Window Replacement Wisdom: How to Select the Right Style for Your Home

When it’s time to upgrade your old and inefficient windows, you’ll have plenty of options as you search for replacement windows that will enhance your home’s energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal. One important choice you’ll have to make involves window styles, as different styles will be a better fit for different rooms in your home. Below, we will discuss the most popular window styles available today and provide insight about each to help simplify your decision process.

Choosing the Perfect Window Style

Here are some of the styles you’ll select from as you upgrade the windows in your home:


Ideal Areas: Living Rooms, Bedrooms


Double-hung windows are a timeless choice, suitable for various home styles. Thanks to their two vertically sliding sashes, they provide excellent ventilation control and they’re easy to clean. Their classic design complements both traditional and modern interiors, making them a versatile and popular choice.


Ideal Areas: Kitchens, Bathrooms


Casement windows are hinged on one side and open outward, so they are ideal for areas where unobstructed views and maximum ventilation are priorities. They are commonly installed in kitchens and bathrooms, offering a practical solution for spaces that require efficient airflow and natural light.


Ideal Areas: Patios, Decks


Sliding windows effortlessly glide open, making them an excellent choice for spaces with limited exterior clearance. They are well-suited for areas leading to patios or decks, as they provide seamless access to outdoor spaces while maintaining a sleek and modern aesthetic.

Picture Windows

Ideal Areas: Foyers, Formal Spaces


Picture windows are fixed and offer expansive views while allowing abundant natural light to flood into your home. They are an elegant addition to foyers and formal spaces and can create a focal point that enhances the overall aesthetic of these areas.

Awning Windows

Ideal Areas: Basements, Bathrooms


Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward to create a sheltered space even during light rain. This makes them a practical choice for basements and bathrooms, as they allow for ventilation while maintaining privacy.

Bay Windows

Ideal Areas: Living Rooms, Master Bedrooms


Bay windows add architectural interest and create additional space within a room. They provide panoramic views, increased natural light, and a charming alcove.

Bow Windows

Ideal Areas: Dining Areas, Home Offices


Similar to bay windows, bow windows feature a curved design that creates a gentle arch.

Specialty Shape Windows

Ideal Areas: Architectural Features, Custom Spaces


Specialty shape windows come in various unique designs, allowing homeowners to add custom touches to their homes. These windows are perfect for accentuating architectural features or creating custom spaces that demand a distinct and personalized touch.
