What is a Picture Window?

A picture window is a large window that offers a clear and unobstructed view of the outside world, but does not open up. Making the outside view the focal point for any room, it becomes the framework for whatever view is on display be it a river, the ocean, a forest, or mountains. With the intention of providing an unimpeded view, picture windows, typically are without glazing bars, or glazed with only perfunctory glazing bars near the edge of the window exactly as if framing a picture.

Advantages of Buying Picture Windows

Here are a few advantages of purchasing picture windows:

  • They provide a clear view of the natural beauty that is outside and make it seem like a part of the room.
  • Because they don’t have moving parts that break and need replacing they are normally cheaper to maintain than standard windows.
  • They can help with insulation and weather-proofing. These windows are very energy efficient and provide more heat during the wintertime by allowing in more sunshine. In addition, picture windows are fixed which means that heat does not escape and cold air cannot come inside.
  • They provide great natural lighting! Picture windows are made mostly of glass, letting loads of sunshine into your home. You won't need artificial lighting as much during the daytime.
  • They may bring in sunlight, but also keep out allergens at the same time. This is a great window choice for anyone who needs to keep out bad air due to allergies.
