A Primer on Matching Windows and Rooms

Remember, when it comes to interior and exterior design, consistency is key. If you’re considering installing new windows in a room, you need to make sure its design fits in with the room’s interior design.

Stick to Tried-and-Tested Combinations 

Certain types of windows have been traditionally used in certain architectural styles. You can never go wrong by choosing classic combinations. Listed below are some of the most popular architectural styles and the windows most suited to them:

1. Prairie-style homes – This architectural style’s defining characteristics is its use of wide spaces, low-pitched roofs and accented look. Awning windows help maintain this accented look while improving indoor ventilation.

2. Ranch or split-level homes – Picture or bay windows pair nicely with ranch-style homes’ wood and brick siding.

3. Modern homes – Sleek sliding or casement windows perfectly fit with modern minimalist homes.

4. Colonial-style homes – Traditional colonial-style homes usually have two evenly spaced double-hung windows on both sides of the front door.

Don’t Be Afraid to Add a Personal Touch

Of course, you don’t necessarily have to restrict your choices to these combinations – there’s always room for tweaking a few elements so long as the new twist elements don’t disrupt the consistency of the window design.
