Can You Mix Styles in Your Midland Home?
One of the unwritten laws of home design is that one simply doesn’t mix styles. And while it may be an unwritten rule, it’s one that designers and builders have adhered to rather stringently for years.
So does that mean you have to stick with the existing style in your Midland home?
The owners of the Nebraska home you see pictured here didn’t feel constrained to stick with one style. You can tell from the distinct differences in the appearance from the front of the home and the back that uniformity wasn’t the goal. And still, there was a definite cohesiveness to the overall look and feel.
Naturally, the owners considered more than the exterior appearance of the home when they designed it. The photo you see here shows how they carried out the very contemporary look of the front of the home into the interior. The exposed heating ducts are a definite nod to yet another style—the industrial influence that gained a lot of momentum in residential structures in recent years.
Mixing various styles is no longer the taboo that it once was in home design—if it’s done thoughtfully and carefully.
Of course, installing windows that work with your variety of styles is critical as well. That’s why the owners of the home you see here selected large Integrity Wood-Ultrex Sliding French Doors to provide easy access to the home along with Integrity Wood-Ultrex Casement and Awning windows and Integrity Wood-Ultrex Polygon windows for the rest of the home—to let in lots of natural light.
In addition to style concerns, the homeowners and design team had to consider that because of the location (Nebraska) the doors and windows would also be subjected to the severe hail and windstorms that are common in the area.
That durability was another significant factor for choosing window and door solutions from Integrity Windows and Doors.
You may not be incorporating such a variety of styles in your Midland home, but it’s good to know that no matter what style you need, you can find doors and windows that will look great in your home and will deliver the ease of use and performance that will make your home look and feel great.
