Combining different window styles can be a liberating proposition. Let us face it, many window styles were invented centuries ago and look somewhat dated, but even the contemporary ones have their issues. But combining several styles to create a hybrid look could be just what your home needs.
Fundamentals Should Your Number One Priority
Rule number one is not to forget the necessities. Do not mix windows for the sake of mixing them to the detriment of your property’s structural integrity. Always follow the building codes.
Two Positives Could Make One Weakness
The positives of one unit could offset those of another. Some windows rarely work well with each other.
Approach your window project with the right mindset. Instead of trying to have all of the advantages of different window styles, come up with combinations that neutralize the disadvantages inherent to the units. The picture window’s fixed sash and the double-hung window’s difficulty of use are some of the drawbacks many homeowners would like to eliminate.
The Possibilities Are Not Endless
In truth, the sky is not the limit. Some window design realities can’t be denied so embrace them, and plan your project around them. Only then can you harmoniously combine distinct glass units.
