Windows can improve the way your living room looks and works. With countless design possibilities, putting the right elements together is always tricky.
To custom-design your replacement windows to perfection, use expert tips from Homecraft® Inc.:
1. Honor Tradition
Most homes, especially traditional ones, follow a particular set of architectural rules. Adhering to them will accentuate your home’s distinctive character. But if you do the opposite, you might decrease its curb appeal.
Considering that living rooms often face the street, their wood or vinyl windows will be featured, front and center. As much as possible, choose the style historically associated with your home’s architecture. For instance, Georgian homes and Capes are synonymous with double-hung windows while Prairie-style homes often feature casements. For architectural authenticity, choose the right grille pattern too.
2. Go Big
Living rooms are usually the biggest of all indoor areas, making them the natural location of the largest windows at home. Units with large glass areas never fail to open up the space and catch an abundant amount of sun. Since the front doesn’t have to determine the kind of windows the other sides should have, feel free to choose different styles.
Do keep privacy, passive solar heating and glare in mind when installing large windows.
3. Don’t Pick Just Any Color
Windows can make or break the design of your space inside and out. When choosing frame and trim colors, consider your home’s style and other hues in its current interior and exterior palette. When in doubt, neutral colors are your safest bets.
4. Add Shutters
Incorporating exterior shutters into your vinyl or wood window installation project is a sound decision. More than just enhancing your home’s aesthetics, shutters contribute to weather resistance, light control, privacy and security.
