Windows play a critical role in a home’s design and function. High-quality windows can help you achieve three objectives: enhancing curb appeal; creating a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors; and protecting your home from the elements while allowing light and air inside your home. When planning a window replacement, follow these tips from Renewal by Andersen® of Central PA to make the most of the project.
Don’t Be Afraid to Leave Tradition Behind
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to tradition. However, modern technology has redefined how windows are made. Older window placement plans were made during a time when glass panels were expensive to produce and homes were not well insulated. This is why traditional home styles like colonial and Victorian homes tend to feature smaller windows. However, even if you have a traditional home, there’s no reason you can’t choose to install larger windows.
Be Mindful That Every Side of Your Home Is Different
Consistency is a design element that’s very appealing, but this is more of a guideline than a hard and fast rule. For example, your home’s facade does not have to look the same as the sides or the back of your home. You can choose a different style of replacement windows for the back of your home than the front, and your home’s appearance will not suffer.
Comfort Above All
Aesthetics are important, but comfort is even more critical. For example, picture windows are ideal if you want to capture a panoramic view, but might not be the most practical choice for areas of your home where ventilation is a concern, like the kitchen or bathroom. Think about how you use each room in your home when choosing window styles.
