4 Home Designs and Their Matching Windows

The overall design of your home has a huge role to play in your window replacement project. As not all window types work well with certain architectural styles, failing to consider this factor can make your new windows look unseemly. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois help you explore four of these popular home styles and their ideal window partners:

1. Ranch Home and Picture Windows

This one-story structure, usually long and narrow, stretches across the homeowner’s lot in an “L,” “U,” or rectangular shape. Its minimalist layout makes it suitable with our picture windows in Peoria, IL. With their expansive glass and elegant framing, these windows will let you enjoy the sight of beautiful landscapes and panoramic views.

2. Craftsman Home and Casement Windows

A nature-inspired ambiance radiates from this classic American home style. It typically uses a warm wood finish and earth shades. A shallow pitched roof, complemented by different types of materials like brick, is one of its most notable features. The simplistic design and functionality of casement windows make them ideal additions to emphasize the home’s impressive structure.

3. Modern Home and Specialty Windows

Unlike other styles, contemporary and modern homes often display an asymmetrical form. They are well-known for their unique sizes, shapes, and layouts. Our specialty replacement windows in Peoria, IL, complement them best for their different configurations.

4. Georgian Home and Double-Hung Windows

This popular architecture style often has a symmetrical front with openings across multiple stories. Its classic cornices ornamented with carvings and medallions are some of the things that make this style stand out. Consider double-hung windows to match its traditional theme. You can choose from our selection of grille patterns to add flair to the new units.

Your home is unique, so it’s important that you consider its design elements when looking for the right window style. Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois, the trusted name when it comes to window installation in Champaign, IL, can help you choose a matching unit for your home. Our design experts have years of experience in enhancing the aesthetics of varying home architectures using windows. Call us at (866) 693-6707 for a free in-home consultation.


"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
