3 Modern Window Ideas

Posted on December 20, 2015

installing new windows

Whether you're looking to update your current home or are in the midst of planning a new construction, there are a variety of modern, new window styles in Charlotte to consider. You have a lot of options in wood grain finishes, exterior colors and grid patterns. That doesn't include the actual function and size of the window. Consider these very modern options during your planning phase.

Overhead Awnings

A row of slim awnings above a very large picture window or glass sliding doors to your patio is a great way to let in a breeze without sacrificing too much of your energy integrity. Couple your awnings with some short sheers and everyone will wonder how you're getting that fresh air through a massive and stationary picture window. Sometimes doing the unexpected is the heart of new window styles in Charlotte.

Bay Window Seats

Although many people picture bay windows in a colonial ranch house, it's a simple matter to take this classic window type and make it modern. Try a prairie grid pattern instead of a colonial, and use flat grid bars with no texture or visible wood grain. Then coordinate your window frame to your modern decor and you'll have great modern style.

Slider Windows

You're windows don't have to rise from the bottom, if you choose a slider then it opens from the side with one pane gliding smoothly along horizontally. This switch-up gives your home a modern look and some extra safety. When your window is open, you don't have to worry about young children accidentally lowering the pane onto their fingers.

These ideas are just a start, contact a local company installing new window styles in Charlotte. An experienced contractor knows all the best ways to coordinate style, material and color to give you a great modern look. Your new windows are sure to look great both inside and out.
