Why Windows are a Crucial Part of Home Improvement

by V Allison on Jan 6, 2013

Many people ignore the importance of windows when it comes to improving the design of their home. Glass is a versatile and beautiful material which really can finish off a great design.

To many people, windows are simply something that you look out of and that let light in. A functional feature and nothing more. That viewpoint severely limits the way in which windows can be used though, not just as a means of making your home look better, but also making it more efficient. Light, heat and potential damage to furniture are just three of the factors which windows can help homeowners to manage more effectively.

Stained Glass and Much More

One obvious way in which windows can contribute to the style and sense of space in your home is by the use of stained glass. While many people might think that stained glass windows are a flamboyant feature which is more at home in a church or large public building, in actual fact they can be used tastefully and discretely to add a touch of class to your dwelling. PVC windows can also feature stained designs, increasing the range of options available.

The key with using stained glass in PVC windows, or any other type, is that it complements the rest of the home's design. Choosing the right colour is important, as is selecting the type of images that might be utilised in the window's design. Highly inappropriate or tasteless designs will only serve to cheapen the effect of your home. Design features should match the theme of the home. For example, if you have opted for a Mediterranean type theme, then images from the Ancient World of Greece and Rome might add that final touch of quality to your windows.

Space and Light Management

But windows are not simply there to be looked at and looked through. They also contribute to how light flows around a room and to the perception of space in the room. Intelligent use of windows can make a room look much bigger and more welcoming. Using windows intelligently also helps to create sections in rooms, which means that you do not need to use as many physical fittings, such as screens or curtains.

Using smart glass and other high technology materials also helps to reduce the need for additional clutter like curtains and blinds. In small homes in particular, this can be an important way of saving space and using the room more efficiently and effectively. It can also give an impression of 'cleaner' design, with the curves and edges of space being smoother and more relaxed.

It can therefore be seen that making windows a central part of your design plans is key to getting the kind of home environment that you want. When in doubt, speak to a window design specialist. They should be able to make the kind of sensible suggestions which will lead to visitors gasping in envy when they visit.
