American Farmhouse style windows typically have 4 1/2" to 5 1/2" flat board trim on the sides and head with a 1 3/4" sill nose. A simple drip cap at the head is appropriate, although a small cornice is occasionally used for added style.
To achieve that authentic American Farmhouse styling, or to create a variance all your own, A-Series products provide a choice of three exterior trim profiles and three head trim options; with 11 colors to choose from. For a historically accurate look, our E-Series/Eagle windows and doors are available with up to 5 1/2" flat trim and comes in 50 exterior colors, custom colors, and anodized finishes.
American Farmhouse style window hardware takes its design cues from the Victorian style. However, since the American Farmhouse style is deeply rooted in practicality, only the less ornate examples of Victorian style window hardware are appropriate.
Like its window hardware counterparts, American Farmhouse style door hardware uses the less ornate examples from the Victorian style. Andersen offers a choice of hardware the complements American Farmhouse style homes. Newbury hardware features clean lines and suggests the practicality for which the style is known. For a more ornate look that these homes often borrowed from the Victorian style, Whitmore offers graceful curves with a decorative rope border.
