If you want to give your home a fresh new look, start with new windows! Changing your home’s windows increases not only the curb appeal but also the property value. Whether you want to leave a lasting impression on guests or sell your house—the right set of windows will highlight your home’s features and greatly enhance its aesthetic appeal. Read on to learn how to improve your home’s appearance with new windows.
Compliment the Architectural Style
A person walking on the sidewalk or the street doesn’t just see a building when they look at your home—they see each aspect of its features, such as the outline of the front door, paint color, windows, handrails, posts, and angles of the roof. That’s why it’s important to choose a window design that compliments your home’s architectural style. For example, floor-to-ceiling windows bring out the beauty of contemporary style homes, while arched windows look great on historic properties. When you understand your home’s architecture, you can better select a design that’ll best enhance your home’s natural character.
Choose Contrasting Colors
Instead of choosing the siding and frames in neutral colors, experiment with contrasting colors. For instance, beige window frames can make rich brown sidings pop and add a classy look to your home. You can also add a fun twist to your windows with a little bit of stained glass!
Upgrade Exterior Window Trim
Every window has an external trim to protect it from external elements. Use yours to bring out your home’s character or make a style statement. From elaborate and ornamental to simple and subtle, there are various styles to choose from and add a unique touch to your home.
When building a new house, consider the directions you want the windows to face. New construction windows facing the west and east will receive a lot of sunlight, contributing to an increase in heating and cooling costs. Consider these factors before installing your windows.
Let the Light in
Windows don’t just allow natural light into your home; they also make your house look gorgeous too. Open windows make your home look spacious and welcoming. Bay or bow windows are a popular choice for living rooms because they let more light in than standard styles.
Accessorize Your Windows
Windows are the eyes of the house—accent yours with attractive design elements to give your property some personality. Window boxes with colorful flowers at the base of front-facing windows will increase your curb appeal and add some welcoming charm. Window shutters can also add an elegant touch to your home, or choose a rustic style to achieve the perfect cabin vibe.
Installing low wattage, warm-hued bulbs on the exterior of your new windows will make your home shine in the evening hours and add an extra element of warmth when the temperature drops.
