    What Kind of Window Treatments Work for Bay and Bow Windows?

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Bay and bow windows add depth and beauty to any room. However, you can increase the appeal of your bay or bow window with appropriate dressings that accent its shape. To determine which window treatment will work with your bay or bow windows, first consider the location of the window. Bay and bow windows that look out on a side yard or high-fenced backyard do not require the same amount of privacy as a window that faces the front yard. There is also the question of how you use your bay or bow window. For example, window seat valances don’t work as well on bay and bow windows that are used for storage.

    If you are looking for new or replacement bay or bow windows for your home, contact Wallside Windows of Detroit.

    A Homeowner's Guide to Choosing Exterior Window Trim Color

    Last updated 5 months ago

    In addition to improving your home’s energy efficiency, replacement windows from Detroit’s Wallside Windows will also add beauty inside and out. However, it is the outside beauty that could really translate into extra value, especially if you are thinking about selling your home in the near future. Beautiful replacement windows will increase your home’s curb appeal, which, as a result, should increase a prospective buyer’s interest in your home. Because choosing exterior window trim can be tricky, here are a few tips from the window experts at Wallside Windows.

    Complement or Contrast
    For starters, decide whether you want the window trim to complement or contrast your home’s exterior color. Use a color wheel to help you decide on a color that will help you accomplish your intended design goal.

    Uniform Color
    Exterior window frames usually look best painted in the principal body color. In other words, use the same color for each window trim around your home. Not only will this give your home a more uniform look, but it will naturally draw the eye your beautiful new replacement windows. Experts recommend painting all vertical and horizontal trim elements, including exterior window trim, door frames, and cornices in the main trim color.

    Window Accessories
    If your new replacement windows will have sashes or shutters, make sure that they are the darkest part of your selected color scheme. This method will help your windows seem to recede into the façade, which will give your home a uniform yet understated elegance.

    Exploring Your Glass Options

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Your home is an extension of your personality and a reflection of your personal style. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice your home’s décor when the time comes to purchase replacement windows. Here at Wallside Windows, we offer a wide variety of glass options to fit any budget and any design scheme. From our top-of-the-line Low-E glass to etched decorative glass, there are plenty of options to choose from your new replacement windows. Here is a closer look at some of your glass options from Wallside Windows.

    Low-E Glass
    When it comes to energy-efficient replacement windows, Low-E glass windows are the best place to start. Not only does Low-E glass block up to 50 percent more unwanted solar energy than standard clear glass, but it also blocks nearly twice as much harmful UV radiation. As an EnergyStar® qualified product, Wallside Windows’ Low-E glass promised to provide you with superior energy-efficient performance.

    Etched & Grooved Glass
    If you are looking for decorative replacement windows for doorwalls, you will love our etched and grooved glass windows. A simple cross pattern is often used for beauty and safety, though more decorative motifs are also available to complement any room’s existing design scheme.

    Tempered Glass
    If you are worried about the safety of your replacement windows, consider tempered glass. Approximately four times stronger than normal glass, tempered glass doesn’t break easily, and when it does it doesn’t break into sharp, tiny pieces. That’s why tempered glass is required by law to be used in door lights, bathroom windows near tubs and showers, and windows having glass within 18 inches of the floor.

    These are just a few of the glass options available from Wallside Windows. To see our full selection of glass, visit our website. We also invite you to contact us to set up your free in-home estimate. For a limited time, we are offering half-off every window we make, plus four years no interest and no down payment.
