3 Picture Window Combination Ideas to Try on Your Home

3 Picture Window Combination Ideas to Try on Your Home

April 16, 2015

Picture windows, though inoperable, can be used for different areas of your home. In fact, we encourage you to do so! These fixed units can be installed on their own but are often paired with operable units to enhance beauty and function. In this entry, we focus on some of the combinations you can do with this beautiful window style.

Picture Window + 2 Casements

You can fit three units in a large-enough opening. What you can do is put a picture window in between two casements. Casements are side hung and open outward. They’re great for adding ventilation to a room and are known to have the most energy-efficient design among replacement windows in Albany, NY.

Further, like picture units, they typically feature slimmer frames for a bigger viewing area. The classic picture and casement combination (sometimes called Chicago style) gives you unobstructed scenery and fresh air ventilation at the same time. They’re perfect for sitting areas and reading nooks.

Picture Window + Custom-Shaped Unit

Spacious rooms are pretty dramatic on their own, but you’ll want to capitalize on that. There’s nothing more dramatic than a picture unit and custom-shaped window combo. Renewal by Andersen® carries specialty windows in 13 eye-catching shapes.

For wide openings, we suggest an oversized picture unit installed with a Chord or elongated Equal Leg Arch specialty window. This will let in a great deal of light, which you can control by adding curtains or blinds. This combination works really well in large living rooms or master bedrooms.

Picture Window + 2 Double-Hung Units

Double-hung units are a staple for many traditional American homes. They’re timeless and practical. They’re designed for easier use: two staggered sashes slide up and down and can be tilted inward for manageable cleaning.

These units can be made taller and thinner so they can fit in cramped or narrow spaces. Or they can be installed alongside picture units on a wide expanse of wall, as in a hallway. Like casements, combining double-hung units with picture windows works in ventilating a room.

Is there an old patio door you want to get rid of? Consider installing a large picture unit in its place. The effect is stunning. All that clear glass fills the room with sunshine while letting you take in the scenery outside.
