September 27, 2016

Natural light has many positive effects on our health and home. According to studies, light can help fight stress and elevate moods. In addition, it helps create a cheerful atmosphere in our living environment. If you’re thinking of ways to brighten up your bedroom, kitchen, or living room without having to install lighting fixtures, then consider getting replacement windows in Albany, NY. Huff ‘N Puff offers five distinct window styles that can open your home to light:

Window Styles

1. Picture

What it lacks in ventilation, it makes up for in lighting. This style usually has the largest glass area among other options, providing you with panoramic outdoor views and plenty of natural light. Picture windows rarely have grilles or muntins, so light can easily enter and disperse throughout your space.

2. Casement

Although they don’t usually have big glass areas like picture windows, they are wide enough to provide an expansive view of the outdoors. They are also operable, so you can enjoy maximum ventilation when you need it. Casement composite windows provide a sufficient amount of light, since they don’t usually come with grilles and muntins that might obstruct lighting.

3. Sliding

This style is similar to picture, only that it can glide sideward to open your space to light and air. Sliding is an ideal choice if you want ample glass area for a room with a limited floor space.

4. Bay and Bow

These styles are a combination of three to six windows, which means they let you enjoy bigger glass panes. Since they have more glass areas than other styles, bay and bow windows can easily brighten up any room.

5. Double-Hung

One of the most popular styles today, double-hung windows can provide timeless appeal and functionality to your home. Nevertheless, it comes with a vast glass area that can easily let the sunshine in when necessary.

For your next window replacement, you can count on our experts at Huff ‘N Puff. We install top-quality windows from one of the largest window manufacturers in the country, Renewal by Andersen®. From picture to double-hung, we can provide the perfect options for your home.
