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.

"When we purchased the windows at the end of February we had been informed the lead time would be middle of August for installation. I was okay with this as they had been straight forward about the time frame. As the process moved forward I was kept informed via email at the various stages. I had received an email at the email of May stating the windows have finished being built and we can schedule installation. I was thrilled to have them be installed by the end of June. The installers showed up on time had been very courteous while performing the installation. They had scheduled 4 days for the installation and had completed it within 3 days. There was an issue with our front door as it was on back order and they brought out the wrong door by mistake, however they installed a temporary door until our door arrived and then came back out and installed the new door. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing replacement doors and or windows."

"A phenomenal removal and replacement of our front door. The installers were very detail oriented and very meticulous. This was the second time we've had doors replace with Renewal by Andersen of SW Missouri and both time our expectations were exceeded."

"The replacement windows are great quality and look great! The windows we are slowly replacing are original to the house, and are Andersen windows that are 40± years old! Our installers are the best! They went above and beyond what was expected of them. I highly recommend!! A+"
