The Best Window Types to Use in a Bedroom

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.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
