Article Summary: 

This article provides a complete guide to picture windows, also known as fixed windows. It covers the features of fixed windows, their pros and cons, common window combinations using picture windows, where they work best at home, and tips for decorating them. Fixed windows are great for offering panoramic views of the surrounding and increasing natural light in a home. They are also more affordable, offer better insulation and energy efficiency, and add curb appeal to a home. However, they do not provide ventilation, can be challenging to clean, and can cause heat gain. Picture windows are commonly used as an architectural accent in many contemporary homes. They work best in low-lit spaces, unused exterior walls, and as an accent in unexpected locations. When decorating picture windows, it's important to choose a manufacturer that offers to customize the dimensions, hang curtains closer to the ceiling, and ensure the curtain rod extends a few inches to the side of the window frame. Overall, picture windows are a great choice for showcasing outdoor views without any obstructions.
