A picture window is a large window that can’t be opened, allows large amounts of light into a room, and provides expansive views to the outdoors. Picture windows are available in rectangular, arched, and square styles.
Benefits of a Picture Window
Picture windows provide this list of benefits:
Improved Views of the Outdoors. Since a picture window is one large pane of glass, it provides an improved view of your back, front or side yards.
Affordability. Since picture windows don't come with moving parts, they cost less than a similar-sized, operable window.
Maximized Light. The size of a picture window transmits a lot of outside light to the inside of your home.
Added Architectural Interest and Curb Appeal. Picture windows are available in a variety of shapes including rectangular, square, and arched, and can modernize and enhance your home's exterior and curb appeal.
Heat Gain During Winter Months. Picture windows play an important part in passive solar design, since they let in large amounts of natural light to naturally warm your home throughout the winter months.
