Your windows reflect the architecture of your home, but they also add a certain decorative flair to the interior and enhance the look of the space. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the range of window designs on the market and don’t know where to start, here are top tips from a window specialist.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Traditional Style
Double-hung windows are a staple in traditional homes. But within that category, you can choose a particular pattern for the grille that evokes a classical feel or lean toward a more sleek, contemporary look. For Cottage-type properties, casement windows are a popular choice. Homes with a Georgian or Victorian style mainly use the traditional design of timber sash windows.
Add a Dose of Contemporary Flavor
Casements are a versatile style because they also complement modern homes. These windows add an authentic but humble feel to a room and can be easily cranked open to feel the fresh, cool breeze. Casement windows can be used along with picture windows to create a linear and minimal ornamental style.
Light Control Is Essential
Windows allow daylight into a room, but sometimes they can hog wall space, leaving you with nowhere to hang other embellishments. If you’re the type to utilize wall decorations to personalize the space you’re inhabiting, less might be more. Also, too much sunlight can make rooms extremely bright that it’s painful to the eyes. Make sure your windows help create a slightly warm, relaxing place to begin your day.
Fortunately, installing energy-efficient units and making use of window treatments can minimize the problems that come with too much light, such as harsh glare and uncomfortable heat. The direction of the sun should also be considered when placing your windows.
