Different types of windows exhibit different visual characteristics. You need to use the right kind of window for your home’s specific style. Spanish Colonial Revival is one of the most popular home styles in New Mexico, and Renewal by Andersen® can provide the best window types for this house style.
The Spanish Colonial Revival Style
In 1915, the Panama-California Exposition in San Diego featured several exhibit halls in this style. This quickly made it popular and it spread around the country. Spanish Colonial Revival style homes are eclectic and combine many Mediterranean touches. Spanish Baroque, Gothic, and Moorish elements influence this style. It typically features elegant curves and arches, white stucco walls and exterior, terracotta roof tile, and ornamental iron work.
Spanish Colonial Revival Style Windows
The quintessential windows for Spanish Colonial Revival style homes are French casement windows. Each individual casement window is tall and narrow, with horizontal muntins dividing the windows into panes. Wide casement windows can also have a vertical grille that divides the pattern. Aside from casement windows, you can sometimes find double hung windows in Spanish Colonial Revival homes. This is the result of adapting the home style to regions other than Florida and the Southwestern states.
Window Color Schemes
This home style usually features a light-colored stucco exterior with a red Mission or Spanish style roof. It also has dark-colored wrought iron grillwork on balconies, windows, and doors. Dark brown is an excellent choice for windows in this style. The window trim, sash, and frame are usually one color to contrast with the exterior. Other possible colors include dark green, dark red, white, and light blue.
