Does My Home Need Matching Windows?

There surely are factors that make a home well-coordinated and pleasant-looking. Apart from the colors your interiors have and the appliances you own, your windows also are important for the entire household aesthetics. One thing many people ask themselves is whether having matching windows is necessary. As a help, we’ll answer that question in this post.

Matching Windows

The front doesn’t have to affect the other sides of the house. It is always necessary to ensure that the front looks inviting and pleasing to visitors. For some, that means a traditional and symmetrical approach, especially in a neighborhood where a specific architecture is mandated by code. However, the pattern of windows does not necessarily have to be duplicated on all the other sides of the exterior. What is urged is to keep the treatment of windows consistent, including the basic type, trim and grille patterns. This is to avoid having an uncoordinated look.

Window style combinations. The most important home improvement rule is to never hesitate in exploring and thinking out of the box. Experts say the primary point of the mix-and-match approach is to implement various functions and operating styles. It does not mean your exterior windows have to appear dissimilar. Remember that you have a wide range of materials, colors, textures, and other options across window styles. While it is not necessary for every window unit to sport the same materials or design, make sure to select combinations that create one cohesive look.

Always keep comfort in mind. Your windows should respond to the function of the rooms as well as the orientation of the house to the wind and sun. Pro-tip:  if you know in which direction the prevailing wind blows, you can increase the amount of operable glass in that area, allowing for more passive air. This allows you to cut down on air-conditioning bills and get natural ventilation.
