Get Creative With Your Window Replacement in Moline

Posted on January 30, 2018

Window Replacement in Moline, IL

Many older homes in Moline are probably starting to need window replacement. There are many things that can cause your windows to need to be replaced. In some cases, it may be that your windows are just old and have worn out. If you live in an older home, it is likely that there have been other upgrades to your home and the windows are the next obvious choice.

Replacement Windows for Lower Energy Bills

Many homes have windows that are not energy efficient and the homeowners will want to replace them due to increased energy bills. As your home settles and ages, it can cause cracks around your windows making them less energy efficient and just plain drafty. New windows are energy efficient due to expert installation and energy efficient glass.

Replacement Windows for Beauty

The desire for replacement windows might be purely aesthetic; to make your home beautiful and to reflect your personal style and taste. All of these are good reasons for window replacement in Moline and there are lots of window options to choose from. You can get creative or go with a simple, classic style.

Whether you choose a classic window style or a custom design there is a way to be creative and add a unique design touch to your windows regardless of the style that you choose.  That is with the window placement.

Get Creative With Height

Instead of placing your windows at the usual height, try placing them lower. This creates an inviting feeling in your room because you will be able to see out of the windows more clearly. It also changes the way that light enters the room, making the room seem larger.

Lowering the placement of your windows has a dramatic effect on the look and feel of the exterior of your home, also. Lower windows are more visible from the outside and add a more attractive element to the entire curb appeal of your home.

Get Creative With Multiple Window Styles

If you can you get creative with the placement of one window, you can get really creative with the placement of multiple windows. To create a unique and appealing design element to your home, try placing windows of different styles together on one wall.

Place smaller square windows above tall vertical windows for added height and architectural impact. Placing round top windows above your windows can have a similar effect. Mix windows that have grids with windows that don’t.

Get Creative With The Unexpected

Placing windows in areas where they are unexpected can add an artistic element of surprise. Placing a window in a dark corner or at the end of a hallway will not only lighten up the space and make it feel larger but will make these otherwise uninviting spaces suddenly warm and cozy.
