One of the best things about custom window replacement is the opportunity to get creative. For example, combining different window styles is a great way to improve the overall appeal of your home while showcasing your personality. It’s also an opportunity to improve the amount of natural light streaming into the rooms of your home without compromising energy efficiency.
Here are some tips on choosing the best window style combinations:
The style of the replacement windows will rely on two factors: the type of window being installed, and the design of the frame. Casement windows are a safe bet for traditional-style homes, while contemporary designs often mix it up with more space-efficient windows. Sliding and double-hung windows are good options, as they feature fewer lattices for a more streamlined aesthetic.
When it comes to pairing window types together, you have many options. A common design choice is to install picture windows flanked by smaller operable replacement windows. This set-up helps maximize natural light and ventilation.
A common pairing is a bigger picture window combined with one or two double-hung windows, which yields a panoramic view. The sliding sashes of either of the operable windows will provide ample ventilation without ruining the design. This arrangement can create a stunning focal point in any room of your home.
