One of the most important things to do when planning your window replacement project is choosing period-appropriate windows for your home’s style. Inappropriate looking windows can decrease your home’s curb appeal. Today, Kiernan Remodeling and Design will talk about four window design rules for ranch-style homes:
Focus on Horizontal Windows With Large Glass Areas – Your replacement windows should be longer than they are tall because ranch homes typically have only one-story. In addition, it would be best if your replacement windows have a large glass area and no grilles. Ranch homes look great if the windows can bring plenty of natural light into the interior.
Choose the Right Window Designs – For your window replacement project, it’s best if your new windows have baked-in solid colors. If possible, they should have no grilles, but if you can’t avoid grilles, use horizontal grilles. Avoid windows with novelty shapes, bay and bow windows, glass that’s not clear or tinted, and double- or single-hung windows.
Consider Using Picture Windows – Picture windows have clean lines, which make them a favorite for mid-century modern home designs like ranch homes. In addition, picture windows can be made large, allowing for plenty of natural light. They also look great without grilles and provide fantastic views.
If You Need Ventilation, Choose Casement Windows – Casement windows are an excellent choice for ranch-style homes because they look sleek and clean once they are closed. They are a better fit for these types of homes than double-hung windows. They also provide great ventilation because they can open wide to invite the breeze inside your home.
