Inspiration: Windows & Doors

I have never really paid attention to windows. Yes I know there are solid windows, ones with grids, etc. I know you either open them or don't. But now that I am actually having to pick windows for my own home, I didn't realize how many options there are. And then I was of the mind frame they all have to match, but apparently not.


So I thought I knew what I wanted, but then I didn't, and then Sue (MIL) has her ideas which I had never thought of and now my brain feels like mush. For example, we had all our windows being 5 ft in height. She pointed out, well if you have 9ft ceilings, I think they need to be 6ft windows. ohhhhh....that makes sense, shit.


Then there's the issue with I like the "look" of crank windows, because they are more open, non-view obstructing. Kyle hates them due to the fact too many parts to break. Always so rational.


I feel like the only thing I know for certain is the windows will be white...except sometimes I dream of black. But Kyle has vetoed that, so they will be white.


Then there is doors. You can see my original Door post here. Well I had my dream door picked out...but now I'm considering grids. Ok. Then I was for certain my laundry room was going to have a dutch door, but now its not and I forget why. Then I was for sure not going to have a door going to the patio off the dining room, but now I probably am.


Are you keeping track of all this or have I lost you too?

This wood-and-glass door nearly fades into the background as it's painted the same ivory hue as the rest of the house and could easily be mistaken for a window: http://www.bhg.com/home-improvement/door/exterior/farmhouse-front-door/?socsrc=bhgpin042114goingincognitopage=4
Possible Front door option- mine will have windows on sides & top

Window wants...don't know if its gonna happen

Window "look" I love.

If you have any tips, suggestions or alcohol to help me with this please speak up! Thanks.

  1. All the door and window inspirations that you’ve shared are wonderful. I guess it's really hard to decide what kind of door and window you want if you have a lot of ideas to choose from. Well, I hope that you have settled with one by now. I'm sure your house will look great and bright once you implement those designs. Have a great day, Mandy!
