The Best Home Window Styles for Janesville, Wisconsin Homes

When it’s time for a window replacement, first think about which window styles fit the architecture of your home. A tour of Janesville, Wisconsin revealed 5 popular types of homes in the area: bungalow, Cape Cod, colonial, ranch, and Victorian.

Here’s how to pick the window style that jives with your Janesville, Wisconsin home:

The first of our Janesville, Wisconsin home window styles is the Bungalow, an American favorite since the early 20th century.

If your home is a Bungalow:

  • Your windows should be double-hung or speciality. 
  • Classic bungalows usually make good use of simple double-hung windows and accent their wide gabled roofs with small, square, specialty windows.

If your home is a Cape Cod:

  • Your windows should be double-hung or picture. 
  • Embrace the Cape Cod look by installing double-hung windows on the second story dormers and double-hung windows with shutters on the first story.

If your home is a Colonial:

  • Your windows should be double-hung with colonial grilles. 
  • The straight, orderly lines of colonials should be accented with double-hung windows with colonial grilles. Add an arched specialty window to the gable over your entryway for a touch of drama.

If your home is a Ranch:

  • Your windows should be picture or gliding. 
  • Emphasize your ranch’s open, modern look with minimalistic gliding and picture windows without grilles or hardware.

If your home is a Victorian:

  • Your windows should be double-hung, picture, bay/bow, or specialty. 
  • Victorians are so intricate that you’ll likely need to use several styles. Double-hung windows can be topped with specialty windows for light and interest, while picture or bay windows happily adorn turrets and towers.
