Choosing a window for your bedroom can be tricky. After all, your house window replacement has to balance lighting and ventilation with your privacy needs. To help you choose a window replacement for your bedroom, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis narrowed down the best window types to use in a bedroom in this guide.

These are:

The Best Window Types to Use in a Bedroom

Double-Hung Windows

According to sleep experts, the ideal temperature for sleeping is somewhere around 65°F. A more cost-effective alternative to running an air conditioner to keep temperatures around this level is to install double-hung windows. As the name suggests, double-hung windows have two window sashes that can give you more control over air ventilation.

Casement Windows

Casement windows are an alternative to double-hung windows. They can be fully opened, providing maximum ventilation to ensure your most comfortable sleep.

Bay Windows

Ventilation is an important factor you need to consider before choosing a new window, but what if you want to expand the space in your bedroom? Bay windows would be a good choice. Bay and bow windows’ three window panes protrude from the exterior, providing extra floor space for your bedroom.

What Windows Should You Avoid?

In general, you should avoid windows that can’t be opened or have intricate designs that reduce its overall glass area. Your bedroom is supposed to be a space where you can feel at ease. Improved indoor ventilation and natural lighting, which can brighten the mood in your home, can create a relaxing atmosphere where you can unwind after a long day. Having trouble choosing a window? Consult a professional contractor from a window company.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
