There are different types of window designs, not all designs look suit every type with the type of home. You can have custom designed windows according to the way your home is built,, whether it’s modern or vintage. It’s good to sit down with your architect to discuss which design would look good when you’re either building or renovating your home.

For a vintage home or building, arch windows will look better. Arch windows are usually high, close to the roof. They are normally followed by normal rectangular windows below them. These windows remind you of a very vintage kind of building. A lot of the older church buildings have these types of windows, and the glass usually has a pattern on it. Most people design these to remain closed, yet you can also design it in a way where you can open the window.

For a more modern building, it is good to have full pane windows. These designs are usually roof to floor windows, and are similar to sliding doors. It is your choice to let it open as a sliding door or to open it like a normal window just to have some air come in. A full pane is great to have when there is a beautiful view to look out on, such as a big yard with a beautiful garden. Or even a yard with a nice clear pool and homely patio area.

A sliding window is ideal for a vintage or modern building. It fits in nicely with any of these designs, because you can size it according to the building. With a modern building its good to have it designed rather big. With the vintage style it’s good to have it designed to a standard size. These slide open easily, yet you need to keep them oiled regularly because they might just be tough to open as they get older.

It would be better for a safari lodge to have sliding windows; this gives it a more modern feel. If they are designed big enough, it would make it easier to enjoy the view of nature. Full pane will also work for a safari lodge, especially when you are in the heart of nature where you can see the animals walking around, and you can have a pool view.

The colours of your window frames are also important. You can paint over wooden frames as wooden frames are good to have but you will need to maintain it regularly. You can paint over a concrete frame as well; these are a better investment because you don’t need to replace them regularly. Your frame should be a colour that compliments the colour of your home’s exterior. The colour should also allow the glass and design to stand out more.

Don’t be boring when designing your dream home, or when renovating your current home to create your dream home. Get your custom designed windows, according to the colour and theme of your home, and according to the design of the building.
