When constructing a custom home, you have the advantage of designing every aspect. From the paint to the door frames, from the floors to the ceilings, you have control over your home design. In particular, windows are a significant part of the design and can greatly impact your curb appeal. So, selecting the right windows for your custom home can dramatically influence its personality. So, what should you opt for? Keep reading to learn more.
You will need to consider what kind of windows you want regarding style. There are many options: single, slider, casement, fixed, bay, and more. In addition, single windows are possibly what you are most used to. These are the window types where you can push the bottom pane upwards while the top pane stays in place. Also, casement, hopper, and awning windows swing open from one part of the window, much like a door.
Moreover, slider windows for your custom home can be moved along a track, bay windows have massive sills that extend outward from the house, and fixed windows are decorative and inoperable rather than functional. So, you should use a mix of window types everywhere in your home because this may increase character. Overall, a window type can change the whole appearance of a room for the better.
Mixing window types throughout your home typically has to do with personal preference, so don’t hesitate to experiment with your ideas. For example, a bay window can accompany any other window type, even side-by-side. However, a single pane beside a casement window may look odd. Since fixed windows are primarily decorative, they must be placed with care. The best way to work out placement and window types is to partner with your reputable home builder. Custom home builders know precisely the right windows for your custom home to make it beautiful and symmetrical.
