Do You Have Enough Windows in Your Home?

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Do you have enough windows in your home? Not every home is built with an adequate amount. And other homes are built with poorly positioned or designed windows that either let in too much light, or not enough. This can make heating or cooling your home a nightmare – not to mention the inflated energy bills!

Let’s take a look at some reasons why you should consider getting some additional windows installed in your home. We’ll consider things from interior design tips to simple and practical ideas that will save you money, and give you peace of mind.

A Dining Room With Large Windows

Improve Indoor Outdoor Flow

Indoor-outdoor flow is the trending home design theme at the moment. People are renovating so they have outdoor dining and living spaces and are using natural timber tones indoors to create the feel of the forest. The idea is to be able to live in a blend of the two while remaining comfortable. Having more windows in your home allows for more natural light and fresher air to flow into your home, lifting your spirits and the entire feel of your haven!

They Don’t Have to Be Huge

You don’t have to go installing full-sized windows to spruce up your place a bit. You can think outside the box and get some smaller, porthole type windows installed for a nautical feel to your home. If you wanted to really go all out with this idea you could even re-purpose an actual porthole for the frame. It’s perfect for the bathroom!

How’s the View?

Another reason to install some extra windows is that you may be able to open up one of your rooms, especially if it overlooks some trees or greenery or other such views. A large or even whole wall window can really add some space to the room as well as offering a gorgeous view. It will also help to increase the value of your property should you consider selling in the future!

They Can Keep You Safe

Brand new windows are going to have sturdy frames and thick glazing – something that your old windows may not have. Both of these things provide an extra layer of security to your home and help to deter would-be thieves from gaining access!

Now you are well equipped with a number of reasons to add some more windows to your home the next time you renovate!
