There is no single style that epitomizes “modern.” However, modern homes tend to feature large picture, casement, awning and horizontal sliding aluminum windows with very slim profiles and very little, if any, ornamentation. These simple, clean lines complement the home's sleek appearance. Narrow-frame vinyl windows and doors offer a way to update windows with greater energy efficiency but maintain the slim profiles of their window frames. Large picture windows over half vents also are popular for allowing air to come through while keeping their full views.
