Choosing The Right Window Style

Windows are more than just portals to the outside world; they're a defining feature of your home's character. The right window style can elevate your curb appeal, enhance your interior's aesthetics, and even contribute to your home's energy efficiency.

Matching Your Windows to YourHome's Architectural Style

Southern New Hampshire boasts a rich architectural heritage, with homes ranging from colonial farmhouses to mid-century moderns. Here's a breakdown of popular architectural styles and the window styles that complement them best:

  • Colonial (Cape Cod, Georgian, Federal): Double-hung windows are a timeless choice for these classic styles. Their vertically stacked sashes with divided lites (panes) echo the symmetrical proportions of colonial homes.
  • Victorian (Italianate, Queen Anne): Bay and bow windows add a touch of grandeur to Victorian homes. Bay windows project outward, creating a spacious nook, while bow windows have a gentle curve. Both styles can be adorned with decorative grilles for an extra touch of Victorian charm.
  • Craftsman (Bungalow): Casement windows with heir clean lines and outward crank handles perfectly complement the     horizontal emphasis and natural materials of Craftsman bungalows.
  • Ranch: Picture windows with large expanses of glass create a light-filled, open feel perfect for ranch-style homes. Horizontal sliders are another popular choice, offering unobstructed views and a sleek aesthetic.
  • Mid-Century Modern: Floor-to-ceiling windows with minimal framing maximize natural light and connection to the     outdoors, a hallmark of mid-century modern architecture. Awning windows with horizontal sashes can also add a touch of modern flair.

Beyond Style: Functionality Matters Too

While aesthetics are important, consider how you'll use your windows. Here are some factors to keep in mind:

  • Ventilation: Casement windows and awning windows offer excellent ventilation as they open wide to allow for fresh air circulation.
  • View: Picture windows and large sliders provide unobstructed views, perfect for scenic vistas.
  • Window Size and Placement: Think about how much natural light you desire in each room. If privacy is a concern, consider frosted or tinted glass options.

 

Additional Considerations forNew Hampshire Homes

Our region experiences all four seasons, so energy efficiency is a key consideration. Double-paned windows with an insulated Low-E coating will help regulate your home's temperature and minimize energy bills. Additionally, consider the weather resistance of your chosen window material. Vinyl windows are a popular choice in New Hampshire due to their affordability, durability, and low-maintenance requirements.
