Owning your first home is one of the most exciting milestones in your life. With the weather starting to turn warmer and more humid, you shouldn’t have to rely on your air conditioning unit to keep your home cool as spring starts turning into summer. Here is some advice on how to find the right replacement window designs when you need them most.
Custom Made Windows
If you’re a homeowner, then you might understand the value of curb appeal. One way to boost your home’s curb appeal is to install some replacement windows. Replacement windows come in a variety of styles, but you could always choose to have them custom made, so they reflect your unique personality. Think about the architectural style of your house, along with what the trim looks like, what you find appealing, and how much of your home improvement budget you can put towards this project. Then, your next step will be to decide which type of vinyl replacement window you would like to have installed.
Types of Replacement Windows
Double-Hung Replacements: You will recognize double-hung replacement windows by their distinctive rectangular shape. Opening and closing these windows is easy because they have two sashes and all you need to do is slide them to the position you want them in.
Sliding Replacements: A sliding replacement window isn’t that much different from its double-hung counterpart. They can feature more than two sashes, but unlike double-hung replacements windows, they open side-to-side instead of up and down. Essentially, they are double-hung windows placed on their sides.
Casement Replacements: A casement replacement window features a hinge. On this hinge, they can go left or right instead of up and down.
Bows and Bays: You might not be clear on the difference between these two similar types of replacement windows. Bay windows feature three panels, while bow windows are rounded and have multiple sashes; even though you might see models with anywhere between three and six sashes, you’ll most often find them with five sashes.
No window replacement is complete without embellishments and adornments to help the new windows stand out. Find colors that suit the other furnishings in the room. Also, with many more brighter days ahead, prepare your home for summer by allowing in even more fresh air and natural light. Using darker colors and textiles will reflect the light while choosing light and softer colors will invite the light in instead.
