When it’s time to install new windows for your home, there are so many different styles and types to choose from. Investing in windows is a decision you make sparingly, which is why it’s crucial to prioritize quality materials at an affordable price. There are a number of important factors to consider but most notably, the room itself greatly impacts which window is best suited.
So how do you choose the windows that are right for you? The experts at Glass Repair Canada have put together this guide to help you pick windows that will fit best specifically to each room in your house in mind.
Living Room Windows
When you’re adding or picking window panes for a living room, think about where the sun will be coming in at all times of the day. Will it add glare to your TV? Will there be excessive heat added to the room? If you’re planning to have a large piece of furniture right under the window such as a couch or table, you should consider a casement window so it can be easily opened by a crank. Living room windows are the perfect opportunity to add natural light to your space. They will allow you to see out into the world whether it’s your beautiful garden in the back, or just being able to watch your kids play with their neighborhood friends.
The kitchen is usually one of the busiest and most-used rooms in the home. As a result, it needs to be just as aesthetically pleasing as it is a functional space. As the sink is typically the focal point of the kitchen, you’ll want to accentuate this feature with large windows. Homeowners usually prefer a sliding window in this space because it’s easy to operate no matter how deep your counter space is. It also lets in a lot of light so you can look at your beautiful property while you’re washing dishes. Also, kitchen windows that open are key because you never know when dinner is going to go sideways and you need some fresh air ventilation ASAP!
The bedroom is supposed to be a quiet and comfortable place where you can get some quality shuteye – so why not invest in some windows with extra sound control? Curate the ultimate view for you to wake up every morning and get the most amount of natural light possible into your space during the day. Bedroom windows with proper ventilation are also key to enjoying a good night’s sleep so you can stay cool in the summer.
While ventilation is key for any bathroom to keep things fresh and free of mold or mildew, it’s also important to consider privacy. Frosted glass is a classy way to keep things private without sacrificing natural light.
Dining Room Windows
Designers usually say to have as much natural light as possible but in the case of a dining room, do you really need that much light? Most dining rooms are used in the evening and it’s become a trend to have smaller windows or no windows at all in a dining room. Instead of a dining room with windows, homeowners will choose to use a fireplace, furniture, or pieces of art as a focal point to create the room’s desired tone and character.
