Replacement Window Styles – Things to Consider

If you’ve concluded that it’s time for a window replacement project in your home, there are many different options to choose from. One of the most important decisions you’ll make when getting started on your window replacement project is the window style. There are numerous window styles available today, each of which can influence the beauty of each room in your home.

Choosing the Look and Functionality That Suits Your Needs

The window styles that will work best for each room in your home will depend on a variety of factors, including which direction the windows are facing, the style of your home, and your personal preferences. Here are the top things to consider when choosing your replacement window styles:

Ventilation Preferences

If getting fresh air is a priority in a specific room, choosing a window style that maximizes ventilation is ideal. Casement windows allow for the entire window to be open at once, while double-hung windows allow you to open the window from the top and the bottom at the same time. Awning windows are also a great choice that you can keep open during a light rain, as the window provides a shield that prevents water from entering.

Size of the Room

Some window styles are better suited for larger, more expansive rooms, while others have a more space-efficient design. For larger window openings, a bay or bow window will allow in plenty of light and add an eye-catching element to the room. Meanwhile, single-hung and double-hung windows are a better option in places where space is limited.

Location of the Window

If you have a window you’d like to be able to open and close but it’s in a difficult-to-reach area, certain window styles will work better than others. For instance, casement windows feature an easy-to-use crank to open and close which can be ideal over a kitchen sink and similar spaces.

Architecture of Your Home

If you have a historic home or one with traditional architecture, you may want to opt for more traditional window styles like single-hung or double-hung to create a cohesive appearance. You may also consider adding a classic grid design that will tie into the aesthetic of your home. Similarly, if your home has a more modern style, you may want grid-free slider or casement windows that will better suit your home’s aesthetics.

Lighting Considerations

Whether you have a room that could use more natural sunlight or you’re trying to get the brightness under control, the window style you choose can impact the amount of sunlight you let in. Bay and bow windows, along with garden windows, allow light to enter from various angles and can help brighten up your space.
