When it comes to interior design, consistency is key. That’s why it’s important that every element in a room, especially the windows, fit in with the room’s aesthetic.
Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, your trusted window company, shares some tips on matching windows and rooms in this guide.
Stick to Tried-and-Tested Combinations
You can never go wrong with classic combinations. After all, there’s a reason why certain types of windows have been used in certain architectural styles for hundreds of years. It’s because they work so well.
Here’s an overview of some of the most common architectural styles and the windows paired with them:
Double-hung windows and Colonial-style homes – Colonial-style homes usually have two double-hung windows beside the front entry door.
Picture or bay windows and ranch or split-level-style homes – Picture or bay windows complement the wood and brick siding of Ranch or Split-level-style homes.
Awning windows and prairie-style homes – Prairie-style homes make prominent use of wide spaces and have low-pitched roofs and an accented look. Awning windows help maintain this accented look and improve indoor ventilation.
Sliding and casement windows and modern homes – The simple, straightforward design of sliding and casement windows wouldn’t be out of place in a modern home. If you want to emphasize your sliding windows’ minimalist design, we recommend choosing Fibrex® house window replacement. Fibrex is a wood-and-polymer composite with excellent durability and minimal maintenance needs. Thanks to this durability, Fibrex frames are narrower than conventional window frames but can support the same amount of glass.
Adding a Personal Touch
You can tweak these classic combinations a bit to add your own personal touch to a room. Keep in mind that you need to make sure twist elements don’t clash with the windows or the room’s design. If you’re having trouble choosing a window for a room, don’t hesitate to consult a window replacement service contractor.
