How to Customize Your Replacement Windows

Is it time to replace your home’s windows? Are they inefficient and difficult to operate? In addition to solving these problems, replacing your windows is a great opportunity to make your home look more beautiful — from the inside and outside. The windows you choose for your home should be customized for your home’s architectural style as well as your personal preferences.

There are many things you can do to personalize your home’s windows, from selecting the right window style to choosing a grille pattern that appeals to you, and of course picking the window frame color that complements your home and will make it one you’ll love for years to come.

Choose the Right Window Style

Window styles vary from double-hung to casements, sliding windows, bay, bow, awning, and many more. There are many types of window styles that you can choose from, especially when you’re selecting windows from Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro.

Most important to remember when selecting a window style for your home is that you don’t need to choose a style that exactly replicates the current style of window in your home right now – you can choose another style of your preference. Talk to your window replacement sales representative to find out which window styles will work best in your home for your needs and style preferences.

Don’t Overlook Window Grille Patterns

Window grilles are the decorative dividers that appear in some windows. Grilles can be arranged in different patterns to give your window a different, more traditional style. Window grilles come in many patterns, so you can choose the pattern that makes the most sense for your home.

Some examples of different grille patterns include:

  • Prairie style – grilles line the sides of the windows.
  • Colonial style – grilles form a grid pattern inside the windows.
  • Diamond style – grilles form a diamond pattern inside the windows.

In addition to the window grille pattern, there are also three different types of window grille that define how the window grille is attached or integrated into the window:

  • Full Divided Lite Grilles
  • Between the Glass Grilles
  • Interior Wood Grilles

Window Frame Color Choices

The color of your windows’ frames is another opportunity to customize your windows for your home. Renewal by Andersen window frames are made from a composite Fibrex material, which never needs to be painted or refinished. That means you could potentially leave your windows the same color for the entirety of their service life, provided that you choose the right color.

Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro windows come in a range of interior and exterior colors. You can choose from six different colors and three different wood finishes, including pine, oak and maple. You also have a selection of nine different exterior colors from which to choose to best complement your and your home’s style.

If you’re not sure which colors to choose for your home, ask yourself questions such as, do I want the color to contrast with my home’s siding and the interior of my home? Would I like the color to coordinate with the colors in the environment around the windows?

If you’re not sure which colors are right for you, visit the Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro showroom. Seeing the windows in person always helps.
