If you're choosing new windows for an older home in NJ or PA, it can be hard to get a sense of what you should be looking for in terms of materials and design. Especially if you’re trying to mimic the look of an authentic Tudor, Colonial, or Georgian style.
Let’s talk about the ideal window for recreating an authentic style.
Customizing Marvin Infinity Windows for Your Authentic Style
When it comes to shapes and sizes, Marvin Infinity offers custom windows built to fit your space. So if you’re looking for tall and narrow windows for your Tudor home, Marvin can make that work. However, you also have a lot of customization in the type of window you want to install. It’s not uncommon to see double hung windows and casement windows on older homes in NJ and PA. You can also consider bay or bow windows. Not only do they add a touch of elegance to your home, they also open up the space and let tons of natural light in.
In terms of interior and exterior finishes, you have quite a few combinations to try out. Your exterior has several earthy tones, working perfectly for the look we’re going for. For the interior, you have white, sierra or the Everwood finish with 8 possible stains. This helps get the look of wood without the disadvantages like warping and rotting.
Another great way to add a touch of authenticity is to add simulated divided lites or grilles to your windows. You can add grilles to the inside of your window for easy cleaning or fiberglass bars adhered to the glass. This is an easy way to get an elegant, traditional look out of your windows.
