For example, you can get old fashioned windows that will go well with an older, antique-y type home. A more modern home would naturally look better with contemporary windows.

Window replacement is a major renovation for your home, so don’t rush into it, but do your research and think about each factor. If you’re hiring a contractor, do everything you can to ascertain he’s reliable; make sure you’re satisfied with the quality and look of the windows before choosing them.
