A traditional home is one of the most popular styles because it draws from the characteristics of one or more architectural periods, without falling into just one category. It can include a combination of comfort and elegance while also conveying a classic look. The exteriors are often constructed from brick, stone or stucco with minor embellishments. Interiors are calm, orderly and predictable with an underlying neutral color palette.
Milgard has provided windows and patio doors for a variety of traditional homes designed for new construction and replacement window remodeling projects. We’ve pulled together three of our favorite real stories from our blog to provide you with a “Best Of” traditional homes collection.
1) A New Home Construction Project Chooses Tan Vinyl Windows
Did you know that you can select windows with painted vinyl frames? On this traditional home, the owners incorporated tan colored window frames into their design which was the perfect match for their neutral, stucco and stone exterior.
The interior of the frames were also tan and the homeowner chose to accent them with glossy white trim, another traditional touch. The white crown molding matched the window trim and elevated the look.
