What Window Styles Work Best in Which Rooms?

When replacing windows, rule number one is to choose your units on a room-by-room basis. Every room is different and has unique needs, which means the right window style for one room might not work as well in another part of your home.

To make sound window replacement choices, Renewal by Andersen® of Spokane explains which styles of windows work best in certain areas of the home.


As the most popular window style among traditional homes, the double-hung is perfect for the front of your home. Windows located in the façade contribute to curb appeal significantly because they’re the most visible from the street.


The casement is a popular choice due to the latest building codes. To satisfy fire egress requirements, the casement is a great choice for finished living spaces.  Your window contractors  explain that it’s a common alternative to the double-hung in Old World home designs, but it’s not unusual to see it contemporary homes.


Since the living room often has the biggest floor area in the house, the picture window feels at home here. Its large glass panel floods the interior with abundant sunlight and captures panoramas, allowing you to welcome guests in style.


The sliding window is typically wider than it’s tall, making it the ultimate choice for rooms with short walls. Despite the low ceiling, introducing a sliding window can create a seamless indoor-outdoor connection and admit a profusion of sunshine. Plus, it’s a perfect complement to glass walls with zero ventilating qualities.

Bay or Bow

Projecting windows, like the bay or the bow, work well on front-facing walls. The bump-out they create lends drama and interest to the façade.
