Matching the Window Style With the Room

Each part of your house has its own set of requirements so you need to find the right windows to match those. Yet, this can seem overwhelming for a lot of homeowners. To assist you, we’ve pulled together a guide for each room of your house.

Matching the Window Style With the Room


Living Room

Living rooms are often the largest room in a house so they require windows that allow in lots of natural light and ventilation. Operable window styles with large glass areas, such as bay and bow windows, are ideal for living rooms.

When you select Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows, you won’t have to worry about ultraviolet (UV) rays fading your furniture or walls. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages feature low emissivity coatings that block UV rays as well as solar heat.

Dining Room

Dining rooms are more often used in the evening so natural lighting isn’t a top priority. This is an opportunity to choose window designs with visual appeal, such as double hung replacement windows with interesting grille designs. If there happens to be a visual element right outside the dining room – perhaps, a sculpture with night illumination – you can frame it with a casement or picture window.


Kitchens demand practicality, and the same applies to windows. A well-lit kitchen helps make you more efficient with your tasks. Ample ventilation lets you flush out excess moisture, smoke and odors. Windows that can be operated using one hand, such as sliding windows, are ideal.


Bedroom windows also double as egress windows. Therefore, they need to be of a certain size and easy to operate in order to comply with building codes. This is the reason why most bedrooms have double-hung windows. It’s a familiar design, can be built big enough to comply with egress requirements and can allow for ventilation even when installed as the solitary window in the room.


Bathrooms require adequate ventilation and natural light, but most importantly, they require privacy. You wouldn’t want passersby or your next-door neighbors to casually peer into your bathroom. You can control privacy with window treatments: consider obscured window glass if you’re looking for something more permanent and stylish.

"From initial review and purchase to installation, this team provided outstanding service. We were informed about the project status from start to finish. Everything was clear to us. We were very please the 6 windows were ready and installed earlier than originally planned. We'll work with them again on our next window replacement project."
