Windows aren’t just there to make your home brighter and provide added ventilation. You can use them to create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor space. By choosing the right replacement windows, you can make the most of your location’s captivating view.
Read on to discover ways you can use windows to capture beautiful outdoor views.
Choose Larger Windows
Larger windows will open up a room, make it brighter, and enhance its atmosphere. They will also give you an unobstructed view of the outdoors. Consider high windows if you’re concerned about your privacy or you’d like to save more wall space for decor or artwork.
Make sure to choose windows that complement your home’s style. Casement, picture or bay windows would work well in contemporary homes. Older houses usually have single or double-hung windows, which don’t offer as much glass area because of their sash frames and divided lites. Adding more weight and width the windows will increase natural light and bring them closer together on the wall for a seamless look.
Creating an Uninterrupted View
Homes in scenic locations typically have majestic windows on one side, where the living space acts as a private observation deck. While these are made possible by high and vaulted ceilings, there are different ways to stretch views, even in smaller homes.
Consider patio doors as they offer some of the biggest standard panes of glass. They also slide and swing, allowing you to connect indoor and outdoor areas. However, if patio doors aren’t an option, you can still go for windows. The largest casement windows are similar to the size of patio door panels and they can be stationary or operational. Then there are also specialty windows, which you can be customized to fit any area of your home.
