Different homes have different architectural styles. Whether you are a Renaissance lover or a fan of the Victorian era, each design requires that the different components of the home comply with the overall style. This includes the windows installed, from the type to the color. Renewal by Andersen of Dallas and Fort Worth discusses various home styles and the windows that go best with them.
A typical style for homes in the south, ranches are often single-story homes with wide-open floor plans. The emphasis for ranch homes should be on a picturesque view of the outdoors. Horizontal window types, such as casement or sliding windows, are perfect for ranch homes.
Straight out of a fairy tale, Tudor homes have distinctively medieval architecture. Dark colors accentuate the window frames, so consider brown or grey shades. Double-hung windows fit this architectural design best, giving the home an elegant and stately aura.
Victorian homes involve large pillars and symmetrical roofs. The doors commonly found in these types of architecture give off a solemn air, so brighten up the room with bay and double-hung windows. They can easily fit the walls without ruining the symmetry and can blend well with the wood finish of the siding.
Modern architecture focuses on clean lines and an organic overall appearance. Because of this, specialty windows with custom designs work best. Some of the more lavish modern homes feature large picture windows since they give the viewer an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
