What Is a Picture Window?
Put simply, a picture window is one that features a larger than average, fixed single pane of glass in a sparse frame. Picture windows are often confused with “fixed windows”, since they’re actually quite similar in appearance overall. But a fixed window has a more standard frame, and tends to let in less light.
The idea of a picture window, appropriately enough, is to provide you with a “picture” of the outdoors, offering no obstruction to your view and providing a great bit of natural lighting. Traditionally picture windows are not openable, staying directly affixed to the wall they are installed in. This means they won’t bring in any air flow, but that can actually be a perk for energy-efficiency minded homeowners.
What are the Benefits of Installing Picture Windows?
What can a picture window do for you and your home? A lot more than you might think, actually! When you choose picture windows, you get:
- A gorgeous window. If it wasn’t a gorgeous window, we wouldn’t be suggesting it! But seriously, picture windows are amongst the most attractive features of many homes they’re installed in, and are really hard to match in sheer “wow” factor.
- A picture-perfect view. Many homeowners choose picture windows for a large, unobstructed view of the outdoors. This can both provide tons of gorgeous, natural light, and also an excellent view.
- Preserved home comfort and efficiency. Because they are fixed, they don’t have any of the structural weak points of say, a sash window, which can leak outdoor air into your home or vice versa.
- Aesthetic versatility. Picture windows can be installed just about anywhere, and can offer you a lot of options. They can be small or large, as you wish. They can be very diverse in frame design. And, our favorite, they pair awesomely with other window types to create a very dynamic, unique design.
