You’ll start seeing more and more homes with reading rooms that have plenty of natural light, which is why picture windows are the trending window option for homeowners right now.

For those of you who may not know, picture windows are big, typically don’t open, and essentially replace the majority of the wall to frame nature as the focal art piece in the room.

Whether you’re building a new home or renovating your existing dwelling, picture windows are a must, so where should you place them to maximize their effectiveness?

Ideally, you should pick a spot where you want to optimize the daylight exposure in your home and enjoy the view of the outdoors, so make sure you install it in an area that allows you to maximize the benefits and features of these windows.
