Some Things to Consider when Picking a Window Style
According to the website Freshome, there are several things you should consider when choosing a window style. You should choose window styles that adhere to your home’s architectural style. Choosing windows that are commonly used for contemporary homes may not work well if you own a Tudor. You also want to decide the color scheme of your windows based on the architectural style as well. Marvin makes that easier with a variety of color schemes.
It’s also essential to decide what purpose your window is going to serve. Some windows are meant to be decorative or ornamental, some are meant to ensure that light gets into your room. Some windows are going to serve both decorative and functional purposes. Keep in mind which window styles serve your purposes and which styles don’t.
A Glimpse at Window Styles
One of the most common home windows are double-hung. These windows have two sashes that slide up and down but they don’t open out. Single-hung windows are opened from the bottom, but the top part remains stationary, according to HGTV. Casement windows open outward. They operate by the turn of a crank.
This Old House points out that your home can be vulnerable to wind and rain. Awning windows swing from a hinge located at the top of the window and swing out, while glider or slider windows have slashes that slide on horizontal tracks. They tend to be found on more contemporary homes. Marvin also offers a variety of specialty designs. Let us know what you’re looking for.
