Feel Like An Interior Designer With Window Replacement

By February 25, 2019No Comments

You’ve watched enough home improvement shows to get a feel for how interior designers operate. Some of them have great taste while others, you’re not so sure about. But the same is true on every show—everything pulls together at the end, whether you like the final result or not. If you are thinking about window replacement in Cottonwood Heights, UT, you are the one in charge of pulling everything together. You get to make all of the small choices along the way and together, those options makeup the windows your home ends up getting. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at interior design, this is a good option to help you get started. Here are a few choices you’ll have to make.  

Frame Material 

One of the most important choices you will make, both to appearance and efficiency, is the material you place on the frame of your windows. Wood is warm, natural, and something that looks good on any home. But vinyl is often the more popular choice because it doesn’t take maintenance and yet has high energy efficiency qualities. The key to enjoying your vinyl is getting the right color since the color can’t be changed once the windows are on your house.  


The color of the frame you choose will show from the outside so you know it’ll have an impact on curb appeal. However, it’s also going to show from the inside so you want to get the right color for that as well. The inside frame might be covered with trim, which you generally make the same color as the other trim in your home. But the frame color will still show so you want it to look nice. It’s safe to go with white because white looks good with any other color. But if you want a contrast, black might intrigue you. Or perhaps a lighter or darker shade of the exterior of your house for that same contrast. Think about the color with care as it will make a big difference in your home’s appearance.  

Extras That Show 

While you will want to spend a lot of time looking into extras like low-E coatings and inert gas fillings, the extras that show make a difference in the appearance. Think about grids and hardware with care. Not every window needs grids, but you’ll have to have hardware no matter what window style you choose.
