Should all the windows in your home match? There are no strict rules when matching and placing windows. Above all, the functionality should be prioritized when you’re deciding on your window placements. Here’s how to suitably match and place windows in your home.
Other than the practical functionality of windows, they also serve as an aesthetic point of your home. Traditionally, windows are supposed to match. This is to achieve a uniformed and symmetrical look, especially in homes in a neighborhood that follows an existing style. Nowadays, it’s not necessary to match your windows. You have the freedom to choose any style or type of window for your home as long as it’s efficient and functional.
To simply put, you don’t need to match all your windows and follow the same style and material. It’s still ideal to choose windows that complement each other for a cohesive look. Although, matching is not difficult to do today as most window manufacturers carry consistent materials, designs and window styles.
Window placement is important as windows often reflect the home’s inviting characteristics. Windows influence not just your home’s appearance, but also its integrity. By placing the right windows in the right rooms, your home can improve its ambiance. When placing particular windows, you should consider your home’s orientation to the sun and the wind. This will help you decide where to put bigger windows to invite natural light and improve air circulation inside your home. You should also prioritize your home’s comfort over any style or design. For example, for the bedroom and the bathroom, install windows that do not compromise your privacy. The living room can use some bigger windows for the views while the kitchen can use some windows that are good for ventilation to avoid humidity buildup.
