Choosing Windows for Each Room: A Simple Guide

At Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island, we offer a wide selection of windows that can perfectly fit the architectural style of any home. However, take note of the room where you’re going to replace your old, inefficient windows. Each area of your home has its own set of window requirements.

Let this guide help you in choosing the right replacement windows for every room.

Living Room

This part of your home is an area of high activity, so you’d want it to be as spacious and well-lit as possible. As such, consider windows with expansive glass that covers a significant wall area. Bay and bow windows are perfect examples. Both have multiple window panels to give you an uninterrupted view of the outdoors while letting copious amounts of sunlight into your room.


Consider comfort when choosing windows for your bedroom. Operable windows such as casement windows are a great choice. Their swing-out mechanism allows you to either fully open them for maximum ventilation or at a certain angle for catching side breezes and controlling airflow.


For your kitchen, choose a window that you can easily reach over a sink or counter. Sliding windows are perfect choices in this part of your home. Gently move the sash to open the window, especially when cooking. The ventilation it provides helps remove any smells left behind in your kitchen from your previous cooking and meal preparations.


Choose a window that can give you the utmost privacy. Specialty windows, for instance, come in different shapes and configurations to give you a fair amount of lighting. To protect yourself from prying eyes, make sure that the window is installed high above the wall.

To help you decide on which replacement windows are the best fit for your room, consult Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
