Windows also help define the style of your house, whether it is vintage or contemporary. You can customize any window to match your varying tastes and requirements. When looking for windows, consider the part of the house where you are going to install them and the functions you need.

Here are five types of windows you can use for the different areas of your home:

1. Double-Hung Windows

These windows have two sashes in a single frame. The design allows you to slide the sash upward or downward for sufficient ventilation. Many people often put double-hung windows adjacent to decks, walkways, and patios for their decorative look and function. Aside from their ornate look, they are also perfect for the kitchen, as you can open them easily to remove smell and smoke from cooking. You can open them from the top or bottom.

2. Bay & Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are perfect for your living area and bedroom. As they extend out from the exterior of your house, you are able to maximize your living spaces. You do not just get a stylish window but also a practical one, especially if you need more space in your room.

3. Casement Windows

Hinged on the left or right side, these windows open outward. They provide maximum passage of light and air. St. Charles MO casement windows are typically suitable for bathrooms and walk-in closets for the exceptional light and ventilation they provide.

4. Picture Window

A picture window is a huge stationary window that lets in the maximum amount of light and provides an extensive view of the outdoors. It is ideal for high-ceiling spaces, and reflecting staircases. You can also use it for the different floors of your house.

5. Stationary Windows

As these windows do not open, many people only use them for decorative purposes. Others install stationary windows simply to allow more light into the room. You can have these windows customized in any angle or shape. Often found in contemporary-style houses, stationary windows are used in a room together with operating types of windows, such as casement, single-, and double-hung windows.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
