Window Styles That Work Well TogetherFebruary 25, 2021
Picture windows are great for expanding your view and adding architectural detail to your home. Pairing them with other window styles is even more effective because it provides you with increased ventilation and visual interest. Here are some popular window pairings that work well together.
Picture Window With Casements
Picture windows are simple and classic in style, with a single fixed square or rectangular pane of glass that doesn’t open. Picture windows alone could seem a little basic, but when combined with flanking casement windows to highlight a gorgeous outdoor view, your picture window will really shine. Casement windows are a great choice because they open smoothly outward with a simple crank at an angle that allows them to catch the breeze and provide plenty of ventilation. In addition, they let in more light and are the most energy-efficient of the ventilating window styles.
Picture Window With Double-Hung Windows
If you want a more traditional look, try pairing a picture window with a double-hung window on either side, a style that’s sometimes referred to as a Chicago window. Though these pairings were first used for commercial buildings, they can easily be incorporated into any style of residential home. Double-hung windows provide fresh air and complement the simple design of picture windows.
