Should You Choose Modern or Traditional Windows for Your Washington Township Home?
Whether you’re building a new home or remodeling an existing home in Washington Township, you’ll want a home that reflects your personal sense of style. Your choice of windows can make a significant impact on how your home looks (and feels). So what should you do if you’re having a hard time deciding between traditional and modern styles—and you actually like both? The photo you see here is an example of a Marvin Contemporary Casement window for the kitchen. The clean, simple lines (with emphasis on the outside views) are unmistakable. And the contrasting color of the frame draws the eye to the window and outside. Windows such as these allow architects, designers, and builders to create the type of airy, light-filled spaces modern open-concept living demands.
How important are your home’s windows? According to Architizer.com, “Windows are one of the most important components of a building, but it can be a challenge to determine which of the many different types of frame and glass to use in any given situation. Issues such as climate, safety, energy efficiency and aesthetics are all controlled by various international and local building codes, which should be reviewed before choosing your windows. Luckily, manufacturers can help you narrow down which type of frame and glass you’ll want if you explain how and where it will be used.”
The Architizer article went on to say, “One brand that’s zeroing in on the future of window performance, not to mention beauty, is Marvin Windows and Doors. A Minnesota–based supplier, the company offers made-to-order custom designs with exclusive features and high levels of energy efficiency. They’re constantly challenging the industry standard for windows of all sizes and shapes.”
Of course, contemporary is the only style to consider. What if your Washington Township home is more of a Craftsman style home? Something along the lines of what you see here may suit your home better. But you can also choose from Coastal, Transitional, Victorian, Colonial, or Cottage styles.
