Doors and Windows: Do They Have to Match?

If you are thinking of getting a new patio or entry door, one of the questions that you might have is whether to match it to your existing windows or not. According to experts, matching your doors to your windows is not at all necessary. However, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when selecting doors and windows for your home.

Doors and Windows: What’s the Rule?

Your choice of patio or entry door should not necessarily depend on the windows you have. That said, feel free to mix and match different styles of windows and doors. But make sure that they are suitable to the overall style or design of your home. For many design experts, this is the ultimate rule that you need to remember when choosing doors and windows for your home.

So, whether you opt to match your windows and doors or not, it’s entirely up to you. However, your door and window installer will likely suggest something that aesthetically fits your interior and exterior.

Tips on Choosing Windows and Doors

Here are a few tips to help ensure that your windows and doors match the style of your home:

For traditional style homes like Colonial, Georgian and Cape Cod, your best options for windows and doors include French patio doors, double-hung windows and bay and bow windows.

For Victorian style homes, you might be interested in using double-hung, transom or custom-shaped windows. Consider designing your entryways with decorative glass panels and stained glass, too.

For contemporary homes, you might want to focus on clean lines and asymmetrical designs for a modern and sleek look. Unembellished windows and sliding patio doors would easily fit this kind of design.

"After years of watching the wind move my drapes and hours of difficult cleaning, I decided to get new windows. I went with Renewal by Andersen because of the great reviews and quality. From Brent who did the consult, Gideon who did the measuring, to Jason, Josh, and I apologize I can't remember the third installers name, this is the most professional company I've ever worked with. I own a 1994 double wide mobile home, so everything in this place is hard to work with. I had a bay window, 6 double hung, 2 awning, and a front door replaced.. They said it would take 2 days and they were done on time! I did have second thoughts about doing this mainly because of the cost, but once it was done, I was very happy I did this."
