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.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
