5 Window Ideas to Consider for Your Home Remodeling Project

Windows may seem nothing more than standard requirements for your property, but they do more than just allow natural light to enter your home. They can also let you enjoy the views of your neighborhood, enhance curb appeal, and keep your space well-ventilated. Therefore, if you have a home remodeling project, here are some ideas you can consider:

1. Bow and bay windows

If you are looking for ideal windows for your living room, master bedroom, or dining room, consider bow and bay windows. Bow windows have a series of windows joined at equal angles to create a curved arch, while bay windows have three combined windows of varying widths that produce a more angled look. 

These windows have the power to add architectural interest to your house. They can also be placed with single-hung windows or casements to enjoy more natural light and additional ventilation. They are beautiful and functional, with seats beneath them, providing more seating in your home.

2. Double-pane windows

Double-pane windows contain two panes of glass set into frames. What makes this type of window unique is that their glass panes have a space between them that helps insulate your home, limit noise pollution, and keep cold out during winter and heat out in the summer. As a result, you can enjoy having an energy-efficient home. 

3. Vinyl colored window frames

Exterior vinyl window frames typically come in white, tan, or clay frame colors. If you opt to add more vibrant colors to your home, consider choosing other color choices for your window frames. They can blend in with the ambiance of your house and create a cohesive look or stand out against your existing siding, stucco, or trim. Therefore, choosing this type of window lets you achieve your desired look and help cut down on your expenses since vinyl is energy-efficient and requires less maintenance.

4. French doors 

Add more character and elevate your home’s overall look by replacing your current windows with French doors. Its panes characterize this type of window since they are primarily all glass. They bring in an incredible amount of natural light and let you enjoy the panoramic view outside your house. If this sounds appealing to you, see how you can incorporate them into your remodeled home.  

5. Window walls and transoms

Transoms are narrow windows used over the top of doors or other windows. They use the full height and width of your wall and bring in as much natural light to your space as possible, making them ideal if you are remodeling your kitchen and they are placed above your shelves or cabinets. This solution also works exceptionally well in bathrooms if you add them above your shower or bathtub.
