Deciding on the right window for your home is about balancing aesthetics and functionality. The options for shape, position, material, and glazing options are almost limitless. There are just ten of the top styles for replacement windows in Holmes Beach, FL:
- Picture Windows
These stationary windows come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. They are simple and affordable. Larger expanses of glass can really open up a room and give you a great view of the outdoors but can compromise privacy and have the potential for unwanted heat gains. Most homeowners choose to install picture windows in more prominent places in their home, like living rooms and sitting areas to get in more daylight and keep the elements out.
- Single Hung Windows
Also known as sash windows, these operate by sliding one sash up and down over another sash that does not move. These windows are common in homes with traditional style. They are good for both light and ventilation, but not so much for a grand view.
- Double Hung Windows
These are exactly like single hung windows, only both of the sashes slide up and down. You can still only open half of the window, but you can open them at both the top and bottom. This creates natural airflow by pulling cooler air in through the bottom and pushing warm, stale air out the top.
- Sliding Windows
Another traditional window style, sliding windows operate with one sash moving left and right over another sash. These are a popular window because there is very little that can go wrong. They are easy to operate and do not require a lot of maintenance.
- Casement Windows
These windows hinge on one side and open outward. Usually, they operate on a hand crank, which makes them ideal for hard to reach areas like behind the couch. Homeowners like casement windows because they are great for ventilation.
- Awning Windows
These windows work much like casements, except the hinges are at the top. When the window opens the sash creates an awning over the opening so you can keep the windows open, even when it is remaining.
- Bay Windows
These windows feature three different sashes installed as a single unit. Usually bay windows feature a picture window flanked by smaller operable windows. Bay windows project outside, so you get some extra square footage when you choose to have these windows installed.
- Bow Windows
Bow windows have four or more sashes arranged as one unit. They are set on a curve. These also project outside like bay windows and give you some additional square footage. And while they are great for more daylight and catching sideling breezes, they can be tricky to dress.
- Garden Windows
These windows have a glass front, sides, and roof. And, as the name suggests, they usually have shelves meant to hold potted plants. They have a unique, decorative style and can bring a piece of the outdoors inside.
