Ask for Windows in Combinations

by Joann Whetstine

Windows come in many shapes and sizes, but did you know that you can also order windows in combinations? Whether your goal is to improve your view, bring in more light or add ventilation, mixing and matching window operating styles provides endless possibilities for your home.

Bay Windows

One of the most popular window combination is the bay window. You’ve probably seen them everywhere. It’s typically a picture window with 2 flanking windows at an angle. It projects outside your exterior wall and can make a cozy window seat inside. In this example, the side windows are a single hung style that open for ventilation.

Kitchen Window Combinations

Here is an example of vinyl casements below with awning windows above. This photo shows four Tuscany® Series vinyl replacement windows. This add so much style to the room, versus a single horizontal slider. Plus, you can open as many or as few as you like for ventilation. Beautiful!

Window Wall

This soaring glass wall created with Milgard Aluminum Series windows brings in an abundance of natural light and really expands this view. Aluminum is especially good for combinations because the frames are strong. Plus, they have thin profiles that achieve a very contemporary look.

Ventilation

Another reason to use windows in combination is for some extra ventilation. In this example, a horizontal slider is used in combination with a picture window above it. This helps provide ventilation close to the floor without breaking up your view.

So when you’re ready to order windows for replacement or new construction, ask your window dealer about window combinations options that could improve your view, bring in light or add ventilation to your home. You may be surprised at the possibilities.
