Windows help define the identity of every architectural style. No matter what style of architecture your home features, the right glass units can help express and accentuate its character.
In today’s post, [company_name] offers guidance on pairing your home’s architectural style with different window styles:
Double Hung or Casement Windows for Traditional Homes
Historically, Georgian, Federal, and American Farmhouse homes were built with sash units, while Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor, and Prairie styles (among others) tended to be built with crank-operated casement windows. Over time, though, certain homes became more open to change. This is why it’s not uncommon for modern Capes and Craftsman bungalows to utilize either casement or double hung windows .
Picture Windows for Modern Homes
Large, fixed windows with no grilles characterize contemporary home designs. Picture windows are the perfect choice for framing lush landscapes and admitting a generous amount of sunlight. They work well in minimalist homes, where a large window can take the place of a wall.
For ventilation and egress purposes, modern architectural styles use casement and sliding windows. These windows usually cover wide wall openings and are easy to operate.
Bay Windows for Any Home Style
Bay windows may be a trademark of Victorian architecture, but they are increasingly being installed in many other home styles. The shapely design of the bay never fails to contribute to curb appeal and expand interior real estate. The multiple glass panels of bay windows enhance daylighting and frame wonderful panoramas.
