Proper ventilation, level of privacy, external light sources, and ultimate comfort are all factors to be considered when choosing a window design that meets your needs. Different styles of windows are better suited to certain architectural styles of home. For example, casement windows work well with ranch style homes. Consider the look, placement, and proportion of new windows internally and externally to maximize visual appeal. Geographical location is also a factor to consider. Be mindful of where the sun will come into a room during certain points in the day. Airflow, what type of view, and window treatments must also be considered.
- The choice of the window must be consistent with the home’s architectural style.
- Appropriate window shape, orientation, and placement prevent a home from unnatural heating or cooling throughout the year.
- Consider the purpose of each window, whether it is meant to let light in, control airflow, etc.
“When it comes to ventilation and light control, windows and window treatments play a crucial role in bringing fresh air and natural light from the outdoors inside your home while filtering the harsh elements.”
