While any window can be described as providing a glimpse of the outside world, a picture window is a way to truly bring the outside into your house. They provide an unobstructed look at your surroundings, while you get to stay in the comfort of home. In addition to its aesthetic value, a picture window can actually increase the market value of your house.Types of Picture Windows

Some people choose to replace a single large window with one smaller picture window and two opening windows on either side. This will provide ventilation when desired, but still keep the same view and structure of the wall.When dealing with the large amount of space they have to work with, picture window replacement often makes homeowners look for a little extra. Bay windows, though not technically "picture windows", are very appealing for many reasons. While still offering a very excellent view of the outside, bay windows create more space in the home by pushing out of the exterior wall. They provide not only a view, but also a spot to sit and enjoy that view. It is also possible to open bay windows, which is a task that a picture window cannot perform. Bay windows and bow windows (basically just curved bay windows) will require more work to install than a simple picture window replacement. Since they extend past where the existing wall ends, bay windows require extra support. They will also need their own siding and roofing. Replacing a picture window is a very big job, and should definitely be done by someone with experience. Even the DIYers who has replaced other windows on his or her own might do well to hire a professional for this particular job.
