Upgrading the Look of Your Indianapolis Home With Custom Windows

Have you grown tired of your indoor decor? Perhaps the exterior of your Indianapolis home is beginning to look a bit dated or mundane. An easy way to update the interior and exterior of your home at the same time is to have replacement windows installed. Custom windows come in so many different styles and with so many different features that they can completely transform your home’s appearance.

Here are some custom window design ideas to get you started.

Choose a unique hardware finish

Window hardware often gets overlooked because it is so small, but choosing a unique finish for your hardware can transform the look of your room. For an antique look, opt for oil-rubbed bronze — or for a more modern look, go with satin nickel. In the kitchen and bath, replace your cabinet hardware to match that on your windows. This creates a uniform, balanced look.

Use color to your advantage

Is there a color in your wallpaper that does not stand out as much as you’d like? Perhaps your home exterior looks lackluster because everything is shades of gray or tan. You can solve these color scheme issues by picking the right color for your custom windows.

Add a splash of color to the exterior of your Indianapolis home with a bold green or rusty red window frame. Or, pull together a room’s look by choosing custom window frames in a color seen in your wallpaper.

Add a touch of elegance with grilles

A grille is like a grid that fits over your window and divides the glass into smaller squares or rectangles. This window treatment helps call more attention to your windows, both from the inside and from the outside of your Indianapolis home.

There are many styles of grilles, but some of the most popular options are:

  • Colonial grilles, which divide the window into six equally sized rectangles in two rows of three.
  • Prairie grilles, which create long rectangles on the top, bottom, and sides of the window and small squares in each corner.
  • Farmhouse grilles, which divide a window into three side-by-side rectangles.

Add a bay or bow window

A bay or bow window can create a new focal point on your home’s exterior while also allowing more light to shine into your room. Bringing in more natural light will make the entire room feel more open, and it will also make your existing color scheme feel more vibrant, even if you don’t repaint the room.

Bow windows usually consist of three window panes, and they’re a good choice for over a counter or above a dining room buffet. Bay windows usually stretch from floor-to-ceiling and occupy most of a wall, making them the perfect choice for a living room. You can choose most any style of window for your bay or bow window arrangement, from double-hung to casement windows. Plus, you can integrate the other customization options discussed in this article, like unique hardware finishes and colors, to give your bay or bow window a more distinguished appearance.

These are just a few of the many options available when you purchase custom replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen. If you’re ready to transform the look of your Indianapolis home, contact us to set up your free, in-home consultation today.
