How to Match Window Styles in a Room

When it comes to decorating your home, mixing and matching can make things better and more interesting. While various patterns, colors, and other interior and exterior aspects can be combined to create an aesthetically pleasing and magnificent style, can the same be applied to windows and rooms?

The Mix and Match of Window Styles to the Room

The pattern of your home’s windows does not have to match the front. Other outside window styles can be varied. Window requirements vary by room. Here are some tips for thinking about windows in each area.

  • Living Room Windows

Many living rooms have glass doors to patios or decks. Windows and doors grouped together can provide a sense of openness and let in light, making a home appear larger than it is. Align the tops of the openings and use matching trim.

  • Dining Room Windows

Windows in the dining room should be chosen with care. Do you really need huge picture windows to look out of when it’s dark outside? With fewer or no windows, homeowners are turning to art, fireplaces and even furniture to add visual interest at night.

  • Kitchen Windows

Casement windows are the greatest choice when reaching over a sink or counter. Wall space is scarce in kitchens. Create a walk-in pantry for storage and wider windows above the counters, where you spend the most time.

  • Bedroom Windows

While bedroom windows let in light and provide views, they also help keep cool on hot evenings. Building standards mandate that windows be a specified size and height to allow you to escape and firemen to enter a second-floor bedroom without a back stairway.

  • Bathroom Windows

Confidentiality is vital. Ambient lighting can be achieved through transom windows, skylights, or even glass blocks. Having moveable windows rather than relying exclusively on a fan is beneficial in most bathrooms.
