If you’re installing a new window in your bedroom, there are several window styles on the market that would be suitable. Each has its advantages, with some ideal for tight corners and others for spacious areas.
Most window styles can be used in bedrooms, but here are three of the best options, according to experts.
1. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows have always been a classic choice for bedrooms — and for good reason. With two operable sashes, these windows offer a choice of how you want the windows to be opened, allowing for versatility and better air circulation. They’re also a great choice for children’s bedrooms as they have staggered ventilation latches that prevent the windows from opening up too much. Aside from these benefits, they’re also easy to find because most suppliers have them in stock in various standard sizes.
2. Casement Windows
Another reliable choice, casement windows are also popular among homeowners because they are great to look at and easy to operate. They provide proper air circulation, natural lighting and energy efficiency. Casement windows tightly push into the frame when they’re closed, making them ideal for bedrooms that need insulation. Plus, their narrow design also works great for deterring intruders.
3. Bay or Bow Windows
Bay and bow windows are a great choice if your bedroom has extra space and if you’re looking for a unique window design. This style has three window units that jut out from the exterior wall, and you are free to choose what window styles to use in the assembly. The most common choices are to have three double-hung windows or two casement windows flanking a double-hung window. Regardless of the window units you choose, a bay or bow window offers exceptional appeal and ventilation.
