Picture windows are stationary, often large single-paned rectangular, non-opening windows that bring the beauty of your outdoor environment inside the home. One of the grander window options, they open up a room and let lots of sunlight in. But, more than anything else, they are designed to provide a clear, unhindered view of your outdoor setting, serving the function of a large frame for the scenery outside.
Since picture windows typically do not open, they are often used in combination with other types of windows that actually open. Commonly, they are paired with casement windows on either side. This provides the perfect picture frame for your outdoors and at the same time supplies the ventilating requirements that you need. In short, this combination gives you both beauty and practicality in one package.
While choosing the right treatments for your picture windows may be a challenge, you can easily mount curtains that can be pulled aside or let hang freely to address privacy issues.
