4 Window Styles to Match California Homes

Selecting the right window style to match your home’s architectural style can be a challenge, especially with many options available. Fortunately, you can count on Renewal by Andersen® of Orange County to suggest the best replacement windows in Orange County, CA. Here are four window styles and their matching architectural home styles:

Window Styles

1. Double Hung Windows

We offer double hung windows that feature mortise-and-tenon joinery for a classic look. They offer easy cleaning because they tilt inward. They make a perfect fit for Crafstman and Queen Anne homes.

Craftsman Bungalow is a common house style popularized in the early 20th century, as a result of the Arts and Crafts movement. It features steep French, Mansard, or multiple-pitch gable roofs and modest timber frame with stone exteriors. Double hung windows with stained wood interiors make an ideal choice for this home style.

The Queen Anne style, on the other hand, is synonymous with Victorian due to the prominence of the style’s residential architecture. This particular home style showcases towers, turrets, gable, and conical roofs. Meanwhile, tall double hung windows with upper sashes decorated with art glass or grille pattern perfectly match this architectural style.

2. Casement Windows

Our casement windows in Orange County, CA, catch breeze and allow fresh air in your home. Like our double hung windows, you can open them wide to allow for easy cleaning from the inside. They also come with a lever in an easy-to-reach location. They secure tightly at multiple points for a weathertight seal.

They’re popular choices for Tudor and Ranch homes. The former has English building features, including large elaborate chimneys and asymmetrical door and window compositions. It also has a combination of stucco, wood, and brick exteriors. Ranch homes, on the other hand, have long, narrow, one-story structures. A series of casement windows would look good in this type of architectural style.

3. Picture Windows

We offer picture windows that offer a panoramic view of the outdoors. They come with Fibrex® frame composite that has the beauty and twice the strength of wood, allowing for sleek frames for more glass surface area. This makes them ideal for most modern-style homes such as Industrial or Miesan Modern. Both feature linear elements that look best with floor-to-ceiling picture windows.

4. Bay Windows

While similar to bow windows, our bay units have a large fixed central window flanked by double hung windows. They project from your home in an angle, providing interior space that can serve as a dining or reading area. They make a perfect complement for Queen Anne home styles in addition to double hung windows in Orange County, CA.

Regardless of your home style, you can expect Renewal by Andersen of Orange County to provide you with matching windows. They also come in an extensive selection of design options that will further enhance your home’s architectural style.
