Discover Four Places to Find Replacement Window Design Inspiration
When the time comes to invest in replacement windows for your Long Island home, you may not know immediately which styles you want, whether to choose the same color for the exterior and interior components, or what type of hardware is best for your lifestyle. Most people have a vision of what they expect their home to look like, but aren’t sure how to get there. If you need some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing, these four Renewal by Andersen of Long Island tips may help you decide which decorative features and styles are a good fit for you
Online Decorating Blogs
A quick Google search returned more than 363 million pages about home design – covering everything from fabric and color selection to flooring materials and ceiling tile patterns. And, naturally there were thousands of pages dedicated to window styles and features, too. Think out of the box when looking for blogs by browsing interior design articles not directly related to windows. You’ll find windows in photos showcasing furniture, dishes, bedding, landscaping projects and almost every item found in or around a home. Start with House Beautiful, Houzz and Today’s Home, then expand your search based on what you find on those websites and outbound links.
Replacement Window Customer Education Technology
Every reputable brand has a unique set of resources for their customers. For example, our Renewal by Andersen 3D app allows consumers to upload photos of their home and get a computer generated image that shows how different window styles will look in a given house. On our website, you’ll also find photos and/or videos of recent projects in your area. The visualizer gives you a better idea of the subtle and unmistakable differences in two replacement window styles. Sliders and casements may look very similar when closed, but the differences in appearance and function are stark when open, and in use.
Friends, Family and Neighbors
If you know anyone who personally updated their home with high-performance replacement windows, make a visit to their home before you visit a showroom or schedule a home consultation. Anyone who is pleased with the final project will likely be thrilled to show off their new windows. And, if they had a less-than-perfect experience, or wish they had made some different choices, odds are they will share that information with you, without you even having to ask.
A driving or walking tour is another great way to get some inspiration. Pick a neighborhood or community with homes similar to your own and make notes about what you like and don’t like about the windows you see. Real estate agents often advertise Open House events. Check online and print listings, then spend an afternoon checking out listed homes. This exercise may get you a close up look at interior and exterior elements. By the way, This year’s Open House New York is October 12-14, 2018. Remember to check out commercial buildings, too. While many businesses have plain, unadorned windows, you may find just the inspiration you have been looking for hidden among the unremarkable masses.
