With its elegantly sloped roofline and charming architectural details, Craftsman bungalow homes are definitely here to stay. Dating back to a late 19th century British social movement, they are small and easy to maintain, making them ideal for people with busy lifestyles. Their unparalleled simplicity and functionality provide an added sense of charm.
When it’s time to invest in replacement windows, it’s essential to pick the right design to preserve your Craftsman bungalow home’s stunning character. Renewal by Andersen® of Connecticut provides some tips:
Pick Warm Colors
Craftsman bungalow homes look best with warm hues, such as earthy browns, yellows, greens and burgundies. The window frame and sash are usually of the same color, while the window trim is a contrasting color. Then, the siding color should be near to the color of the window frame and sash.
Mix and Match Windows
Window combinations in rows of two or three are often seen in Craftsman bungalow homes. Windows are also usually vertical in proportion, but single-accent windows don’t follow this rule. Double-hung replacement windows are a classic option, and you can match them with casement or picture units to achieve stunning patterns associated with this architectural style.
As your dependable window company, we suggest dressing up your windows with Farmhouse or Fractional grille designs to accentuate your home’s character. You can also match your series of windows with your patio doors for a cohesive look.
Consider Art Glass
Art glass can create a striking focal point on your home. You can use them for casement or picture windows used as accents. If you have double-hung window groupings, you can opt for art glass with floral or diamond-shaped designs on their upper sashes.
