Browsing the web, you may have seen different styles of windows, from casement to double-hung windows, and even doors with glass areas. You can see them displayed in many different photos, perfectly matching their surroundings, homes amazingly accentuated by these little glass boxes.
Though you may want to have a new set of windows at home, you just can’t seem to decide which one will fit your own dwelling. Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico is here to help you decide on the kind of window you might need.
Here are some examples of homes and what type of windows are a perfect match for each.
The American Farmhouse
The good ol’ classic homestead. Built around the mid-1800s, this Victorian-age dwelling has been a staple choice for families for almost two centuries. For this home, your window contractor would often use a classic double-hung window, as it compliments the traditional feel of the architecture. Accent windows are also a choice if you want to break tradition without going out of style.
The French Eclectic Style
A French original architectural style, the French Eclectic was brought home to America after World War I and has slowly evolved to fit the local standards. For this kind of home, we recommend using either casement windows or double-hung windows, to take full advantage of a head arch design to further push your house’s French charm.
This home blends the traditional industrial design with some mixture of a factory texture, like exposed wood or corrugated metal, making it a big hit for most urban settlers. Industrial modern style homes are more lenient in using a custom window replacement. Large spaces covered by the glass gives your rooms more space to breathe and look more spacious.
