Limited spaces can be tricky to navigate, let alone decorate. Fortunately, you can overcome spatial issues with a solution from Renewal by Andersen® of Central PA: sliding windows.
Here are the features of sliding windows that make them the perfect window type for dimensionally challenged homes.
Pressed for space? Just slide over. Hinged windows open outward or inward, therefore obstructing pathways and taking up precious livable area. Sliding windows, on the other hand, conserve more space since they open sideways.
A sliding window typically has two sashes that can be opened up to 50% of the window’s width from the left or right side. Some sliding windows have a stationary sash and can only be opened from the other sash. It’s best to choose gliding windows that open on both sides for optimal ventilation. The smooth operation of this type of window is courtesy of easy-to-maintain, durable, weatherproof tracks. Sliding windows can also be conveniently lifted up to allow easy cleaning.
Rooms With a View
Sliding windows feature a large glass area, allowing natural light to stream in while offering an unobstructed view of the outside scenery. The best rooms to install sliding windows are social spaces where your family and guests get together, such as dining and living rooms.
For maximum aesthetic appeal, you can customize the look of your sliding windows, from hardware and grilles, down to color. You may consult your replacement windows company regarding your glass type and window frame material options. There’s also a wide variety of energy-efficient window material options, as well as customizable glass coating and tints that allow you to control the amount of sunlight that streams into your home.
