In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the most popular window styles for those who want to prioritize the view from inside their home or building. While there are numerous window types out there, several are known to be great for your ability to not only open and close the window, but also obtain great visual aesthetics.
At Rocky Mountain Windows & Doors, we’re here to help. We offer a huge range of window installation and window replacement options, from casement windows to corner windows, arched options and numerous other new window choices. What are some of the other unique window types that are often ideal for homeowners who put a premium on view? Here are some of the best options.
A fixed window, also known in many circles as a picture window, refers to a type that is not meant to open or close at all. It’s purely aesthetic in nature, helping light enter the space while providing interior room complements in many formats.
And because there are no moving parts you have to deal with, fixed windows are often ideal for those who want to open up their views. These windows can be much larger than many other types, without the kind of visual restrictions operational windows come with – cranks, handles and locks, just to name a few. For those who already have functional windows and don’t need any more ventilation, this option might be ideal.
Are you looking for a wrap-around view type? Consider corner windows, which can bend around corners as the name suggests. These are highly popular in modern home styles today, including new builds looking for sleek architecture.
Another angle-related option: The geometric window, which refers to an octagonal or another specially-shaped window that utilizes the angle of your ceiling, staircase or another home area. Speak to our team about which geometric options might do well within your home, given both your interior design and your view desires.
Bay and Bow
Corner windows aren’t the only option when it comes to panoramic windows that curve around corners. Bay and bow windows are another great choice here, creating their own little nook where you not only install curved windows, but also a small nook that usually serves as a sitting area (it can have other purposes too). These window types are fantastic for both interior design and your outdoor view, plus are known to provide fantastic return on investment for those who prioritize their home’s property value.
