Windows feel like a permanent fixture in the home, but there are many occasions in which a homeowner might need to replace them. When you are getting Rockwall, TX replacement windows, you have the opportunity to change the way your home looks. You can get energy efficiency, comfort, security, and a number of other things as well, but appearance is one of the highlights. If you want to give your home a fresh look, here are some things you can do with replacement windows.
Change The Color
If you like the way your windows function now, you might not want a different style. Simply changing the color of the windows can give your home a whole new look. If you have a light-colored home, the big trend right now is to go with black windows or another dark color that goes with your home’s color. That change can give the house a dramatic contrast that adds curb appeal.
Change The Style
If you’ve always had casement windows, you might want to change things up and get double hung instead. They’re easier to clean since they tilt into the house and you can open the top and bottom at once for ventilation. On the other hand, if you have double hung, you might want to give casement windows a try since they are the most energy efficient and allow you to open them fully from top to bottom at once.
Add Windows Above
If you’re craving more natural light and a new style, consider adding more windows to your home. You could utilize additional windows above doors, current windows, cabinets, or in other areas. Look up when you are thinking of new windows. Windows that are higher on the wall won’t require window coverings for privacy, so you won’t have additional costs after they are installed.
Get Unique Shapes
Most of your windows are going to be rectangles, but if you want something unique that will change the look of your house, consider a unique shape at the bottom of the stairs, in the hallway, above the kitchen sink or in other locations that would stand out. The shape will show off a sense of style and bring in the natural light you want.
Even if you get the exact same thing you have now (only newer), you’ll still have a different look on your house. Replacement windows today have thinner frames than before, which means more space for glass. You’ll get more natural light than you had before and better ventilation along with the energy efficiency they apply to any home.
