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.
