You want your home office to be a quiet and serene place where you can focus and be productive. Did you know that your choice of windows can affect the room’s whole vibe, as well as your productivity? Here, Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky suggests four window styles perfect for any home office space:
1. Bay Windows
Bay windows are among the most popular design choices for home offices due to their aesthetic and functional appeal. Bay windows are actually made up of three windows—a picture window in the middle bordered by two smaller windows on the sides. These windows let abundant daylight in, and since they extend farther out from the wall, they free up some extra floor space inside. Bay windows are a good choice if you want some extra space without sacrificing daylight.
2. Bow Windows
Bow windows are similar to bay windows, except they feature four windows of equal size. Since they’re more angular, we recommend them for traditionally designed homes, such as Victorian and Tudor style houses.
Bow windows do not protrude out from the wall as much as bay windows, which means they occupy more wall space. This is actually a good thing since as it allows them to let more daylight in. Exposure to sunlight is proven to encourage productivity, which is exactly what you want in a home office space.
3. Sliding Windows
Our window company suggests sliding and gliding windows as another great option for offices. Their universal design allows them to blend in with the architecture of both contemporary and traditionally designed houses. They also let a lot of daylight in, even more than bow windows! So if you want a window that’ll make you more productive, we recommend this style for your home office.
4. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows feature a straightforward, symmetrical design, making them a good choice for home offices. Their design makes cleaning easy, and they also allow a generous amount of sunlight in to enhance your productivity. Double-hung windows are also the greenest of all the window choices as they feature a superior airtight seal when closed, coupled with energy-efficient glass panes. For a simple yet highly efficient window for your office space, we recommend this option.
