Picture Windows Guide

Picture windows are non-operational windows that are most often used as decoration, to let in additional light, and give the appearance of a more spacious room. They can be manufactured in almost any shape, and placed to enhance any view. Below is information on the features, pros and cons, price, and other details of picture windows you’ll need to determine your new window choice.

About Picture Windows

Picture windows are single paned, stationary windows that bring in more natural light than other windows styles, in addition to increasing the decorative appeal of a room. They do not open but are a great choice if you want to create new or more expansive views in your home.

Locating Picture Windows in Your Home

Unlike other window designs, picture windows do not have a specific function makes them suited only for certain rooms in the house. They are an extremely versatile style that can be installed anywhere to increase access to natural light.

Picture Window Materials

Picture windows are a highly popular window style and as a result are manufactured in all of the common window materials, including vinyl, wood, and composite fiberglass. Vinyl windows are on the less expensive side of the price spectrum, whereas wood and composite frames will be more expensive. The material you choose for your window installation will depend on budget and style preferences. Brands differ substantially in the colors, glass, and other customization features offered, so the material you choose will also depend on the design options you are looking for.
