A window replacement offers the chance not just to improve your home’s energy efficiency but also to give it an aesthetic makeover. However, with so many styles and designs available, some homeowners may feel overwhelmed when trying to make a purchasing decision. If this is what you’re going through, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland is here to help with a few window design tips below.
For a traditionally designed home, we recommend double-hung windows. They’ll complement the traditional design of your home, and you can also choose from several grille patterns depending on your preferences. For example, a window with diamond-shaped grilles can serve as a focal point that gives your home Old-World elegance.
If you’re looking for a fresh and modern style for your window replacement, consider the clean look of casement windows, which open from side hinges with a crank or lever. These types of windows can also be adorned with grilles for a more transitional look, or with solid panes of glass if you’re going for a more modern look. Casement windows are typically used in conjunction with picture windows to offer both style and function. You’ll benefit from the minimalist style and expansive view of the picture windows, while still having the option of ventilation provided by the casement windows.
You can incorporate specialty windows like bay windows or Palladian shapes to maximize the interior design of your home. A bay window can double as a comfortable reading or dining nook. If you have a larger traditional home, Palladian windows can bring the space warmth and charm.
