There are many styles of Colonial homes – Dutch, French, Spanish, New England and Georgian, for example. These homes look best with small double hung windows with grids that create the look of multiple panes. These divided panes are usually referred to as “6 over 6” or “8 over 8” depending on the number of panes in each sash. French swinging or French-style sliding doors are best for patios.
