Choosing Windows that Complement Your Home

Replacing your windows can boost the look, feel, climate, and even the resale value of your home – which is why it’s so important to select ones that best complement all your needs. While your window company can recommend certain styles, it helps to familiarize yourself with the various types beforehand. That way, you’ll feel absolutely confident with your decision when installation day comes around.

Exterior Considerations

New windows can drastically affect the outside appearance of any building, especially if the current ones are noticeably old, damaged or hazy. However, you don’t just want to select any standard windows. Instead, consider how it will match with your home’s existing style and color palette. If your home is a contemporary build, for example, you might opt for large picture windows for a sleek look that perfectly frames the view outside. And if you live in a Tudor or Craftsman-style home, perhaps casement or double-hung windows would be a better fit.

It might help to look around at your neighbor’s windows and take note of what you like and don’t like. Do they have single-hung, bay, garden, slider windows, or geometric windows? Once you’ve narrowed it down, you can also consider adding decorative elements, like unique designs and shapes. And finally, keep in mind where the replacement windows are going to be. You might have different needs for second-floor windows compared to first-floor windows, and for bathroom windows compared to living room windows.

Interior Considerations

How your home looks from the curb is important, but so is the look on the inside. Would the color and style of the new windows complement your interiors? Plus, don’t forget to consider how the windows are going to open, as well as any other benefits you might be looking for. Most modern windows are designed to be more durable and easier to clean than older versions, and some are built with extra climate control abilities, too.

Whether you want windows with excellent insulation to keep you warm in the winter, windows that can let in lots of natural light, or windows that shield against the elements, including UV rays, browse through the different types to find ones that check off all your requirements.
