The use of natural light in interior spaces, sometimes called “day lighting,” has a plethora of benefits. Increasing the amount of natural light in your home reduces your reliance on artificial light during the day (also reflected in your electric bill!) while boosting your sense of well-being. It can increase occupant productivity and comfort, provide mental and visual stimulation, boost occupant mood, and can even dramatically reduce energy costs. It also adds aesthetic value and enjoyment to the home that artificial light cannot achieve. Our window and door systems are high-quality, energy-efficient, and installed by experts who can enhance the look, functionality, and energy savings of your home. Here are 3 ways to light up your life, ranging from do-it-yourself to professional remodeling projects:
Bay or Bow Windows: Bay and bow windows are created by combining three or more windows together so that they angle out beyond the house wall. They can be casement, double-hung or picture units depending on the need. By using more windows, bay and bow windows allow more light in and also give you extra space inside your room. Bow windows frequently allow more light to come into the room since they have more glass panes than bay windows. Bow windows can be wrapped around the corner of a building, forming a unique turret shape on the outside and an enticing nook on the inside. This advantageous option also allows for a view from two sides of the home. They add contour and class to any room and greatly increase the amount of natural light available to suit your living room, bedroom, or study.
Casement Window: If you want big views and bountiful breezes, a casement window is the right choice for you. They provide strength and security with these sturdy yet attractive styles of windows. They look clean and appealing spanning the entire wall of a room with more brightness. Casement windows are hinged on the side and crank open outward to the left or right allowing for full top to bottom ventilation. They are easy to operate, so you won’t be frustrated every time you want to let the breeze in. Plus, their energy efficiency will provide more savings on your bill compared to your current windows. They’re solid, secure, and have a weather-tight seal.
Specialty Window: If you have a space in your home where you’d like to bring in more light, yet you don’t have the room for a full array of large windows, customized specialty windows are an excellent choice. We offer dozen of shapes with wide range of size. Often combined or joined to another operable window, Specialty window can add a distinctive touch to the look of your home. They can add a distinct flair and character to any room and exterior. Specialty shape windows let you choose from a variety of uncommon shapes, including elegant arches, striking angles and compelling curves. Used alone or in combination with other windows, they add curb appeal and enhance the character of your home. Add windows above and around entrance doors, rounded shapes in a room to contrast sharp, squared angles, or put a few segments in strategic places to let the light shine in right where you want it.
