Things to Remember about Window Design

If you’re planning to replace your old, damaged windows, there are plenty of things to consider. With so many different window styles and designs, it can be overwhelming to choose the right kind. Take note that windows play a major role in your home’s design scheme. They reflect the architecture of your house and impact the aesthetic appeal of your interiors. 

Interior Window Design

Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island shares a few things to remember when choosing replacement windows with your home interiors in mind.

Traditional Style

For a traditional home, multiple-light or double hung windows are the way to go. If you’re looking for ways to add a classic, old-school look to your room, you may want to consider a leaded-glass window with diamond-shaped panes. Moreover, when choosing patterns for the grille design, you can go with either a classic or more modern style.

Contemporary Look

Casement windows, which can be opened from side hinges with a crank or lever, are ideal for contemporary homes. For a transitional look, you may consider adding grilles to them, while for a modernist one, solid panes of glass will do. Casement windows also provide a clean look with a minimal decorating style as well as the option of natural ventilation without obstructing the outdoor view.

Illumination Features

Windows bring large amounts of natural light into your home. Nevertheless, there may be times when this is too much. The early morning sunlight, for instance, can be harsh when you have just woken, making your home feel uncomfortable instead of peaceful. Curtains can control the problem of excess natural lighting, but the use of fabric in kitchens is not a clever idea. 

Special Shapes

Aside from conventional windows, there’s also the option of specialty windows. Perhaps you don’t care for traditional styles and want to explore other style choices. Or perhaps your current wall space requires a unique shape or size. At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we offer a diverse line of specialty windows that come in a variety of shapes, ranging from triangles and semicircles to pentagons and octagons. Our experienced consultants have the knowledge and skill to find the ideal fit for your needs.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
