How to Match Windows and Rooms

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.

 Match Windows and Rooms

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.

"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!!!"
