Bigger doesn’t always mean its better, however if you have a breath-taking outdoor view from your home, why not show it off with a picture window. Even if you wouldn’t consider your view mind blowing, installing a large window have a plethora of benefits such as keeping better eye on the kids, making the room feel larger and of course bringing a ton of extra natural light.
Picture Window Ideas:
Mix and Match: Even though picture windows are stationary and can’t be opened, you can still get fresh air by adding a couple of screened side windows that either slide open or are casement-type (open up and down). These will give you the sites, sounds and feel of being outside without the negatives like bugs.
Go Bold: For a more contemporary look, add wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows in a bedroom or family room. You could do this with one large window or break them up by installing a row of three floor-to-ceiling windows, which would leave some wall space. Furniture and plants go great against these types of windows.
3-D: Bay and bow windows actually jut out from your house a little, and are popular for kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms. Bay windows angle outward, while bow windows have a gentle arch.
Arches: Arched or peaked windows are perfect for rooms with tall ceilings. These types of windows actually become a focal point in the room, and add a creative element to the decor and architecture of the house.
You are also going to need to consider different types of window coverings. Luckily there are a variety of blinds, shades and curtain options. Some of these are even electronically controlled which is perfect for floor to ceiling windows where you will not be able to reach the top. Most window coverings are ready-made or be created in custom sizes for larger windows and in odd shapes.
