Combining different window styles in your home can add texture and character to your space. However, it’s not always easy to decide which styles would look best together.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, a top local window contractor, shares some tips on mixing and matching different window styles.
Casement windows can be paired with a picture window to create a bay window. You just need to ensure you have enough space, as bay windows jut outward, creating a sort of a nook. Place a pair of casement windows on either side of a non-operable picture window, and enjoy the best of both worlds–a panoramic view along with all the ventilation you need.
Alternatively, you can also flank your picture window with double-hung replacement windows. An advantage of double-hung windows is that you can open both sashes at the same time and enjoy maximum ventilation. This window style is also very versatile, working well in both traditional and contemporary homes.
Bow windows can be thought of as the bigger cousin of bay windows. They curve outward in a graceful arc, unlike bay windows, which are more angular. To form your bow window, you can install three picture windows in the middle and “book-end” them with either casement or double-hung windows on the sides.
