Choosing replacement windows to accentuate your New Jersey or New York metropolitan home can be a bit confusing if you don’t know all the options and how style lends personality to the overall appearance. If you want to create a unique design or make a bold decorating statement, the right window style can help you achieve that vision. Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro offers a full portfolio of window styles and unique specialty shapes to help you reflect your personality and accentuate your home’s architectural features.
Creating a focal point is one way to draw attention to a roof line, a special addition or other stylistic features. You can also use window styles and accessories, like grilles or special shapes, to complement the overall aesthetic of a home, creating a cohesive, symmetrical visual appeal.
Here are a few examples of ways replacement windows can help you reflect the unique personality and character of your home.
Bay Windows: Balance with a Twist
A bay window expands your decorating options indoors and adds a visual element that both complements other architectural features and acts as a focal point. Generally, bay windows complement more angular features and bows present a more curvaceous appearance. However, it is possible to use bow windows to draw attention to minor features, such as a curved landing, round columns or an arched entrance.
What’s Under the Eaves?
Deciding which type of window to install under the eaves really depends on personal preference. You can really let your personality shine in this area. Choosing a fixed triangular window that mimics the pitch of the roof is one option. Installing a full circle or hexagon shape to replace a small square window adds a bit of visual diversity but usually won’t overpower the other architectural features in the home or look out of place. If you want to get really creative, consider using grilles to design a one-of-a-kind window appearance. Joining two half circles separated by a wide profile frame, or even using a large full circle window with two vertical grilles in the center spaced several inches apart, creates a distinctive focal point. Another example of unique grille placement is to “invert the grilles” to form an upside down triangle inside a triangular window.
Furnishing the Upper Floor Walk-out Deck
If you’re fortunate enough to have a small balcony or deck on the upper floor, installing a French-style patio or door or a double-casement window combination hinged on opposite sides delivers a splendid eye-catching focal point and allows you to let abundant air and sunlight into your home. This strategy creates a stunning accent for your home whether your doors or windows are open or closed.
Replacement Window Options
As you can see, there are literally unlimited creative options for New Jersey and New York homeowners to accentuate their architectural features. Custom built replacement windows can be installed as a single window unit or combined to create unique visual interest, enhance ventilation or expand your viewing area. Choose from:
- Fixed (inoperable windows)
- Plus, more than a dozen special shapes including: quarter-circles, peaked pentagon, hexagon and trapezoid
Remember to consider your interior spaces when looking for opportunities to accentuate your architectural features. Small quarter-circles flanking the brick fireplace or installed under the eaves in an attic loft create stunning interior features while providing ventilation.
