When you decide it’s time for a window upgrade, the choices can sometimes be overwhelming. Double-hung? Bay? Picture? Before you make up your mind, it’s important to keep a few factors in mind to make sure that your new windows are the perfect complement to your home’s needs, décor and style.
What style of decorating do you like? Do you have a lot of clean, sleek lines and minimalist decorating? Make sure your windows follow the same stylistic guidelines to match the rest of the house. The same rule applies for any kind of style; traditional, unique, bold, etc. Choosing patterned or textured mullions and frames can also enhance the look of your windows and make them even more cohesive with the rest of your home. Talk to your manufacturer about what options you have.
Do you need your windows to be operable;
able to let fresh air in and out of your rooms? Or are you looking for fixed
windows, which let in natural light, but do not open? Depending on which type
of window is best for your specific needs and rooms, there are many options.
Fixed bay windows are great for kitchens and sitting rooms, while double hung
and slider windows are great choices for bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas
where smaller windows are used.
Besides being purely functional, windows can also be a great way to create an interesting, beautiful focal point in a room. If you have large, picturesque windows or interesting architecture in your home, play them up with window styles, shapes, colors and details. Choosing eye-catching, creative window combinations is a great way to play up both your interior and exterior spaces.
