Your windows help regulate the comfort levels in your home and increase your overall energy efficiency. But they are also aesthetic pieces that can enhance or radically change the look and feel of your home. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland lists four styles of replacement windows that can help preserve your home’s architectural design.
1. Casement Windows
Casement windows are a highly popular choice because they’re extremely versatile. You can install these in both traditional and modern homes without disrupting the architectural design of the home. Apart from aesthetics, casement windows are also among the most energy efficient window styles available.
2. Gliding Windows
Gliding replacement windows work particularly well in modern-style homes. Their sleek lines and no-fuss appearance helps emphasize that minimalist aesthetic that is so characteristic of contemporary architecture.
3. Picture Windows
Picture windows are perhaps the most aesthetically versatile window style you can find. They come in all different sizes and can be customized with different hardware options. A picture window with elegant grilles works beautifully in a traditional home, while a large, expansive grille-less picture window can perfectly complement a modern home.
4. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung replacement windows are ideal for both traditional and contemporary homes. These windows are among the few window designs that can complement the look of traditional spaces and add a classic touch to more modern properties. Double hung windows are also arguably the easiest window to clean since you can open both the lower and upper sashes.
