Small rooms are one of the most challenging areas to remodel, especially in terms of visual space. Fortunately, the right style of replacement windows can make any room in Nashville look more spacious. The following are the tried-and-tested styles that add visual space to small rooms.
Casement Windows – A space-enhancing window style should admit lots of natural light. While picture windows seem to be the perfect candidate, consider that small rooms have equally small window areas. Casement windows can often work better in these spaces. A sash with a single uninterrupted glass panel that covers the entire window area is perfect for maximum natural light and ventilation as well as for capturing a beautiful view. Plus, casement windows are the most energy-efficient operable window style since the sashes press against the frames as opposed to sliding on tracks.
Window Wall – A window wall is made up of several windows that occupy a large portion of the exterior wall, sometimes from floor to ceiling. Most window wall designs use picture windows, but you can practically choose any combination, such as a row of double hung windows. If you’re considering a window wall, note that taking out a portion of the wall may require a separate contractor and will incur additional costs. If you’re worried about the effects of unwanted ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages only let visible light through and block everything else.
Sliding Windows – If physical space is a concern, a sliding window is a great space-saver. The unique thing about sliding windows is that the weight of the sashes is evenly distributed throughout the bottom frame. This lets you choose bigger window sizes that would not have been possible due to the sash weight. Thanks to our Fibrex® material frames, you can expect strong window sashes and continued smooth performance over time.
Bay Windows – Bay windows are unique in that it is the only window style that adds useable physical space to a room, all without taking up additional floor area. The space created by the window is often used as a window seat while the bottom is often used for storage. The protrusion also can also add visual volume to the exterior and make it look bigger from the curb.
