Are you ready to build the perfect window and door combination? Then C & T Siding can help you every step of the way. Below are some expert tips on how to build a cohesive window and door design that you and your family will love for years to come.
It’s all About Style
When considering what type of door/window combination you want for your home, the real question is what type of style you’re trying to establish. Do you like more traditional designs that have a timeless feel, or are you going for a trendy, bold, modern look? The right windows and doors can help you accomplish your goals and solidify a cohesive look throughout the inside and outside of the house.
For instance, below are three examples of common household styles and the most appropriate types of doors and windows for each:
● Craftsman. Craftsman homes are generally built using a balanced integration of wood and stone with doors and windows strategically positioned around the building. Windows that normally fit this style would include single-hung, double-hung, casement, or awning windows. As for the door? We recommend a solid Bayer Built wood door with a dark brown clean finish.
● The modern look. Modern homes contain larger open spaces with larger windows that let in the sun’s natural rays. Newer home layouts have more exposure to the outside via picturesque windows and doors. Therefore, your window choices would preferably include gliding windows, panoramic windows, bow windows, or windows that have unique shapes. Doors that work well in modern homes would include Select Steel entry systems or Bayer Built fiberglass doors.
● Victorian. If you’re looking for lush and ornate designs and patterns, then classic Victorian style is for you. Victorian windows are often sectioned with various shapes. You can put together a window medley instead of having just one window. Victorian windows are all about detailed designs with inlays. To accomplish this, you’ll want to go with bow or bay windows. Arch and double-hung windows will also work in ensembles. Almost any type of door material will work with Victorian homes as long as it adds to the regal appeal that Victorian homes are known for. You may want to begin with Ultra Block Doors.
