Where you install your new windows can impact not only your curb appeal but also indoor comfort. To help you make the most of your new windows, Skyline Windows of Richmond shares some placement tips below.
Don’t Get Too Preoccupied With the Front of Your Home
What works for the front of your exterior won’t necessarily work for the rest of your home. You can use varying placement patterns and windows, such as wood window options, on the different sides of your facade.
Mix and Match Different Window Types
In the same way that your facade doesn’t determine the rest of your aesthetic, you aren’t restricted by your home’s architectural style. For instance, if you have a Colonial-style home, your choices won’t necessarily be restricted to two evenly spaced double-hung windows placed on both sides of the front door. Contrary to what many homeowners think, there’s always some room for variation as long as the new twist elements complement the overall design.
The Window Style Should Match the Interior
Speaking of complementary design elements, don’t forget about your interior—the kind of windows you install, not to mention where they’re installed, can affect your indoor comfort. Listed below are some recommendations for the most widely used rooms in your home:
- Living room – It’s best to install windows on the south side of your living room, which receives the largest amount of sunlight.
- Dining room – Since the dining room is normally used only at night, most homeowners install a few windows in the dining area.
- Kitchen – Kitchen windows are usually installed above the sink, the area where you’ll be spending a lot of time in. Most contractors will recommend installing an easy-to-open composite window.
Still, feeling a bit confused about where to install your new windows? It’ll be a good idea to consult an experienced window contractor.
