Looking for a way to increase your home’s natural lighting? Then why not go for a window that can add to your existing architecture as well? Palladian windows are an extension of the historical style, and many homeowners today are smitten by their grand appearance. Read on to help you decide if it’s the right choice for your home.
Palladian windows start at around $200 per window. The total price depends on the cost of installation and the quality of materials used. Contact a window installer for cost estimates in your area, as well as information about federal tax rebates and incentives.
Since Palladian windows are not designed to increase ventilation, they won’t endure the same wear and tear of regular windows. Therefore, they are a very durable window option.
Palladian windows require the same maintenance of regular windows, although they may be a bit harder to reach.
The Palladian window is characterized by the rounded-arched top, a main window in the center, and two small windows on the side, typically with some sort of column dividing the two.
Palladian windows are usually installed on a second story, above the front entrance of the home.
The Palladian window is a derivative of Palladian architecture developed by the Italian architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). Since that time period, Palladian architecture has come and gone throughout Europe, changing and developing over time into the style we are familiar with today.
