How to make the perfect windows

Postby nialaura11 » 15 Feb 2013, 17:14

I wanted to make this tutorial, because I sometimes know how hard it can be to make windows look perfect on a house.

A normal house
For a simple, plain house, you might find it easier to do windows going all the way around, made of glass or glass panes:

Or you mgiht choose to make it a bit less simple and do larger windows:

Image

Also, you could do posh look windows, that don't go all the way around:
Image
Image

Or you could do this with fences:

A larger house
So, as your houses get more complex, you might find you want to use different techniques throughout, here is the window all the way round technique:
Image
Image

Here is another technique I think looks cute, the glass blocks, mixed with fences:
Image
Image


With this style house, it's difficult to use many different techniques, but if you like, you can always experiment.

A two story house
I find that with two story houses, it can always be difficult to get the style of window you want. Here is the glass pane technique:
Image
Image

The fence style really matches the material and style of this house:

Image

And finally, here is the netherbrick fence and glass pane window:

I hope this tutorial has been useful, or will be useful for you in the future.
