Not a lot of us will somehow think or at least notice all that comfort around us – before it disappears somewhere. And this seems to be very natural – we «don’t see» what we used to see day after day for years. Or brain simply ignores this information, giving a place for something new to come around. Today we are going to talk about how to choose the right exterior window style for your home.
- Style as it is
The first thing people should pay attention to – is the style of the house / apartment / building itself. What do you see?
- A loft?
- A studio-like small apartment with wooden floors?
- A penthouse?
- A classic mid-American family house?
All these should immediately give you a clue of where to look for the right window style. Maybe the proper texture / material / and color is somewhere out there? Well, you have to go out and find then!
- A quick word form manufacturer!
Now put yourself into a place of a modern window manufacturer. They work days and nights to bring us millions of varieties – and you are still not satisfied? Sound strange, because visiting at least ONE local home supply shop may take your headache away for many years. Just order their catalog and study it during the nearest weekend!

Also! Do not forget about the functionality. Leave all these styles and colors to your girlfriend – the window needs to perform its basic functions: open / close / protect from wind / protect from water / protect from sunlight. Check, check, check? Good then. We can move on.
- Styles and colors again and again… And again
Again we are forced to get back to colors and style – the girlfriend is still around, huh? A lot of architectural pros say that different colors (if they match of course) – always help to highlight the style. And you know what – they are 100% right. If you chose a wrong color because at that moment you thought it’s the right one – you gain a «topic for discussion» for the next 10-15 years at best. You really need this? Chose the color THOROUGHLY!
- First things first.
Another important thing in choosing the proper window is the amount of the air it can let inside. If this amount is not sufficient enough – you probably made the wrong turn. This is also about the windows that will never be used. Why pay for the unnecessary moving parts – if there’s a possibility to by everything in one solid piece? By the way, many home owners learned how to get benefits from the both of these types.
- Does it look good?
Think one more time whether it is going to look at least not awful together with the whole composition? The front door, the porch, the railing – all of this should HARMONIZE with the thing you have just bought, otherwise you simply ruin the composition and again – the new window will become an everlasting punishment in the face of the bloody-minded neighbors. After all – like we always say: «If you can’t do it yourself – call a specialist! »
