5 Clever Ways to Decorate Your Windows

Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois’ windows are inherently eye-catching. They have slim frames to provide more glass area and capture larger views. Our double hung and sliding units are available in different configurations, while our specialty windows come in over a dozen shapes.

Although they’re naturally charming, they also lend themselves to customization and are suitable for numerous decorative solutions. Here are five best ways to make our replacement windows even more enchanting:

1. Mix Colors

With 49 color combinations, our windows can easily enhance the look of your home décor, inside and out. We offer nine exterior and six interior colors as well as three stainable, real-wood interior choices. You can render your new windows subtly stunning with light hues or make them pop with something bold.

2. Be Artistic With Grilles

Whether you want to nail your home’s iconic window grille design or bring an original idea to life, we can make it happen. While we specialize in popular patterns, including colonial, prairie and farmhouse, we custom-craft any conceivable visual concept too.

3. Don’t Forget About Hardware Finish

In addition to our standard finishes (white, canvas and stone), our casement, picture, sliding, specialty and double hung windows are available in Estate™ Collection hardware options. Each distinctive metallic finish in this impressive selection has unmistakable character and is designed to withstand the test of time. Our chrome, brass and nickel options are impervious to corrosion and tarnish, while the patina of our bronze finishes grows lovelier over time.

4. Add Personality to Glass

Do you love the beauty of bare glass but hate the loss of privacy? Double-down on translucence. Add a pattern to any of our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass solutions to block the view, while still letting the light in. You can choose from our Obscure, Fern, Cascade, and Reed designs.

5. Use Treatments

Coverings bring more style not only to windows but also to the rest of the space. While they’re mainly used for aesthetic purposes, they are likewise useful for practical reasons. They raise privacy when desired, and filter out excessive sunshine.

But then again, some units require unique accessories. For instance, bow and bay window systems usually need a curved rod to accommodate multiple curtain panels in a variety of fabrics.

"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!"
