Apart from their energy-efficiency features and durability, it’s also important that your replacement windows match the style of your home. If you live in a Cape Cod or Colonial style home, the selection process may be a little easier. After all, most homes are built in these styles so it’s likely you’ve seen what type of window matches the home.
What if you live in a mid century modern home, though? Choosing a window for a modern home design may be tricky for most people but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois discusses the four best window styles for a mid century modern home.
Casement and Awning Windows – One of the popular choices of window styles for a mid century modern home is the combination of casement and awning windows. This combination manages to add to the aesthetic appeal of a modern home while providing you with ample amounts of ventilation. The windows can also be arranged in symmetrical or irregular patterns, allowing them to seamlessly fit the designs of a modern home.
Sliding Windows – Sliding windows are another good choice for a mid century home since they can give you the natural light and ventilation any home needs thanks to their expansive glass panes. The minimalist design of the window style also allows you to have an excellent view of the outdoors from the comfort of your home.
Picture Windows – If you’re looking for ventilation, a picture window may not be the choice for you. But while they’re inoperable, they can bring natural light in, allowing you to illuminate the home in multiple angles if placed correctly.
Wood and Aluminum – Since the mid century modern style home tends to emphasize the material that is being used, dark wood or natural aluminum windows are other common choices in this style.
