Types of Residential Windows
By johncal Jun 17, 2019

When the time comes for replacement windows Seattle, WA, you’ll have to think about the kind that works for your property. What is the aesthetic that you’re hoping for? There are as many types of windows as there are homes to display them. Adding a new window to your home can make it more valuable.  
Double-Hung Window 
With a double-hung window, you can open it from the top or the bottom. The frames slide up and down rather than in or out. It’s a popular style for your kitchen. The only difference that a single-hung window has is that the top doesn’t open.  
Awning Window  
Awning windows are a fantastic way to enjoy nice weather. The window is hinged on the top so it can be pushed forward and backward, allowing air to stream inside. These are common in living rooms and kitchens.  
Picture Window  
A picture window is all about the show. It’s very large and placed in a prime location. Your guests will notice a picture window the moment that they enter the room. To do it with the greatest effect, install your picture window in a place that affords an amazing view.  
Picture windows paired with great drapes or blinds look even more striking.  
Transom Window 
Transom windows give you flexibility. They can be stationary or they can open. They’re designed to fit above doors and other windows so they can allow more light to enter.  
Slider Window  
If at least one of the window panels can slide left or right, it’s a slider window. It’s similar to the type of glass doors often used for the backyard. Slider windows are often installed in modern homes because it’s such a unique design.  
Oriel Window  
These lovely windows are mostly used in situations where you want increased elegance. They’re a type of bay window. They’re a bit expensive because if you want to add additional design pieces, they will have to be customized.  
Adding new windows to your home, or replacing old ones  is a big project. You’re going to have to spend money on it. Since that’s the case, you should do it right the first time. Repairs will be even more expensive and will eat up a lot of your time.  
You can find fresh window ideas online. Or it may be that a completely custom design will suit your needs more. The goal is to create a home that you’re happy to live in. You should have no worries about inviting guests over because you’re proud of your home.  
It’s worth it to replace your windows even if you’re going to sell your home. It could induce the buyer to give you a higher price. People love big, pretty windows.
