There are many styles for residential homes, particularly for the doors and windows. Finding the right match is key to raising your home’s value. You wouldn’t want to install sliding windows in a Victorian home–they’d be out of place. Here are some recommended window and door styles to match.
Matching Your Home With Your Windows and Doors
Tudor homes are the kind that exist in storybooks. The quintessential “dream house,” it usually has timber linings and steep roof pitches. The most common factor is an intricate, wooden design for its structure.
Recommended windows for this style are classic double-hung, for full authenticity. Casement windows can be an energy-saving alternative. We also recommend doors with dark wood finishes, for added flavor.
Known to be an extravagant style, Craftsman homes are characterized by low-pitched roofs and exposed beams. Many of them use natural colors, like sky blue and sandstone. To match this design, choose neutral colors for your hinged doors and double-hung windows. We also recommend natural finishes, like wood and sandstone.
Spanish homes are known for luxurious, castle-like appearances. You’ll find many of them resembling traditional areas in Italy and the Mediterranean. Metallic grilles are commonplace for both windows and doors in this design. We also recommend modifying then with an arch, as they make the design look sleek and timeless.
Contemporary homes, also known as modern homes, are best described as streamlined. Emphasizing space and practicality, many of them are smaller and sleeker in appearance. The common color scheme are neutral colors, especially white and grey. Sliding windows and doors are the standard, as they offer a great view. The glass area also helps make the space look larger than it really is.
