Windows that Bring in Natural Light
With increasing evidence about the benefits of natural light, replacing your windows offers a great opportunity to think differently about window styles to increase your home’s natural light.
Double Hung/Single Hung
Double hung and single hung windows make great candidates for replacement options because of their tall profile and ability to be arranged in an assembly of multiple windows or as part of a bay window. Marvin Replacement’s Double and Single Hung windows are built with Ultrex® fiberglass, so you’ll enjoy looking out a narrower profile for bigger views.
Casement windows have one sash for an uninterrupted view.
Marvin Replacement Bay windows provide ample natural light with either casement or double hung windows arranged in 30° or 45° configurations. Opt for an operating center window to increase airflow into your home, too. Enjoy abundant natural light in your new cozy reading nook with insulated head and seat boards.
Bow windows use a combination of four, five, or six casement windows to allow a beam of natural light into your home. The flanking casement windows can open to capture a refreshing breeze.
Only the casement windows at each end of the bow window are operable.
Round top and Marvin Replacement Arch windows can utilize untapped space to increase natural light. Round top and arch windows can rest above windows and add curved lines to your home’s architecture. Round top windows include full circle windows, which can add light in homes with vaulted ceilings.
Special shape windows can do special things for homes by creating more opportunities for natural light. Special Shape windows have strong geometric lines and can come in trapezoid, pentagon, triangle, octagon, rectangle, and hexagon form. Special shape windows have versatility because they don’t have to fit directly above a window. There can often be a space between the windows.
