11 Home Styles With Lots of Windows

Craving more natural light in your home? For each home style, there is a window type that works best to capture more natural light and add style to your home. We’ve outlined ones that fit best. 

Farmhouse Style Home Windows  

Marvin Replacement Double Hung or Single Hung windows fit perfectly with farmhouse style homes, which dot the Midwest and Texas. They can make a splashier look when set in an array of three with single windows on the second level. Double hung and single hung windows look especially good with divided lites, also known as grilles, for additional appeal. 

Cape Cod Style Home Windows 

Double hung windows fit Cape Cod style homes best because they often have dormers that need tall, rectangular windows, and homeowners can modify them by choosing cottage or oriel styles for different sash sizes. Divided lites look good with Cape Cod houses, which typically have two windows on each side of the front door and dormer windows centered above the first-floor windows.  

Victorian Style Home Windows 

Victorian homes have a lot of character and architectural features, like turrets, which make them fit for an array of window types. Double hung or single hung windows work well because they are tall and narrow, meanwhile round top and arch windows slide in above first-floor windows for added curvature. Bay windows are often found with Victorian homes because of the home’s curved shapes.  

Prairie Style Home Windows 

Prairie style homes typically feature a lot of big windows with an emphasis on geometric lines. Picture windows dominate living rooms and often get paired with casement windows. Awning windows also appear with Prairie style homes as a row. Divided lites help contribute to maintaining the geometric lines.
