When it comes to window replacement, every room in your home has a different set of requirements. This means the style of window that’s best for your bedroom may not be practical in another area of the home. Today, local replacement windows company Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod shares which are the best windows to install in every room of your home.
The living room is the center of your home and is often the biggest room in the house. Therefore, it needs as much natural light and ventilation as possible. If you have south-facing windows, bay windows are a great option because of their large glass area, which enables you to fully maximize the natural light entering your home.
When replacing your bathroom windows, privacy and ventilation should be your main focus. You need to allow the right amount of light so that your bathroom wouldn’t feel like a cave. Some great options for bathrooms are double-hung tilt windows or double-slider windows. Consider window treatments or opaque glass options to safeguard privacy.
Your bedroom windows should also double as an egress, i.e., an emergency exit. This requirement is mandated by international building codes, which state that bedroom windows must have a minimum sill and opening size. Also, the windows should be easy to open and occupants should be able to fit through. For this purpose, double-hung windows are a great choice since they’re easy to use, provide enough privacy and natural light, and are highly customizable.
Be sure to factor in the general climate of your area and the overall layout of your home into the equation as well when choosing windows.
