Your home’s windows are one of the best ways to freshen up its look, adding value and curb appeal. At Window World of Western Chicago, we offer a wide range of options for your replacement windows. With so many options, it can be tough to decide which windows are right for your home.
When it comes to choosing your replacement windows, you need to make sure your home’s windows match its architectural style. Our team of window replacement experts at Window World have put together this helpful guide for choosing the best window for your home’s unique architecture.
1. Determine Your Home’s Style.
Depending on the style of your home, it may be more or less important to rigidly stick to a historical architecture style. If your home is a Queen Anne or Victorian home, installing modern windows would be an architectural crime. If your home is modern or contemporary, minimalism is key. These days, Craftsman homes fit more into the “anything goes” category. In keeping with the customizable ethic of Craftsman, many homeowners and designers are using these lovely bungalows as a blank canvas for a wide range of architectural styles.
Our windows are available in a wide range of styles:
● Awning or casement
● Single-hung window
● Basement hoppers
● In-swing egress
● Various architectural shapes and styles
2. Choose Your Color Palette.
Like your windows, the color palette your home uses should be well suited to its architectural style. That’s not to say you will need to rigidly keep to the prescribed suggestions for your architectural style. Modern design seems to prove again and again that color can continue to defy expectations with excellent results. The main thing to remember is that the color you use in your windows should blend well with the rest of your home’s style. For example, with Georgian or colonial style homes, you may wish to integrate woodgrains that can be customized to the white look of the era.
Our windows come are available in these exterior colors:
● Neutrals: Black, white, almond, or cream
● Bold metallics: Silver or bronze
● Earth tones: Clay, cocoa, forest green
3. Determine the Window’s Purpose.
One of the biggest determining factors when it comes to your window’s architectural style is the purpose the window is meant for. For a room where windows are needed to add light but preserve privacy, your home’s style may determine the type of window you install. Frosted glass could be a spectacular addition to a Victorian, Georgian, or colonial home.
Our wide range of window options includes:
● Sliding windows
● Bay windows
● Bow windows
● Garden windows
● Egress windows
● Privacy windows
● And more
