Window Options for Contemporary Homes
There’s a certain appeal to the simple and clean look of a modern contemporary home. The style is the perfect balance between modern design sensibilities and classic traditional architecture. This balance, however, can be disproportinate with a poor choice of replacement windows and that’s where our storm damage window repair professionals at KAT Construction come in.
If your home is looking for some new windows to update its contemporary aesthetic, then here are some style suggestions that you may want to check out.
The main selling point of bay windows (and bow windows, for that matter) is the extra floor space that it affords a room. A built-in seating into the bay window itself can serve as a cozy nook for a breakfast table in a small kitchen. Additional shelving constructed right under the bay window itself can give your living room a mini library for books or just more space for knick-knacks.
In contemporary homes, simpler is always better and one of the ways it achieves its signature clean and minimal appeal is by combining the functions of two or more fixtures, a feat that bay windows are famous for.
For homes that have recently had a roof restoration service, you may want to consider installing dormer windows. Large areas of roofing visible from the roadside can be too bland for any style of home, contemporary designs notwithstanding. You can break this pattern up with the use of dormers. Most types of windows work well with dormers but the most popular ones in use are double-hung and picture windows.
These days, customizing windows is simply a matter of talking to your contractor. Sizes, frames, colors and almost any other feature can now be customized to fit any area of your home. One such area that many contemporary homes share is the space between two roofs. Our professionals recommend clerestory windows to fill in this space and provide a room with natural lighting without sacrificing wall space and privacy.
