While modern style homes are famous for large expanses of glass, smaller windows still play an important role. Small windows have the potential to add focus, relief, and whimsy to a home’s façade. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix gives four design ideas so you can use small windows to their full potential.
1. For attention – As an expert in window replacement, we recommend using small windows to break the pattern of large windows in your modern home’s exterior. When you juxtapose small windows against larger ones, they naturally draw the eye. In particular, they stand out in modern homes with simple and unvarnished exteriors.
2. For privacy – A small casement window fits rooms that require privacy, like bathrooms. When you place them high up on a wall, they will let in plenty of natural light without exposing the room. We recommend using multiple small windows in a room if you are able. They can make a room feel bright, airy, and cheerful.
3. In groups – Using our small gliding windows in groups can make your exterior look more dramatic or interesting. For example, small windows look great when they are set deep into the exterior walls. Multiple deep windows can look charming because they emphasize your home’s building materials. You can also go for unorthodox window groupings with small windows.
4. For good views – A small window can provide an excellent view if they are eye level. This gives you the chance to provide views where a bigger window might just get in the way. For example, adding a small window on top of the stairs. You can also use small windows to frame interesting scenes to serve as highlights. Placing them in bathrooms can provide a bit of green to the interior if they overlook some trees.
These are just some of the ways you can use small windows to make your home look more appealing. Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix provides custom-built replacement windows that can fit any home.
