7 Ideas for Choosing the Right Windows

7 Ideas for Choosing the Right Windows
By johncal Dec 03, 2018


Are you building your dream home? You need to think about your windows Seattle, WA. Gorgeous, well-designed windows will elevate your home and contribute to your comfort level. Choose badly and you won’t be able to enjoy sunlight streaming through the glass.  

Windows are an odd thing. They have a huge effect on the room’s appeal yet most people hardly notice them. People are more likely to gush about the natural light provided by a window than they are to talk about the glass itself.  

Choose the right window style is easy if you know what you’re doing.  

Here are some tips you can follow.  

1. Consider Your Style 

Your home was built in a specific style. What is it? The windows should match the architecture. Small, cottage-style windows would look out of place on the walls of most mansions while sweeping, floor-to-ceiling windows could overwhelm a smaller property.  

Therefore, before you decide on the structure of your windows, take a good look at the property. What makes sense? 

2. Think About Color  

Your window frames can add a splash of color to your home’s exterior. You can also add a lovely accent color to your home’s windows. Choosing the right color scheme can be a challenge. For inspiration, you can look around online on sites like Instagram and Pinterest.  

3. Remember the Sun 

Use your home’s position relative to the sun to plan its windows. You want to strike the right balance between too much and too little sunlight. For example, you might want light in your bedroom when you wake up in the morning but you don’t want too much sunlight flooding your living room when you’re trying to watch TV.  

4. Create a Focal Point  

The right window can become the focal point of any room. You can decide in advance if this is what you’re trying to achieve. You can use creative mullions to make the windows really pop.  

5. Renovate 

You don’t have to start from scratch to update your windows. A renovation project can completely alter your home’s aesthetics. Windows are often overlooked during remodeling project. But they shouldn’t be! If you don’t have the funds for a complete renovation, you can change the window dressings. Even a small change can create a dramatic effect.  

6. Don’t Forget About the Interior  

Not only do you need think about how the windows will affect your home’s exterior, you have to think about the interiors as well. The right design is critical.  

For ideas, take a look at your friends and family’s homes. You can get ideas anywhere you look.  

7. Add More 

You can add more windows or enlarge a smaller one if you want. A lot of windows can make your home look more elegant.
