One of the biggest mistakes you could make when choosing windows is picking designs that don’t match your house’s architecture.
Almost every home style traditionally uses certain window types embellished with a specific grille pattern. Getting it wrong can reduce your property’s curb appeal and drive down its value.
To ensure that your made-to-order windows (and doors) are historically accurate, let’s explore the quintessential designs of the Equality State’s most common architectural styles.
Ranch-style houses are synonymous with casement windows with one horizontal grille. The simplistic appearance of such units serves a utilitarian purpose of bringing lots of sunlight inside the house.
Further, some ranches feature picture windows. If you want one, adorn it with multiple horizontal lines to be simpatico to crank units.
Craftsman Bungalow houses use casement and double-hung windows.
Use a grille pattern with one horizontal line that visually divides the glass in half. In addition, complement it with three vertical ones that turn the upper section into a trio of rectangular panes.
Any trusted window company familiar with this home style will attest that full-length windows are characteristic of the Mid-Century Modern architecture. Its glass units almost never have any grilles in hopes of building a seamless connection between indoors and outdoors. But if you’d like to use some, you can get away with a cross pattern.
By and large, contemporary houses love casement windows and are devoid of grilles. These properties like to group average-sized units together that can occupy the entire length of the wall In lieu of massive unbroken glass.
