The architectural design of most modern and contemporary homes means that when it comes to window replacement, you can’t just choose any kind of window. Most windows are generally a better fit for traditional homes, especially the ones that have intricate designs.
So what window styles best fit your modern home? Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix discusses more.
Industrial Modern Style: Bigger Windows are Better
The industrial modern house style is arguably the most popular contemporary home, and the rules for replacement windows here are rather simple: the bigger the window, the better. For modern homes, you want to take a minimalist approach with simple windows to match the architectural design.
We recommend choosing casement windows in this case. Their full glass panes let in a lot of the exterior views and daylight in and also force you to limit your wall decor. The windows, after all, serve as static decoration themselves.
Expanding Living Space
A popular strategy when it comes to modern homes and windows is installing large, floor-to-ceiling windows on your living space. It has the welcome effect of making your home appear larger than usual since the window acts as a seamless transition to the outdoors.
The best window styles here are either picture or gliding windows. You can’t go wrong with either, but we recommend the latter because they have a better airtight seal and they’re easier to operate. Installing these will help you increase your floor space without investing on a room extension!
Fret not if you’re worried about letting too much light in. All our windows use High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes that reduce UV light while still letting in ample daylight. It also guarantees that your windows remain well insulated and ventilated all year round.
