Update Your Space With A New Window Design

Update Your Space With A New Window Design


Just like most parts of a building, windows eventually need to be upgraded and replaced. If your windows are more than 20 years old and looking a little worse for wear, it's time to start fresh with a new set from Five Mile Glass. Read on to learn about five types of popular windows we offer at our showroom in Spokane, WA.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are large, rectangular windows that don't open. They experienced a surge in popularity in houses built during the post-war era. They are often seen in living rooms or kitchens. They typically range in size from three to five feet in width to four to six feet in length. When it comes to design, picture windows are usually installed in groups of two or three to help open up space.

Casement Windows

Casement windows have hinges on either the right or left side and open outwards by using a crank, which is why they are sometimes known as crank windows. These are a great choice if you're looking to add extra ventilation to a room, such as a kitchen or bathroom.

Slider Windows

Similar to picture windows, sliders windows work well in wide spaces. They can be opened by sliding the track from side to side. These are a great choice if you're looking to add windows that face a backyard because they open up enough to bring in the outside breeze.

Transom Windows

For a classic that withstands the test of time, get transom windows. These have been found in buildings since the 14th century. They are designed to be placed above doors, to let in natural light or let in a fresh breeze if you choose. Transom windows come in a variety of styles and sizes; they are the perfect choice if you want a unique touch for your home.

Arched Windows

Like their namesake, arched windows are square at the bottom and rounded at the top. They were most often seen during the Roman Empire, but they have a place in modern homes. If you're looking for windows that have a more distinct design than picture windows, arched windows are a suitable option.
