Your bedroom is often the first room you see in the morning and the last one you see at night. It’s one of the most important rooms in any home, and, as such, homeowners spend a great deal of time and effort to personalize it to fit their tastes. One way to maximize the appeal and environment of your bedroom is by choosing the right window installation. Windows can easily define a space, and there are many important pointers to consider when choosing replacement windows for a bedroom.
Unfortunately, finding good window styles for bedrooms is one of the most challenging parts of any home remodeling project. Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Classic double-hung and casement windows are the most popular choice for use in a bedroom. These windows offer excellent light and airy features during the day and can easily be closed for privacy during the night. In some areas, bedroom windows are required to be of a certain size to double as an egress point during emergencies. Casement and double-hung windows fill these requirements adequately.
Bay and Bow Windows
It’s not unusual to create a cozy nook for a relaxing afternoon in a bedroom. Bay windows can provide any room with a little bit of extra floor space that can be transformed to fit any use. Consider placing a window-side cushioned bench for sitting or, perhaps, some floor-level shelving to store books and other knick-knacks.
Avoid Picture Windows
You can choose almost any style of energy-efficient windows to use in your bedroom, that is, except for one: picture windows. This style offers excellent views of the outdoors; however, they are inoperable. This means they cannot be opened or shut, making them a poor choice for a bedroom.
