Many homeowners are considering matching their windows’ appearance with their roofing, siding and the rest of their home’s exterior. However, it’s important not to forget that a window’s interior side shouldn’t be forgotten as it should also match the room. Here’s how to do this.
Inspect the Glass Size
The size of your glass panes should be proportionate to your room as it will significantly affect the way your room looks. For example, if you have a small living room, installing large windows will reduce your privacy and allow too much sunlight inside. On the other hand, having small windows will make your living space too dim, with little ventilation. Make sure that you strike the right balance between ventilation, lighting and the view for your room.
Think About Your Room’s Function
You should think about your room’s function when picking out new windows. A window near your kitchen shouldn’t be too big since meal prepping under direct sunlight can be bothersome, and you won’t appreciate the view as much during dinnertime. Window experts state that a small or average-sized window will suffice for this kind of room.
Positioning is Important
Even the most sophisticated windows won’t look as beautiful if they aren’t positioned properly. A great example of this situation would be applied on bathroom windows. If they’re set too low, it will reduce your privacy. In the living room, having a large window would sound great on paper, but it would cause glare, which is distracting for your viewing experience.
