Preserving Your Home’s Architectural Style With Our Windows

Your windows, no matter how durable or well-maintained, will have to be replaced at some point, and when this time comes, you might worry your new units will undermine your home’s existing style.

This doesn’t mean you should just choose the same design, though. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, the replacement windows expert, discusses window styles that can preserve your home’s look and add interest to its design:

Bay Windows

Bay windows are unique in that they add space to your interior, which can be transformed into a cozy window seat. This feature can make modern homes feel homey, and if you add bold-patterned curtains and a bookcase nearby, you can create your personal sanctuary.

Since bay windows have a charming appeal, they would work well with traditional homes. You can enhance this vibe by choosing rustic finishes and hardware to complement your bay window. Choosing a monochromatic-toned frame and narrow grilles also help create the same effect.

Double Hung Windows

This window style would be perfect for traditional homes when paired with dramatic floor-length curtains. That said, double hung windows could also work for modern homes because of their minimalistic style and moveable sashes. Although they have a certain traditional appeal, double hung windows are hardly outdated.

Renewal by Andersen creates this classical window style with durable Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® energy-efficient glass for superior performance. This means that when you turn to us for new double hung windows, you can enjoy a boost in your home’s value, excellent energy savings, and improved curb appeal.

"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!"
