Window Design Tips

Learn More About Your Home’s Architecture

The architectural style of your home influences your choice of windows. Modern or contemporary interiors, for example, highlight sleek, symmetrical lines and minimalist elements. Sliding windows work well in this type of aesthetic thanks to their slim frames, but they don’t require grilles or any other additions. Colonial-style homes are more traditional, and while window options for this aesthetic are more flexible, a set of double-hung windows with grid-style grilles add to the interior design’s historic accuracy.

Utilize Different Window Styles

It doesn’t matter if you live in a traditional or contemporary home — mixing and matching different window styles creates a combination that adds visual interest to your living spaces. For instance, you can have two casement windows flanking both sides of a picture window. With this, you not only harness natural light but also enhance the ventilation of the room. Also, consider installing windows together with patio doors to create a “wall of glass” effect that helps make your indoors more open and more connected with the outdoors.

Consider Specialty Windows

If you are looking to switch to a less conventional window style for your new set of replacement windows, why not go with specialty windows? Unlike your common casement, double-hung or sliding windows that are rectangular in shape, this particular window style is built with frames that are anything but four-sided. Think circles, semicircles, and polygonal shapes, like pentagons or octagons. They can be standalone fixtures on a wall in your room or used in combination with other operable windows.
