There are some windows that become the focal point of any room that they are in, and picture windows are a prime example. These are large, stationary (they do not open or close) windows that have only one visible pane of glass that provides an expansive and unobstructed view of the outdoors. Because they are large and let in such vast amounts of light and beauty from the world outside, they are a jaw-dropping addition to any home, particularly if the home has more of a modern aesthetic.
In addition to providing a jaw-dropping appearance to your home, picture windows also offer several other notable benefits, including:
- Advanced insulation and weatherproofing – Since traditional picture windows do not open or close, their edges are tightly sealed to create far less of an opportunity for air and water leaks than traditional windows. Picture windows that have features such as Low-E coated glass, gas fills, and warm-edge spacers provide an even more enhanced level of energy efficiency.
- Minimal maintenance requirements – Because there are no moving components or hard-to-reach nooks in picture windows, they are far easier to clean than other window styles. Another benefit of not having any moveable parts is that picture windows rarely have any mechanical problems, so you will be able to save money on repairs.
