A big trend in home window replacement projects we see homeowners invest in are floor-length windows. Residents are starting to see these windows as viable to adding value to their homes. But, do floor-length windows make sense for every homeowner? When the time comes to swap out your windows, these are both the advantages and disadvantages American Window Products informs customers about.


Tons of Light


One of the biggest benefits of floor-length windows is the vast amount of light they let into a room. With traditional windows, the wall below them is blocking any sunlight coming through. With floor-length windows, all the light shining on that side of the home can come straight through.


Room Expansion


Do you want to create the appeal of a visually larger room without knocking down any walls? Floor-length windows allow rooms to appear much larger because no real wall is separating the room. When you need a home window repair, consider replacing the window with floor-length options. American Window Products can help your rooms appear bigger, adding value to your home without knocking walls down.


Privacy Concerns


A great concern customers have about floor-length windows is about privacy. Some people enjoy having an expanded view of their exterior surroundings and do not mind others being able to see them. Even though they are visually appealing inside the home, neighbors will be able to look straight inside. For those looking for a bit more privacy, choosing floor-length windows may not be the best choice to renovate your home.




Safety should always be a great consideration when renovating a home especially, if you have young children playing near the home. With floor-length windows, the glass is going to be more exposed, and the risk is higher that they could be damaged. The pieces of glass are bigger, and the accessibility to them far easier.  A household with young children can have floor-length windows, but think about which rooms would be best to install them based on where your children play most often.




When choosing floor-length windows, it comes down to what is best for your family and home. American Window Products has numerous choices with floor-length and traditional windows. We can’t wait to work with you to give your family the best window options!
