Choosing replacement windows starts with finding good remodeling and window replacement contractors who will help you every step of the way. Once you’ve settled on a professional, the first phase is the design phase. Different rooms in your home will have different needs and choosing a style of replacement windows to meet these needs requires plenty of preparation.
For bedrooms, the best replacement windows are the ones that promote plenty of rest and relaxation. However, there are still a lot more that goes into this decision than this. Here are a few recommendations from our design experts at Turner Home Improvement.
Local Building Codes
A bedroom window replacement unit is required by code to double as an egress window in case of emergencies. Local building codes vary from one area to another and your remodeling contractor can help you get familiar with these requirements. Generally speaking, egress windows must be large enough to accommodate a fully grown adult to enter or exit the bedroom so small windows are definitely out of the picture.
A window that can open or close is said to be operable. Bedrooms need at least one operable window for its egress window. This means large picture windows are not a good idea for bedrooms. Sliding and casement windows, on the other hand, are great choices because of their easy operability.
Style and Design
Lastly, your choice of windows must match your siding from the exterior as well as the general design of your interiors. Double-hung windows fit well in most traditional homes, however, bay and bow windows are also good choices thanks to the extra floor space that they provide.
