Skinny windows, for some homeowners, are a design nightmare. They are often just too thin to work with, and the fact that they aren’t as wide as your standard windows means they don’t exactly let in as much light or views in as they should. Renewal by Andersen® of Columbus lists simple ways to make the most out of your skinny windows.
Group Your Skinny Windows
The simplest way to address your skinny windows’s lack of width is to group them with other windows. Grouping your replacement skinny windows benefits both your exterior and interior. For the former, the exterior wall will have that repetition of windows, while for the latter, a trio of skinny windows grouped together can quickly become the focal point of the room itself. It would even make a good “anchor” for a sitting or rest area.
Use Them to Frame the Views
Skinny windows are great at framing certain or specific views from the outside without letting all of the exterior views in. If there’s a certain overlook you want to frame as part of your interior aesthetics, we recommend a skinny picture window. You don’t need to open or close it since its main purpose is to simply frame the view you want to see.
Skinny Windows and Bathrooms
Skinny windows seem to be made for bathrooms. They let in ample amounts of natural daylight without sacrificing your privacy. Installing a solitary skinny window as part of a replacement window project is enough to improve the lighting and comfort of your bathroom.
