Should Windows Always Match?

Whether you’re building a new home or getting one or two new windows, a question might arise: should you change the other windows in your home as well so that everything matches?Should Windows Always Match?

The answer to this is  a simple no. It’s not necessary to keep the same look for every window in your home. Your front windows shouldn’t dictate what your other windows look like.

Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, a reputable window installer, shares two essential tips for using different window styles in your home.

Windows Should Match the Room

As a general rule of thumb, you should keep the basic features of your window compatible. These means keeping a similar styles for the trim, muntins and grille patterns. Also, if you’re aiming for a modern aesthetic, make sure that all your windows show that kind of style. If you use traditional or antique-looking windows for some areas, these may look out of place and break the harmony in your home’s design.

Apart from the basic style of your windows, you should also consider the room where you will be placing the windows. For your living room, a large window is usually ideal especially if you have a nice view. Your dining room, however, is probably used mostly in the evenings, so having a big window in this room might not make such an impact. For your kitchen, a double-hung window over your sink would be difficult to open and close. That’s why casement windows are often recommended here.

Wherever you plan to add new windows, consult your home window replacement contractor.

Window Height Should Match the Space

There are standard window sizes, but you don’t have to use these standard measurements for your own windows, especially if they don’t work with the amount of space you have. If you need custom sizes for your windows, we’d gladly help you achieve the window size that suits your home. And if you’re thinking of raising window height, don’t worry because there are very few structural issues you have to be careful about.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
