Combining Different Window Styles

Combining different window types in one creative piece is a growing trend among homeowners who want a boost in their home’s appeal and functionality. Rather than gracing your home with only one window style, try rolling other units in to enjoy their unique benefits.

Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, the leading name when it comes to replacement windows in Bloomington, IL, shares the boons of window combinations:

Pool Their Features

Each window type has its own unique qualities. Not all of them deliver the same amount of daylight, insulation, ventilation, and outdoor views. If a single window type doesn’t contain all of the features you are looking for, try matching it with a complementing unit.

For instance, our bay window in Champaign, IL, has a fixed middle pane that doesn’t allow fresh outside breeze to enter. If you choose two casement units for its sides, you can enjoy a refreshing cross-ventilation. Additionally, these windows add more function to the base unit, particularly increased daylight.

Double Their Advantages

Matching windows shouldn’t only include dissimilar designs. You can also combine similar models and place them next to each other to maximize their features. One great illustration of this is creating a wall made of picture windows. With their expansive glass, they can create a strong visual connection to the outdoors. They can magnificently capture your landscape, as well. Additionally, they are our most energy-efficient units, so you can earn more energy savings.

Remodel Your Space

Integrating window varieties can transform any unused space into a focal point in your home. You can install a bow window with a double-hung as its centerpiece. This can give you an added space for different activities. Our double hung windows in Galesburg, IL, can also enhance air circulation and provide a classic ambiance to the room.

As opposed to having standalone windows, blending different styles can create a more dramatic effect in any space. You can check with our design experts at Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois for the right window combinations. Call us at (866) 693-6707 for a free in-home consultation today.


"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!"
