When you flip through home improvement magazines, which style grabs your attention? Do you gravitate towards the elegant Mediterranean style architecture or lean more towards the shiplap and raw wood that is common in Farmhouse style homes? With the rise of HGTV and popular shows like Fixer Upper, more homeowners than ever before are starting to learn more about home styles and the unique options to choose from. Now, what a lot of people don’t realize is that a huge part of what sets certain home styles apart from others, is the type of windows you choose.
When it comes to picking out new windows, Window Expo offers a wide variety of colors, styles and configuration options – which means you can create the home of your dreams! With contemporary and mid-century modern homes being all the rage, we’ve seen a huge increase in homeowners looking for modern window options. Modern architecture can take many forms, and so the windows in these homes must be customizable to fit the overall design and aesthetic.
Here are a few of the modern window styles we offer:
- Sliding Windows
- Double-Hung Windows
- Single-Hung Windows
- Fixed Windows
- Casement Windows
- Custom Windows
These vinyl windows can all be designed to fit the color scheme of your home and match the modern look you’re hoping to achieve. Our designers often recommend the following color options for these different modern home styles:
- Mid-Century Modern – this style home is characterized by large, flat windows often framed in dark colors like black or bronze.
- Modern – Characterized by their clean, functional design, homes of this type commonly feature single-hung, double-hung and sliding windows in white, black or brown color options.
- Contemporary – often confused with modern homes, contemporary houses are designed using sustainable materials and aim to be energy efficient. These homes are often more unique in design, so we see a lot of custom, oversized black and hunter green windows.
Once you decide which type of modern, contemporary style you gravitate towards the most, one of our designers can work with you to bring your vision to life. However, there are more to our windows than just exceptional design and flawless craftsmanship. Our modern windows feature a number of other added benefits that make investing in new windows feel like a great decision.
