Nashville Home Style Trends

Updating a classic home

According to the National Association of Realtors, Nashville home prices have surged, which has resulted in many homeowners updating their homes. One of the most impactful updates you can make to a Nashville home is updating the windows. Whether you’re updating the casement or double hung windows, new windows throughout the house can make a significant visual impact, better protect your home from inclement weather elements and save energy.

Painted white brick exterior

Many Nashville home exteriors have embraced a white, painted brick aesthetic. If you’re giving your home’s exterior a facelift, replacing the windows will take this facelift to the next level. A bay and bow window will give your home’s exterior an extra layer of character. They also provide a unique and custom look home and offer more living space without adding to the square footage.

  • Create more interior space
  • Give your home a more custom look

Walk-in pantry

Having a dedicated room for your dry goods and kitchen appliances frees up space in your kitchen and gives you additional room to tuck lesser-used items out of the way. It can even be equipped with a coffee bar, refrigerator, ice machine, microwave, or other amenities to make everyday life feel more special. In addition, having a customized window installed in the walk-in pantry adds both a design element and brings natural light into a small, dark space.

Marvin custom shape windows:

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

At-home fitness

As Nashville temperatures dip, it can be tempting to skip that outdoor hike or early morning run. However, as more Nashville residents build at-home workout spaces, it can be easy to complete your Peloton or treadmill workout from the comfort of home. If you still want to have a clear view of the outdoors, a picture window acts as a picture frame to the scenery, giving you a clear view of your outdoor surroundings. A picture window is also energy-efficient, as it doesn’t open or close so that the cold air won’t escape in the summer, and the heat won’t escape in the winter.

Marvin picture windows:

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

Windows to accommodate Nashville’s climate

While Nashville has a temperate climate, it still embraces all four seasons. Marvin windows are made from high-quality, durable materials such as wood and fiberglass, which will safeguard your home from the elements. Also, Marvin windows have high-tech, energy-efficient features to help you make environmentally-conscious decisions when you invest in new windows.
