An integral part of planning your window replacement is determining whether the replacement units will be a perfect fit for your home once they’re installed. If you are going to replace two past-their-prime windows, you might be thinking of changing the remaining windows that are still in good condition.
The idea of matching all windows is something many homeowners that tackle window replacement think as necessary. But should you do so?
Answer: There’s No Need to Match Windows
Surprisingly, the answer is no – there’s no need to match your replacement units with the rest of your windows. If you are going to replace those that face your yard, patio or deck, the units shouldn’t necessarily follow the pattern or style of the windows facing the front or sides of your home.
You can pull off a successful window replacement as long as all windows can handle variations in terms of quantity and style. It only becomes a mistake if the units are treated so differently that they look out of place. Imagine a plate-glass window set adjacent to a double-hung window. This placement breaks the harmony of the home’s exterior.
Designing Your Home With Windows
Any home improvement company would suggest compatibility on the windows’ basic features, which means the grilles, muntins and trim must be similar in terms of style. This is worth considering, especially if you are looking to add a modern touch to your home’s design.
It is also recommended to take the room where the new windows will be installed into account. For instance, a new window inside a dining room shouldn’t be as big as the window in another area of your home, say a living room.
