Windows are very important when it comes to home design. This is mainly because they're responsible for making a particular area look spacious, ventilated, and well illuminated.
The importance of window placement is best observed when there is a miscalculation in size, type, or the location. The rooms become very bright or extremely dim, or there is a lack of proper ventilation. But when planned properly and designed keeping everything in mind, windows can make a pleasant change and addition to a home's decor, both in terms of its quality and appearance. They can also work as noise cancelling solutions if you choose the right type of window glass such as AIS AcousticglasTM.
Thus, when planning window placement in a house, it is important to keep a few things in mind:
1. Choosing windows
When choosing the apt window, it is always advised to keep in mind the design of the house and what will suit it. One thing to note is that if the windows you choose are consistent in the way they're handled, with regard to grills, trim and patterns, they can easily manage variations when it comes to the quantity and the style. Windows should also be placed according to the orientation of the house in terms of sun and the wind.
2. Window styles
When you're adding new windows to the same wall, the basic trick is consistency. Compatible trim, grill patterns and styles should complement each other, instead of contradicting each other.
The windows should be used according to the rooms they're being placed in. In the living room, it is a good idea to use bigger windows. A good view only adds to the charm. Dining rooms, on the other hand, do not require too many windows because of their limited usage. Family rooms have a variety of activities going on; hence, it is a good idea to make sure that windows do not disrupt any activity. For example, extreme glare and low sunlight angles can interfere with TV viewing. The kitchen, however, works best with casements as double-hung windows over sinks can be difficult to open and close. Smart Glass windows can also be used to enhance the privacy of a bedroom and block heat and light without making the rooms look claustrophobic.
4. Window height
There are many structural issues to consider when deciding the window height. It is a good idea to consult an architect when it comes to these structural decisions, like the height of the window in relation to that of the ceiling. At Glasxperts, we have many choices one can explore.
Some houses are blessed with a wonderful view, and hence, it is important to use this to our advantage when placing the windows. If the view is exceptionally beautiful in one area, it is a good idea to use a window to accentuate that attribute.
Apart from following these steps, it is always recommended to consult an architect and the technicians from Glasxperts for proper selection and installation of your glass windows.
