When it comes to choosing the best window style for your home, you need to consider the architectural style of your house. Your windows, after all, are an aesthetic set piece as much as they are a functional addition to your home. Read on as BEE Window® discusses how to pick the best window style.
Seamless Design Between Windows and Architecture
Some windows are better suited for traditional homes, and vice-versa. The way to determine this is to look at the size of the glass panes and see how intricate the window design is. Bow and bay windows, for example, are better installed on traditional homes due to their physical design.
For replacement windows for contemporary homes, we recommend going with sliding and double-hung windows. These are arguably the “plainest” looking windows out there, but the minimalist design best fits more modern homes when functionality is the priority instead of visuals.
Your Choice Also Depends on Utility
While aesthetics are your priority, you shouldn’t forget to base your choice on the utility of the windows. Some windows boast higher ventilation and insulation properties than others. Double-hung windows, for example, have the tightest airseal by virtue of their design. So if you’re looking for a more energy-efficient window, pick this over the others.
