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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
