Mid-century Modern homes are popular today. Many young home designers and homemakers find this style appealing, thanks to the open-concept design, clean and simple look and contemporary flare. Although this style originated in homes between the 1940s and 1970s, it is currently experiencing a resurgence in popularity.
Form follows function in this style of home. As such, each design or feature must be chosen for its usefulness. One of the major characteristics of a Mid-century Modern home is the use of large windows that serve to allow natural light in, making the home feel at one with the outdoors.
Here are some window replacement recommendations for Mid-century Modern style homes.
Mid-century Modern windows normally feature large glass panes with no divisions or “mullions.” Picture windows are thus a great choice, providing an expansive, unobstructed view of the outdoors. Homeowners must never replace glass pane windows with vinyl wrapped or stained glass windows. A double hung window shouldn’t be used in a Mid-century Modern house either.
Casement windows with large panes are perfect for Mid-century Modern style homes. These windows allow a lot of light in without obstructing the view from the outside and vice versa. They also allow provide adequate ventilation.
Picture and casement windows are sometimes combined in Mid-century Modern homes to form direct-set rectangular window combinations.
With their expansive glass areas, patio doors are perfect for Mid-century Modern homes. The sliding patio door style with its clean, sleek design works particularly well in these homes.
