Going the traditional route in replacing your windows? Reviving your home’s classic charm is a great way to add unique character to your home and boost your curb appeal. You can use your home’s quintessential elements to inspire your choice of replacement windows. To make the process easier, here are some tips from Renewal by Andersen® of Westchester:
Think Outside the Box
If you live in a Cape Cod home, you can install cottage-style double-hung windows on the front of your house to stay true to your architectural design. For the sides that won’t be seen from the street, you can use casements when they’re more convenient for those rooms. This way, you can achieve your design ideal without sacrificing functionality. You can also disguise casements as double-hung units with clever use of grilles.
Be Particular With Color
Choosing the right exterior color is important for historical accuracy. Cape Cod typically feature white window frames and trim colors. However, recent designs favor more colorful hues. At Renewal by Andersen, we recommend forest green. This shade will make your windows pop without violating the Cape’s traditional style.
Treat Them Right
When it comes to covers for your windows, draperies are the traditional option. However, wooden shades are another great option. We recommend mixing up styles for a unique, yet classy effect.
