Popularized by the legendary designer, Frank Lloyd Wright, mid-century architecture, once the staple of residential buildings in the ‘40s and ‘50s, is making a comeback these recent years. This style prioritizes large expansive windows that blur the borders between a home’s interior and exterior. Choosing the right windows with mid-century design sensibilities may seem easy, but it’s actually a little more challenging than it appears. For example, homeowners might want an awning windows installation for a little bit of shade but this window style doesn’t particularly mesh well with other mid-century elements.
Here are a few expert tips from our design consultants at Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City to help you decide on the right type of windows for your mid-century home.
When you think home replacement windows that are large and have plenty of glass area, picture windows fit the bill quite nicely. Mid-century homes do not particularly require a finish on its final design. One drawback for this style is that the windows are inoperable, which turns off many homeowners who want to have a nice cross-breeze during warm days.
