Mid-century modern homes often feature windows and doors with floor-to-ceiling glass, especially as partitions between the indoor and outdoor area. These type of homes are often built with rectangular areas, flat roofs and raised floors. The property often features the owner’s desire for natural lighting.
If you are one of those who have this type of property, you may want to know some tips about how to improve or maintain its modern style, including installing the right window style. Renewal by Andersen® of Southeastern Mass and Rhode Island discusses your window style options for this architecture.
Best Window Styles
Are you familiar with quintessential windows? This type of window is best for mid-century modern properties. These are enormous windows manufactured with narrow frames and enormous glass.
A casement or a picture window can achieve a classic, retro look. You can also add awning windows to keep the modern design but also increase ventilation.
Window Finished and Frame Colors
If you are after natural wood frames, especially mahogany, walnut, cherry or maple textures, you’re in luck as our Fibrex® window frames look exactly like those but without their weaknesses. They’re even twice as strong as vinyl and require less maintenance. You can complete the mid-century modern look with a white paint finish, but Fibrex windows can also be dark-colored without having an impact on energy efficiency and thermal transfer.
