If you desire more creativity, you can mix and match a few different window sizes and styles to best capture your unique style and vision for the space.

Other popular window styles for living rooms include casement windows and awning windows especially if you are looking to open them and allow a nice breeze in.

Kitchen Windows

Kitchens are frequently referred to as the heart of any home and where most people’s time is spent. The windows you choose for the space should add style, function, and value to your home. 

Casement windows are a popular style for this space and sliding windows are ideal because of their ease of use. To help protect your kitchen cabinets from sun damage, consider applying an energy-efficient or protective coating to your kitchen glass installations. 

Bathroom Windows

Bathroom windows often provide ample natural lighting. Because these spaces are subject to a lot of moisture, it is important to choose functional installations that allow you to easily ventilate the space but also provide the right amount of privacy. 

The ideal window for your bathrooms may be a single-hung or casement window. Adding a tint, window treatment, or obscure glass can work to enhance your privacy and the design of your bathroom. 

Bedroom Windows

Several window styles suit many bedrooms. The most popular bedroom windows are double-hung, single-hung, and casement window styles because of their operability.
