Picture windows are great as standalone windows, but you might be surprised to know that they can be combined with other window styles to add features like ventilation. Replacement window company Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville shares a look at how you can combine picture windows with other window styles.
Combination windows can be configured two ways: by mulling them or making them part of a bay window. Mulled windows are multiple windows of the same height, installed flat along the wall. Windows of the same style are typically used in a mulled window, but different styles can be combined. Bay windows, on the other hand, are projection windows, which mean they protrude from the wall. A typical bay window configuration consists of a center picture window, flanked with operable windows of the same style.
While virtually any window style can be combined with picture windows, the following styles are proven favorites among homeowners:
- Sliding Windows — Sliding windows are ideal for areas where hinged windows would otherwise get in the way. Since the bottom frame carries the weight of the sashes, it allows bigger window sizes without compromising operability.
- Casement Windows — Casement windows are single-sash hinged windows that allow maximum ventilation, especially when paired with another casement window. Unlike most window styles, casement window sashes press against the window frame. They complement the picture windows’ inherent energy efficiency. Casement windows are ideal for minimalist designs as they don’t have a second sash that interrupts the main window area.
- Double-Hung Windows — This classic window style works in any configuration, whether standalone or as part of a combination. Renewal by Andersen double-hung windows feature weighted sashes that allow easy operation. The sashes can also be tilted inwards for easy indoor cleaning.
