Picture Window Features
Picture windows are large, fixed-pane windows that do not open. The focal point of a picture window lies in the glass pane that creates a huge view without the presence of any grilles. Window grilles are decorative, narrow strips on a window that form vertical and horizontal grids. This design captures the attention of anyone who enters a space with large picture windows.
