What Are the Best Window Types for Different Home Styles?

If your home needs new windows, homeowners would do well to get reliable window contractors to replace their windows for them. Choosing the right type of window for the home, however, depends on some factors, including home styles.

American Farmhouse

The American Farmhouse is a modern interpretation of the Victorian style. The windows in these homes are often double-hung windows that are taller than they are wide and come in earth tones, whites and pastels.

Craftsman Bungalow

Double-hung windows with stained interiors and casement windows are commonly used for these homes. Home window replacement experts say that these windows are usually vertically proportioned and have grilles on the upper part.

Industrial Modern

This style makes use of materials found in factories, such as concrete, corrugated metal and exposed wood. It uses casement and awning windows arranged to reflect interior function.

International Modern

This home style was built on the belief that function is more important than style. These homes often have multiple casement or picture windows arranged to make one large rectangular window.

Miesian Modern

This home style uses floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the areas where glass is uninterrupted and, in essence, looks invisible.

Prairie

Several casement windows arranged to form long horizontal bands characterize Prairie-style homes. Casement windows are often used here because they offer wide, uninterrupted glass panes.

Tudor

Various window types are used for Tudor-style homes. Casement and transom windows are common here. Bay windows are also typically found here, whether in the first or second story.
