When investing in new windows, one of your prime considerations should be how well a window style suits the overall design of your home. If you live in a contemporary home, you’ll likely choose a different style of window than someone who has a traditional home.
In this post, we share four window styles that work especially well in contemporary homes.
Sliding windows are an excellent choice for ultra-modern homes as they feature large glass panels that pair well with the home’s minimalist architecture. Sliding windows slide open instead of swinging open like a casement window. They’re easy to operate and clean, making them a great choice for people looking for a functional, low-maintenance window.
Casement windows, despite widely installed in classic homes, can work just as well in modern properties. Just like sliding windows, they typically have minimalist looks, which allow them to blend with the rest of the architecture. Because they swing wide open like a door, they work particularly well in moisture-prone areas of the home that need excellent ventilation, like the kitchen or bathroom.
Picture windows are a staple in many contemporary homes. Picture windows are inoperable (meaning they can’t be opened), so their primary function is aesthetic. They can be used to frame beautiful outdoor views, making great focal points for living rooms and dining areas.
The double-hung is arguably the most versatile window style. Its simple design works well in modern homes. Just like sliding and casement windows, this window style is an excellent choice if you want more ventilation in your home.
