Crystal clear views of your stunning backyard are key when you own a waterfront home. Whether you’re situated on the ocean, Intracoastal or a small pond, there’s no doubt you chose your home for its stellar location. When you invest in a property of that caliber, it’d be silly not to make the most of it. It’s a no-brainer that your windows are your source of beautiful views and natural light. Here are the best window choices to elevate your waterfront views:

Barcelona Windows

These windows check every box a homeowner desires — style, protection and energy efficiency. If you’re unfamiliar with this SOFT-LITE design, the vinyl materials provide maximum views with minimal upkeep. If you look up from the beach at the homes with large, contemporary window panes, there’s a good chance you’re looking at Barcelona windows. 


The large, elegant glass panes offer plenty of natural light without sacrificing on energy efficiency. Multichambered weatherstripping eliminates drafts and contributes to its impressive ENERGY STAR rating. What does all that mean, exactly? Simply put, you can export affordable utility bills and maximum natural light. 

Fiberglass Doors

Okay, okay, this isn’t a type of window. But every waterfront homeowner knows the importance of large, water-facing glass doors. The professionals at American Window Products recommend fiberglass-framed doors that open out to your backyard. 


This door material comes in countless different designs, shapes and sizes. Whether your home follows a coastal design scheme or something more contemporary, fiberglass is your best bet for your waterfront house. 

Hy-Lite Acrylic Block Windows

It’s no secret that onlookers from the beach can see straight into your home. While this isn’t a worry in spaces like your kitchen or living room, it’s certainly not ideal in private areas. When it comes to your bathroom, hy-lite acrylic block windows are the way to go. 


This unique design promotes natural light while blurring the glass. Multiple panes and expert installation results in top-notch energy efficiency and a beautiful design addition to any nome.
