in abundant natural light. A rectangular replacement window with a half-circle window mulled above adds a unique interior view of the garden, harbor or backyard entertainment area.
The stationary design of inoperable windows allows homeowners to frame the natural surroundings with larger windows through narrower profiles. Maximize the view, bathe your interior spaces with beautiful sunshine and give your exterior view a new feature.
Picture windows are an excellent choice alone, and with other styles. Paired with accent windows, fixed windows enhance energy efficiency and improve the overall aesthetic in a home. Different sizes and shapes can create a dramatic look.
Combined with sliders or casements, inoperable windows become part of a beautiful and practical arrangement that allows extra ventilation to keep your indoor spaces healthy and comfortable. Create a stunning wall of glass overlooking the natural landscape.
Many people think of a picture window as a massive square. In reality, fixed windows come in more than a dozen shapes that add visual interest to any home. And, like other replacement window styles, optional grilles and a wide range of color combinations mean homeowners can create truly one-of-a-kind picture windows to showcase their favorite views from any room in the house.
A large, oversized picture window lays the foundation for stunning focal points. As part of a bay window configuration, the center picture window both frames the view and becomes the view from the curb.
For those who plan to update a home on the Island this summer with replacement windows and patio doors will find picture window combinations for almost every room. With an expanded exterior color palette and virtually unlimited finishing options for paintable/stainable interiors, homeowners can frame their views with simple, understated profiles, or make a bold, dramatic statement.
Specialty glass – patterned glass that obscures the view – is also available for those areas with a less than perfect view, and in rooms where you want to add an artistic element while enhancing privacy.
