4 Items to Consider When Choosing Bedroom Windows

Bedroom windows need specific features, so there are items that you need to consider when selecting replacement windows. Renewal by Andersen® of Des Moines lists the factors you need to consider when choosing bedroom replacement windows.

  1. Building Codes — No matter what replacement windows you choose, they should comply with local and international building codes. Each room that is used by the occupant for sleeping – which is exactly what bedrooms are – needs to have one window that allows emergency egress. The window needs to be at least 24 inches tall, 20 inches wide and 44 inches from the ground at most. The net clear opening should be 5 square feet.
  2. Sound Control — If you work the night shift, need a quiet place to study or are a musician or a video content creator, you have to choose window replacement options that insulate against sound. Fortunately, window replacement options with efficient insulation against heat also insulate against sound. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages are proven to dramatically reduce sound coming from the curb when the windows are closed.
  3. Home Style — It pays to research your home’s architectural style as it can point you to which window styles are suitable for your bedrooms. While typical bedrooms feature the classic double-hung windows, your home style may be better suited with bay or casement windows with authentic grille designs.
  4. Permanent Components — Brick, stone and other types of permanent components are typically found on the exterior. But there are certain designs, such as a full-brick interior, that require windows that work with these styles. This is why Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are available in different interior and exterior colors. In fact, if your bedroom has a beautiful wood interior that shows off the wood grain, we offer stainable pine, oak and maple options to match.
