Window Styles for Homes in Huntsville AL

Window styles Huntsville AL

Window styles add aesthetic appeal to a home’s interior and exterior. They also serve as a functional component of a house’s structure and energy efficiency.

Champion’s windows, sunrooms, and siding meet Energy Star manufacturing specifications and requirements. Their products keep heat in during the winter and cold air out during the summer.

Fixed or Picture Windows

Whether you’re looking to expand your home’s views or bring in more natural light, picture windows are a great option. They feature a low-thick frame and one large sheet of unobstructed glass. They can be paired with many different types of operational windows to create an unique design.

A series of these windows are ideal for bringing in stunning outdoor views and brightening up rooms with vaulted ceilings. They also provide a great addition to the living room, dining room, basement, or any other space that can benefit from more natural light. Grilles can be added to the frames for a classic and timeless look.

Hinged-Sash Windows

Hung windows are a popular choice for homes that lean toward a traditional aesthetic. They are available in single- or double-hung models, with the option of opening either the top or bottom sash. Double-hung windows allow more ventilation than single-hung options and are great for hard-to-reach areas.

Compared to casement windows, sash models have more moving parts, so they may require more maintenance. They also tend to be less water resistant than other window styles. However, sash windows are an excellent choice for bringing in natural light and adding ventilation to your home.

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows open horizontally along a top and bottom window track in the frame. They offer expansive views of your home’s landscape and bring in natural light and ventilation.

Single sliding windows have one inoperable sash that’s fixed in place, while double-hung windows can be opened vertically from the top or bottom. Both operate smoothly and provide enhanced ventilation. They also come in a variety of styles, interior and exterior colors, grid patterns and energy efficiency levels. You can even customize them to fit your specific needs. They’re low-maintenance and easy to clean, though they require the removal of the sash from the frame to access the interior.

Bay Windows

Bay windows are a great way to add architectural interest and create a cozy reading nook or dining area. They can also increase the resale value of your home.

Because of the added surface area, they’re great for displaying knick-knacks and flowers. In this home library from Emily Henderson Design, a pair of natural wood Scandi-style chairs are nestled in a floor-to-ceiling bay window flooded with light.

One downside of bay windows is that the center window typically can’t open for ventilation. However, you can mitigate this problem by choosing energy efficient windows like those offered by Champion. These windows meet all Energy Star manufacturing specifications and requirements, and come with a lifetime warranty.

Bow Windows

Bow windows offer a curved appearance on the outside while adding natural light to interior spaces. Their narrow exterior profile makes them a more practical option than bay windows for rooms close to sidewalks and streets.

These beautiful home additions add resale value while brightening your home with a gorgeous exterior profile and added space for seating or plants. They feature 3-6 window panels that project from the house in a curved shape.

Bow windows combine fixed windows in the center with your choice of venting windows on either side to create a rounded appearance. They are often seen in Victorian-style homes. Like bay windows, they open to ventilate your home with fresh air.

Garden Windows

Like a small bay or bow window, garden windows give homeowners a space for displaying plants, knick-knacks, and other household ornaments. They also let in plenty of natural light and provide a nook for a year-round garden.

Unlike other windows, our garden windows have twin-sealed side vents for increased ventilation. These features allow you to enjoy the benefits of natural light and fresh air while preserving energy efficiency in your home.
