8 Window Style Ideas for Your Home Remodel

If you are remodeling your home and considering replacing your windows, consider what type of style you want. You could choose to keep the same style you currently have or choose a new design if you don’t like the one you currently have.

When selecting new windows for your home, it’s important to consider how you want your home to look, how far you want the window to open, and how much you want to spend. These are 8 gorgeous window style ideas to consider, but know that there are far more to choose from!

  • Single Hung Windows

One of the most common window styles, a single hung window opens by lifting the bottom panel up and down, while the top panel doesn’t move. Average costs are between $170 to $360.

  • Double Hung Windows

Similar to single hung windows, this window features a top and bottom panel that can both be opened. Average cost is about $450 to $600.

  • Casement Windows

Casement windows are large windows have no muntin’s that obstruct the view, and they open by either a crank mechanism or a handle. They open entirely out either from the right, left, or from the top. Average costs are between $270 to $750.

  • Arched Windows

Perfect for adding character and architecture to a home, arched windows have a curved top that many homeowners love. The average cost for this window design is around $325 to $500.

An addition rather than a full window, a transom window is a decorative styled window added to the top of doors or existing windows. This window is perfect for making your home look a little more upscale.

  • Sliding Windows

Sliding windows open by sliding one panel overtop of the other. They usually have no muntin’s, meaning the view is less obstructed than with single/double hung windows. The average cost to a homeowner is about $320 to $1,3000.

  • Picture Windows

Picture windows offer homeowners a gorgeous, unobstructed view outdoors. But know that this type of window style is fixed and cannot be opened. Average cost is about $245 to $850.

  • Garden Windows

This window style resembles a mini bay window! A garden window juts out so that you can place plants on the sill. The way this window is designed, it acts like a mini greenhouse, giving your plants plenty of sun. Depending on the style, some panels can open. Average cost is about $365 to $785 for homeowners.
