Tips for Matching Your Windows and Doors

by Neha S. Writer

While designing or redesigning the house, one has to be cautious with the selection of doors and windows, as they complement the architectural style of your property and can even be the focal feature of the design. There are many ready made doors and windows available to choose from, and you can also customize them for your specific need. Here in this article, we will tell you about points you should keep in mind while matching your windows and doors.


  • Functionality

Start by deciding the purpose of installing doors and windows. For example, look at whether they are residential interior doors or the entrance door for home, and then select functionally matching designer windows for homes.


  • Material

Once the purpose is clear, the second step is to choose the material for your doors and windows. Keep in mind that there are two parts to doors and windows, one is a frame, and the other is the body. Generally, the materials used for making them are wooden, metal, and fibreglass.


  • Design

This is the most confusing and critical factor in choosing the design. Below mentioned are some designs of doors and windows for various types of house architecture:


    • Doors


Flush: The flat surface on each side of this simple yet, dramatic door type is ideal for modern and minimalistic-style houses. There are various ready made doors available in flush style, and it is best suited as residential interior doors.


Panelled: A panelled door has raised panels. They are carved into the design and are available in various materials. They are best suited for the entrance door of home.


Glass inlay: Doors with a glass inlay can have classical and primary forms. You can also use it as craftsman doors or enormous glass panels, similar to many contemporary front doors.


French: For many homes, a French door is a timeless addition. Rectangular glass panes distinguish this design style from others. It is usually in pairs, and these are the best doors for home entrances. 


Patio: These are typically rear doors. They have a frame with a fixed panel of glass that swings open and closed and is used to access the backyard. These doors are ideal for getting a wide and panoramic view of your property.


    • Windows that one can match with the above choices:


Single and Double-hung: These windows are used in a classic setting and can be very attractive if matched with glass inserted doors and French doors. They are best suited for craftsman-style houses as designer windows for homes.


Casement: These are modern home windows, and they come with a case/frame. These windows are cheaper and come with two options: hanging and sliding doors. They are best suited when coupled with flush doors. In this category, readymade steel windows frames are the best, and there are many options for changing the material.


Sliding: These windows look good with the patio and panel doors. They have a good synergy with the design and complete the overall look.


  • Colour

Your choice of colour has a significant impact on the appearance of your house. The colour of your door frame should correspond to the window style you've chosen. If you wish for more modern house windows, go for a contemporary colour like black to give your whole design a more modern feel. For example, a Chartwell green front door with white or wood-effect windows would look fantastic on a traditional home.
