What Are the Best Windows for Older Period Style Homes?

Are your windows not performing the way they used to? It’s probably time for replacement! Do you want new windows to better complement the traditional or period style architecture of your home? There are so many windows to choose from.

So what are the best types of windows for your period style (Colonial, Victorian, etc.) home?

 

Windows for Old, Traditional Houses

If your home has specific architecture, such as Tudor, Second Empire, cottage or something else, you want your windows to match and complement it. Windows for these older, period styles tend to be ornate—rather than minimalist and sleek.

What style should you use? We recommend:

  • Bay
  • Bow
  • Casement
  • Awning

These styles can be found on many older homes. But whichever style you choose, it should be more on the elaborate side. This means:

  • Muntins and decorative mullions (for example, Tudor houses usually have diamond shaped mullions)
  • Hardware (hand cranks on casement or awning windows, locks, etc.) that seamlessly matches the architecture of the home
  • Specialty glass (tinted, stained, etc.)
