For Every Taste and Style

The Facade: A Question of Style

Whether old, modern, English or Quebecois, the architectural character of a house relates to the area and era in which it was built. Windows must be selected according to the architecture of the building to avoid creating an incoherent exterior and loss of authenticity and value.

Old houses often have small mullioned windows, while English homes are adorned with double hung windows and French architecture with casement windows. The colour of the frames should match the exterior cladding. Colours that blend with the environment are generally preferred. A stone or cultured stone ledge or head jamb adds elegance.

At Solarcan, we make and sell a complete range of doors and windows that blend with your architecture and match your style.

Window Treatments

Window treatments are not only a matter of looks. Inside, anything can be done but certain factors will help you choose!

Direction

A south-facing window can be a considerable source of heat in winter. However, to keep your home cool in summer, you might want to install sheers, venetian blinds or shutters that reduce brightness without plunging the room into darkness.

Size

Although new windows are very efficient, installing thick curtains will provide considerable protection against the cold and retain heat indoors during harsh winter evenings.

Privacy

On a window facing the street or neighbours, pleated blinds or opaque curtains are a wise choice. These types of window treatments provide intimacy and can be opened or closed as you wish and according to the time of day. There are also certain types of blinds that open downwards instead of upwards, leaving the entire top of the window bare.

The Rest Is a Question of Taste and Colour
