Have you ever traveled in a neighborhood and noticed a house that simply seemed out of place? Maybe you couldn’t quite describe why you didn’t love the house, even if the materials used to construct it were beautiful, the lawn was neatly trimmed, and the roof sloped at just the right angle. The answer could lie with the house window glass.
If you’re planning to remodel your home and add new insulated glass windows, or if you’re designing a home and want to know how to place the windows, you’re in luck. This blog will tell you why some windows on homes you’ve seen don’t look quite right. We’ll also tell you how you can choose window glass to make sure your home looks great.
How Else Can You Plan for Window Glass Replacement?
Of course, good window repairs are about much more than how the windows look from the outside. You also use your windows to brighten and beautify the indoors.
Apart from considering the architectural rules above, ask yourself the following questions.
How Much Light Will the Window Let In?
Walk around the house and work with a contractor to determine how much light the window will let in. If it’s on the east or west sides of the house, will it let in too much light? Have you planted a large tree outside one of the would-be windows that destroys the view instead of enhancing it? Choose a window that optimizes natural light indoors without overwhelming you.
How will Windows Affect Each Room?
Your windows’ shapes should unify your home’s exterior, but they should also match your design for each room.
Living rooms usually have the largest windows to let in the most light, but only when they’re located at the front of the house. Kitchens usually have smaller, symmetrical windows above the sink. Bedrooms and bathrooms usually have windows that optimize privacy but let in a cozy amount of light.
The windows you select for these different rooms are differently sized, you won’t destroy your home’s uniformity from the outside as long as you use the same trim and place the windows symmetrically. Your contractor and architect can help you determine how to make sure each window matches the room it’s placed in while optimizing its look from the outside.
