Windows are an important feature of your home that captures the eyes of all your guests. If you want to achieve style, elegance, and functionality in the design of your windows, here are the top seven tips to follow:
1. Stop wasting natural light
Natural light is always more pleasing to the eye than artificial light. Natural light will add richness to your room and can increase your body’s serotonin levels. Use large, frameless glass windows that bring in additional sunlight into your home.
2. Go for a modern look
Using a modern look to your windows can give a sleek, clean style to your home. Using black frames or doing away with frames and going with frameless windows can add to the modern theme of your home.
3. Cut down on unwanted noise
If you live in a busy area or in the middle of a city, you may want to consider getting soundproofed windows. These windows can allow you to have peace and quiet, escaping the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
4. Add a personal touch
Add a personal touch to your windows through elegant blinds, curtains, or shutters. If you want to enhance your home’s security, the use of durable security shutters will make your home more secure while adding to its elegance.
5. Use appropriate materials
Windows are a place for heat loss in the home. Ensure exterior windows are either double or single glazed to minimise heat loss. Also, look into a durable tempered glass that is stronger and safer than standard glass.
6. Make a statement
You can use either contemporary or modern designs for your windows to make a statement. Use frameless window panels, custom arched shaped windows, or casement windows to highlight your home’s design.
7. Keep it Eco-Friendly
Have your windows eco-friendly, but taking advantages of features such as insulated glass and low-E glass to reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Many of these features enhance the insulation of your home and can lower your energy bill.
