No matter the style of home you have, you can accentuate your exterior views by updating your windows. Marvin windows are used across the greater Atlanta area, and they are known for a wide variety of window sizes, shapes and styles. Find out below why Marvin windows are perfect for Atlanta style and how you can incorporate them into your home.

Atlanta Home Style Trends

Below are several of the leading home style trends in Atlanta homes and why Marvin windows are a great fit.

More private spaces

Throughout Atlanta, open-concept spaces are giving way to rooms with more privacy, as families spend more time at home. There is a greater demand for private work spaces, learning areas, play rooms and living space. As a result, walls with doors and windows are reappearing where they were previously knocked down. These private spaces may require custom-shaped windows.

Marvin custom shape windows:

  • Fit perfectly in a small or challenging space like a pantry.
  • Add character and personality.
  • Many different materials, styles, shapes and hardware to choose from.
  • Specially handcrafted with your exact project in mind.

Outdoor living spaces

Having an outdoor living area is a must during the mild Atlanta winters. Creating a living space outside results in an entirely new room without adding an extension. Floor-to-ceiling windows, sliding doors and picture windows bring more light into the home and create a sense of indoor-outdoor living. A picture window can act as a picture frame to the outdoor living space, making you feel like you’re outside when you’re in and vice versa.

Marvin picture windows:

  • Can be designed in any shape or size.
  • Multiple picture windows can be installed in the same wall and can extend width and height-wise as far as structural limitations will allow.

Updating historical architecture with new windows

Some of Atlanta’s beautiful historical districts date back to the Civil War. A relatively easy and impactful update you can make to an older home is updating the windows. New casement or double hung windows can make a significant visual impact and save energy.

Embracing your home

Atlanta home inventory has been low, and prices have been rising. Limited stock can mean updating existing homes instead of moving. Making some exterior changes can help a house feel rejuvenated and new. For an exterior refresh, replacing the windows is an excellent first step.  A bay or bow window will offer an extra layer of character, a custom look and the perception of more living space.
