The term “modern” can mean different things to different people. For some, it could mean contemporary design, such as horizontal lines, flat roofs, and grille-less windows. For others, it could be a reference to the eponymous architectural style that became popular in the 1920s. “Modern” also evokes a feel of being “fresh” and “in the moment”, which is what we’ll focus on: how your windows in Lincoln can add modern flair to your home.
A major element of modern design is the use of natural light, whereas traditional architecture relied on candlelight, later electrical lighting, as the primary source of indoor illumination. Incorporating this feature when choosing replacement windows pays off not just aesthetically, but practically as well. Less reliance on electrical lighting means less energy consumption.
There are also the health benefits of daylighting, one of which is keeping your circadian rhythm (i.e. your sleep-wake cycle) on track and preventing sleep-phase disorders that could lead to chronic sleep debt. By installing windows that follow an east-to-west orientation, you can take advantage of maximum daylighting in your home.
Contemporary designs are aimed away from ”ordinary” design and more towards streamlining. Modern windows in Bellevue, in particular, lean towards more glass areas and less obstructions. While grilles aren’t entirely detrimental to window design, they would look out of place in a contemporary setting.
Fortunately, modern window frames are made from modern materials like our own Fibrex material, which combines the strength and stability of wood and the low maintenance benefits of vinyl. These benefits allow the creation of slimmer frames that have bigger glass areas without compromising structure.
Contemporary design lets you easily incorporate new technology into your home, which means you can incorporate modern conveniences into your choice of replacement windows without them looking out of place. Our replacement windows, for instance, let you enjoy energy-efficient windows and improved security hardware without sacrificing design.
