Top 4 Window Styles for Better Home Aesthetics

Few home improvements come close to the aesthetic benefits offered by buying replacement windows, especially when you choose custom replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen®. The right window style, customized the right way, can dramatically improve your home’s aesthetics. Here are some of our recommended window styles:

Top 4 Window Styles for Better Home Aesthetics

1. Bay windows

Bay windows, and their rounded cousin bow windows, create a protrusion that adds visual as well as physical volume without taking up additional floor area. This makes bay windows the ideal window style for curb-facing windows, as they can make your home look bigger from the outside. The protruding bay space can also be used as a window seat, hidden storage, or display space. Bay windows also allow a 180-degree view, perfect for enjoying a beautiful, panoramic view.

2. Picture windows

Picture windows are another window style ideal for capturing a view. As they have no sashes, they allow several square inches more glass to the frame area, maximizing your view and letting ample amounts of natural light into your home. This also makes picture windows the most energy-efficient window style there is; thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you can enjoy as much natural light as you want without worrying about heat from the sun, or the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays.

3. Sliding windows

Sliding windows let you capture a view while allowing efficient ventilation. Unlike other window styles, sliding windows have bottom tracks that carry the weight of the sashes. Renewal by Andersen sliding windows feature Andersen-designed tracks that ensure reliably smooth operation that feels like the windows are gliding on air. The tracks are also exceptionally durable, which lets you choose bigger window sizes without compromising their long-term performance.

4. Custom windows

Custom windows are fixed windows, just like picture windows, but instead of the traditional four-sided window style, custom windows can be just about any shape you want, or whichever fits the wall opening you already have. Renewal by Andersen offers custom window shapes that may just be that missing element your home needs. Whether your design calls for a porthole-style circular window, a star-shaped clerestory window, or a triangular window that complements a bay window, we can build it.
