Yes, you can change your window styles when you have your windows replaced. Changing windows styles can be done in many alternate ways. You can choose to go with larger windows, new windows in eye-catching shapes or even windows that just open differently.
If you already have a plan of how you want to change your window styles, a Renewal by Andersen representative is available to walk you through how to make it happen. If you aren’t sure what changes you want to make, but know that you want a change; a Renewal by Andersen representative can go over the options available for your home.
Window Styles Come in All Shapes
Tired of rectangular windows? You don’t have to be stuck with that shape any longer as windows now come in every shape you can imagine and would want in your home. You can find windows available in the shape of:
- Half circles
- Quarter circles
- Right triangles
Changing Window Styles with How Windows Open
Many people don’t really give much thought to the many ways that windows can open. There are crank-out windows, gliding windows and double-hung windows. Each open to ventilate your home a different way; which also means they each add a different look to your home as well.
Crank-out windows have a handle that is used to “crank” open the window. The window can open sideways or up, but it will always stick out from the building.
Gliding windows open from the side. The windows are on a track and when you open them, one of the windows slides to the side behind another installed window. They always remain flush with the side of the house.
Double-hung windows open by sliding the bottom pane up behind the top pane or sliding the top pane down in front of the bottom pain.
From Small to Open by Changing Window Styles
Another way to change windows styles and the look of your home is to replace little windows with larger ones. A home will look vastly different when you replace a double-hung window with a picture window that is triple the size. Not only will the outside of the house look fresh, the additional light and open feeling will make the interior look enlarged as well.
You can also change window styles by putting in multiple windows in a space where a single, large, picture window used to be.
The options for window styles are endless and changing to a style you are happier with is easier than you think. To learn more about our varied options, schedule an in-home consultation today!
