Many homeowners are going with a minimalist home style. It’s a clean, streamlined approach at home decorating that helps remove clutter and give a home a fresh look. The minimalist style is just as it sounds, minimal. And if you are going for that approach, you need to make any Claremont, CA replacement windows and doors you install match the style. Here are some tips to help you get a minimalist look in your windows.
Tip 1: Consider Frame Size
When you are looking at new windows, the frames are important to how the windows will look in your home. Frames are smaller now than they ever have been before and you will want a thin frame to go with the minimalist style. Small frames give you more glass, which fits in well with a streamlined look.
Tip 2: Make Color A Priority
There are lots of color options for frames, but you won’t want anything that stands out against the other colors you use in the minimalist style. It’s best to stick with stark, neutral colors like white or black, depending on what else you have in the room already.
Tip 3: Energy Efficiency Counts
While you can’t visibly see energy efficiency in your Ontario, CA home with your eyes, you can certainly feel it in the comfort of your home. You can also see it on your energy bills. It is always a good idea to get energy efficient windows with any style home you have, and minimalistic features are one of them. You can add energy efficiency by putting on another pane of glass (go for triple instead of double!), getting low-e coatings, or adding argon or krypton gas between the panes. Everything you can do to increase energy efficiency will help your home in other ways.
Tip 4: Consider Style
The style of the windows you choose will make a huge difference in the minimalist look as well. Picture windows are great because they have no interruptions in the glass and give you a very streamlined look. However, they don’t operate and provide ventilation. If you need some of each, casement windows are great for another uninterrupted glass space. Choose windows based on the room you are looking at and what will work best in that space.
