Replacement Windows That Go Well With Popular Home Styles

It can be challenging to choose replacement windows that fit the architectural style of your home. Will an awning windows installation fit your old-fashioned American Farmhouse, or should you go for a more conservative double-hung window? Do bay windows fit in a Victorian home or are casement windows a better choice?

windows and home styles

Most modern homes today are actually a combination of classic design elements and a few contemporary twists. Understanding the elements that give your home its distinctive style can help you find windows that fit the same mold. Here are a few replacement window recommendations from our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City for some of the most popular American homes.

Cape Cod

Classic styles like a double-hung or a casement window replacement are staples of the classic Cape Cod. While this type of house may have its roots in early century England, Cape Cod has become one of the quintessential American homes. Double-hung and variations of the double-hung window are standard fare for this style, while casements are typically chosen for windows in kitchens and bathrooms.


Another style of home that benefits from double-hung windows is the Georgian. Popular in the 1700s as a sign of the growing affluence of early Americans, the timeless Georgian pairs well with double-hungs with multiple muntins that resemble a French patio door.

Mission Revival

French casement and double-hungs are also the home replacement windows of choice for this Spanish style home. Grilles typically divide the upper sash of double-hung windows into smaller squares, with frames in warm color finishes such as Cinnamon or Coffee stained Oak and Pine.

Modern Contemporary

The windows in modern and contemporary homes are arranged to maximize excellent outdoor views. Picture and casement windows are preferred in this style of homes because they offer uninterrupted glass areas.
