Homeowners, and homebuyers for that matter, tend to overlook their windows. They are an afterthought, more a functional feature than an aesthetic one. Yes, windows contribute to your home’s energy efficiency, can be opened to let the summer breeze in, and keep out the cold, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look good too.
The fact is, your windows can have a dramatic impact on your home’s appearance. If you’re considering replacement windows, here’s how to change up the look of your home:
Vinyl windows are the highest-selling residential window on the market, and for good reason. Ostaco windows are made to order, and can come in any shape, size, and colour — within reason of course. So whether you are a designer, architect, contractor, or DIY’er, you can have the window that fits your style. And unlike wood, you won’t have to repaint your new vinyl windows.
What are you looking for? Windows are everywhere, and we are sure you can recognize the differences, but never knew what to call them. If the traditional look appeals to you, double-hung or Single hung windows are the standard. Simply put, it looks like one large window divided into two sections called sashes. In the case of double-hung, both sashes can travel up and down, whereas with a single hung, only the bottom does. For the homeowner looking for a classic look.
If you were wanting to go modern, and needing to compliment that new stuccoed extension, casements or awning windows are the way to go. Clean hard lines maximize the amount of glass, which means more light, and large, unobstructed views. Like opening your windows to enjoy the fresh summer air? These windows open just like a door, hinging on either the left, the right, or top, bringing the great outdoors into your living space.
Without a doubt though, there is no better way to change the appearance of your home, and add some character to the interior than by adding a bow or bay window. Both styles of window add an interesting architectural detail to any facade. A bow window can be made to bend around the corner of your kitchenette, whereas a bay window will create a small seating area. Now imagine filling that nook with pillows, grabbing a book, your favorite hot beverage, and enjoying your new bay window. Sounds nice and comfy.
