Keeping It Simple: Why Simple Windows Work

Being able to customize your windows is always a good thing—but sometimes, classic designs are all you really need. These styles stand out just as well as its more elaborate brothers. And we at Renewal by Andersen® can tell you just why the classics are a great option.

It Stands Out

In our many years of handling window and door replacement, we’ve seen a whole range of architectural designs and styles. When going with classic American architecture, we’ve found that simple designs stand out because they play off the contrasting color schemes that were popular in the period. There’s something to be said about a clear bay window installed in a ranch style home, for example, accentuating a particular design’s equally simple layout.

If you’re unsure about taking the plunge into the classics, here’s a little trick you can use to make a decision. Look your home over and ask yourself—will custom windows with its wooden grills and custom-colored glass overwhelm the design of the rest of the home? Or will it simply get lost in the design of my home? If you answer yes to both, then a classic design might be best for your needs.


Here at Renewal by Andersen, our windows are of the highest quality—regardless of their design. They actually pack several fantastic, value-added features that make them a worthwhile investment.

First, the frames are made from Fibrex®, which combines the best qualities of wood and vinyl. The panes use High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This is an energy-efficient material that helps prevent heat escape and lowers energy consumption and eventually your electricity bills.

Give us a call today and we’ll schedule your in-home consultation. Whether you’re going for traditional, or want to make a splash, we’ve got you covered!
