Matching All Your Windows: Yes or No?

You would think a small investment like window replacement is a piece of cake. But as with most home improvement projects, it will require careful planning—especially when it comes to aesthetic appeal. At one point, you’ll have to decide whether it’s a better idea to match all your home’s windows, or switch things up. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta, your dependable doors and windows contractor, help you make up your mind.

Yes, If You’re Going for a More Traditional Look

Most homeowners base their choice of side windows on those at the front. This allows for a classic, more symmetrical look. Doing it this way also ensures your home won’t look out of place in a neighborhood that favors a particular style, or have a rigid code. If you have a Colonial or Craftsman home, for instance, the traditional window option would be double-hung. In Queen Anne homes, bay and bow windows are practically the staple, while casements are preferable in Mediterranean or Spanish Mission homes.

No, You Don’t Actually Have To

Here’s some good news, however. You are free to choose replacement windows in different shapes and sizes, but with a few important considerations. For example, avoid picking windows that are exceedingly different in appearance—like placing an elaborate bay window adjacent to an ultramodern sliding window. Instead, make them consistent through careful choices in trim color, grille pattern, and hardware finish. This allows for a more cohesive look, even when your windows are different in size or shape.

At Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta, we offer a variety of window customization options that can help you achieve this consistent look. Check out our:
