BEST WAYS TO MIX SMALL WINDOWS WITH YOUR MODERN HOME

Modern architecture is synonymous with oversized glass units, which is a departure from the punched apertures common in traditional home styles. However, contemporary architectural designs and small windows are not necessarily mutually exclusive. With the right intention and execution, breaking the rules could lead to great results.

Best Ways To Mix Small Windows With Your Modern Home

Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis shares some of the best ways to make your small windows installation work wonders for your modern home:

Celebrate Asymmetry

Since contemporary home designs don’t put a premium on symmetry, feel free to come up with unconventional window compositions. You’re not required to align your units with one another or choose windows of the same size.

Depending on your aesthetic goals, we recommend creating controlled chaos. One way to achieve this is by grouping fixed glass units in one location and placing lonely casement windows in another. If your composition is well thought out, your asymmetrical window arrangement would look harmonious from outside.

Maximize Their Functionality

Outfitting your modern home with small windows shouldn’t be done for purely aesthetic reasons. Form should still follow function. As much as you want to lend more interest to your home exterior, make sure your tiny units serve more than one purpose. Well-designed, small windows in contemporary settings contribute to energy efficiency, daylighting, ventilation, and view-framing in the rooms they serve.

Install Them on the Side of Your Home

Not all modern front façades are accommodating to petite glass units. To avoid affecting curb appeal, don’t face small energy efficient windows to the street. The sides let you get away with the informality of eccentric window compositions without ruining your home’s character.

As the window replacement authority in St. Charles, Missouri, we’re the most qualified company to custom-design glass units for your modern home in MO. To talk about your project in detail, call Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis now at (314) 310-3636 to schedule your FREE, in-home estimate.

"Renewal by Andersen of St Louis is an outstanding company. Our third phase of replacing windows was accomplished flawlessly, just like the first two phases. All interactions, from ordering to installation, were very professional. The installers were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to solve an issue when a minor structural problem was encountered."
