Classic Appeal: 4 Ways to Improve Your Extended Living Space

Whether your home’s a Craftsman Bungalow or an American farmhouse, it’s difficult keeping up with architectural trends. But who says you have to? The traditional look and appeal of your classic American home is timeless. It’s actually unique these days.

Classic Appeal 4 Ways To Improve Your Extended Living Space

That doesn’t mean you can’t do something to improve its look, though, especially your home’s extended living spaces. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses four ways to do this with the right door and window design.

1. Wide Windows

You might want replacement windows to modernize your traditional home, but be careful when choosing the style. Not every window design fits a classic-looking home and picking the wrong one can radically change the aesthetics of your room.

Wider and larger windows are better in this case. We recommend double-hung or bay and bow windows. These window styles seamlessly blend with your home’s classic interior design, and allow some much needed daylight into your rooms.

2. Windows and Doors Together

Your extended living space often just features a solitary window wall or the actual patio door as the main centerpiece of its seamless design. Instead, try the two together. Frenchwood patio doors look good, for example, with large double-hung windows or floor-to-ceiling sliding ones.

3. Patio Doors and Grille Patterns

Your patio doors are another static piece that you’ll want to spruce up a bit. While most patio doors are already attractive enough, you can add a bit of flair to it by tweaking the grille patterns.

In fact, this pattern is probably the centerpiece of your extended living space’s design. There are innumerable patterns but the general rule is that the design pattern should match the interiors. So if your living space is sporting a floral look, make the door pattern highlight the same feature.

4. Door and Window Finishings

Finally, consider tweaking the actual look of the glass panes of your doors and windows. Many homeowners usually choose plain glass panes not knowing that textured glass panes for both doors and windows actually improve their aesthetic appeal. Still, it’s not all about beauty, though. Textured glass acts as a security feature too because it distorts what your interiors look like from the outside.

Keep these four tips in mind before you start looking for replacement windows or set a door installation to improve your living spaces. At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we’ll help you pick the best patio doors in Portland and Wilsonville, OR for your traditional home.
