Casement or double hung window on front elevation
DH and I are doing research on window options and have the following questions.
Is it strange to mix double hung and casement windows on front elevation? Trying to find pictures online but couldn't find anything that could help make this decision. Part of our elevation has the windows from the garage that we know we will not open/use them at all but since they are facing the front, our architect has suggested using casement windows for the look. We are thinking may be we can use double-hung on those and casement for the rest of the windows on the front due to the cost difference. Do casement window really make a big difference on the overall appearance?
Next big question we have is whether to have grid or not on the glass and would love to hear about everyone's experiences. We've also seen windows with grid on top but clear at the bottom. This may be a silly question to ask but we haven't gotten any quote yet, do windows with more grids generally cost more?
