Ranch style homes are a popular American house style that came into prominence after World War II. Its trademark features include an open floor plan with one story and an emphasis on the horizontal. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City talks about how our replacement windows can complement this architectural style.
Choose Wide and Grille-less Windows
Ranch style homes emphasize horizontal movement and clean and simple lines, so your windows should match this. Picture windows and casement windows in Kansas City are an excellent choice. These windows should be wide and have no grilles to emphasize the home’s horizontal character. In addition, the windows should be large to let in plenty of natural light. This will complement the home’s open floor plan and make the interior feel bright and airy.
Select Solid Frame Colors
Ranch style homes benefited from solid colors and man-made materials. Your windows should have vivid baked-in colors that can go well with your home’s color scheme. If you have a gray or beige exterior, go for our Forest Green colored frames. This color will make your frames stand out, turning your windows into an effective accent piece.
Keep Your Hardware Functional
The key with Ranch style homes is to keep it simple and functional. This extends to your windows’ hardware. As the premier window company in Kansas City, MO, we provide a wide range of hardware options. For example, our minimalist Contemporary Folding casement handles come in 11 different finishes.
