One of the advantages of hiring a window company like Renewal by Andersen® that builds custom windows is that you have the flexibility to choose any combination of window styles. If you’re considering mixing up styles for your remodeling project, consider the following combinations that are proven to work well together.
Picture and Specialty Windows
Picture windows are excellent for capturing views and allowing lots of natural light in, so this makes them great by themselves. Combining picture windows with specialty windows, which are basically fixed windows with custom shapes, however, opens up many design possibilities. Perhaps, you want a nice rounded top to match your home’s curves; a half-circle specialty window on top of a regular picture window can create a softer curved feel.
If you have a high-peaked ceiling, consider matching the peak with triangular specialty windows. Done correctly, you can have a window wall that follows the roofline. If you’re worried the increased sunlight might make your indoors too hot or fade your fabrics, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass can block unwanted heat and ultraviolet (UV )rays, letting you enjoy as much natural light as you want.
Casement and Picture Windows
What if you want to capture a nice view, but still want the benefits that an operable window brings, such as much-needed ventilation? While you can technically pair a picture window with any operable window style, casement windows look best. They can match the uninterrupted glass panels that picture windows have and can provide maximum ventilation when opened.
You might be wondering why we didn’t pair bay windows with another window style; this is simply because bay windows are combination windows in themselves. A typical bay window is composed of three or four window styles. A popular combination features one fixed window in the middle for maximum viewing with two operable windows like double hung or casement windows at the sides for ventilation. However, you can mix it up with two double hung windows in the middle and fixed ones at the sides, or perhaps have additional fixed windows cover the top as in garden windows.
