A contemporary home focuses more on the simpler things – a simpler design, focus on functionality over aesthetics, and a generally minimalist approach to aesthetics. So if you’re shopping around for new windows, you need to consider these design rules. So which window style and design will best fit a contemporary home? BEE Window® discusses more.
Simpler Styles Rule
For contemporary homes, simpler designed windows are the better choice. This is so that you adhere to the set architectural style and design that your house dictates. Contemporary windows also usually have larger glass panes – good examples include double-hung windows, sliding, and casement windows.
The Bigger, the Better
When you’re choosing windows for your home, focus on getting larger ones. Contemporary homes are minimalist so large windows take up more wall space, and this reduces the risk of cluttering your living spaces with unnecessary decor. Large windows are also great if you recently had porch conversions done since they help extend your floor space.
Function Before Aesthetics
Finally, the functionality of your new windows should have greater emphasis than its overall aesthetics. This isn’t a problem though since most contemporary window designs are less intricate and decorative. Our range of windows boast glass panes with an ENERGY STAR® rating, so you can be sure that they’re the energy-efficient choice for your home. Our double-hung windows, for example, boast highly airtight sealing that helps improve your home’s innate ventilation and insulation.
