Homeowners may be surprised to learn that home style actually plays a part in helping you determine the suitable grid pattern for your windows. Luckily for you, however, there are plenty of patterns to choose from, whether your windows are ready-made or custom. It all just boils down to making sure they match.
Victorian and Neo-Victorian
For Victorian-style homes, a diamond-patterned grid at the top of the window sash isn’t an uncommon sight as they can emphasize the elaborate decoration of both the home’s interior and exterior. Neo-victorian homes, on the other hand, can take on the grid patterns often seen on the windows of Colonial-style homes.
The cottage-style home is often built with simplicity in mind, and, as such, a simple grid pattern for your replacement windows should suit your home. To be exact, the grid patterns that suit this home style can be achieved by adding a muntin at the top and bottom of their window sashes.
Like the Victorian home style, diamond-patterned grids are the most suitable grid pattern for windows of Tudor-style homes. This is because adding such a pattern to your window helps the home emphasize its Old World, European look. Apart from that, homeowners can also choose between covering the entire window panel or just a portion of it, such as the top half of double-hung windows.
Modern or Contemporary
When it comes to modern or contemporary homes, on the other hand, it’s not uncommon to see plain glass panels on windows, highlighting a property’s sleek and clean look. However, homeowners who want to add interest to their window can add a simple grid pattern by installing a plain, horizontal valance along the top of the window and a horizontal line running along the bottom of the glass.
