Before we move on to window styles to choose from, here are a couple of other window decisions you will likely have to make.
Operable or Inoperable Windows
A lot of people choose to have inoperable windows that only work to let light into the house and increase energy efficiency. But there many merits to owning operable windows. In the long run, you’ll be spending a lot less on cooling if the windows can be opened to facilitate proper ventilation. Plus these windows can be equipped with vinyl or fibre windows to make them more energy efficient.
Energy Efficient or Not
Energy efficient windows will also lower your heating and cooling costs and are an environmentally sound choice to make. Moving on to what we’re here for, the most popular windows for your home.
Double Hung Windows
Not just your bedroom but double hung windows are a popular window style in general. Because they can open from the top or bottom, giving you greater control over the airflow.
You won’t get the same amount of control over air flow but they are the best windows for any weather. Even in rain and snow, awning windows can just be pushed open and any rain or snow will simply slide down the pane. Letting you take a breath of fresh air in any weather.
While not the most practical windows, architectural windows can help you add a touch of uniqueness to your bedroom.
Because these don’t open, it is wise to use this window style to complement another.
If you have the room, bay windows are possibly the best way to go. With enough room to facilitate seating and add a few books and plants to the frame, these can create a small nook by your window and give you a place to keep extra storage and add extra seating.
