Paintable windows- worth it?
We've decided on the OKNA windows. After enduring many painful window salesman pitches and researching on our own, we liked them the best.
However, I am torn between the 800 and Starmark. The Starmark are paintable but about 20% more. I had always wanted paintable b/c my trim is a creamy white and I didnt want the stark white vinyl window against it (we currently have all wood original windows). But now that I am on the cusp of ordering I am second-guessing. Painting is more maintenance but does it change the look/feel of a room?
Can anyone who had this debate with themselves tell me what you decided and how you feel about that decision now?
I also considered doing the paintable for the first floor and the vinyl elsewhere (I feel like I dont really look at my windows in the bedrooms!) but DH isnt a major fan of that idea. I might be able to talk him into it. The windows are identical on the outside.
