The Effect of Windows on a House Design

There are many reasons why you should consider build your new home with lots of windows. They look attractively modern and are quite an eco-friendly choice.

A great benefit of installing many windows is the useful space that they create. Windows allow natural light so you will have less of a need for energy draining light installations. The more light you direct in your house the lower the wattage you will need.

Windows are also an opportunity for ingenious use of space. You can get windows that act as solar panels, pulling in the sun’s power in a clean way without having to install some on your roof or in you garden, which you don’t want to clutter up.

WindowWindows – especially big ones, like those floor to ceiling windows you can see often in architecture magazines – can create a sense of more space, making a small apartment or house feel as though it is many square meters larger than what you actually have.

For those living in very wintery regions, windows can be built to strategically receive some sunlight in during the winter to bring some warmth in your home.

They also make a room more interesting, transforming a wall into a frame for a glimpse into a garden or a panorama – depending on your location, obviously.

Having many windows in your home will also help with a fresh supply of air and the perfume of any flowers in your garden or on your window sill.

Buying specially designed eco-friendly windows will make a substantial difference. From proper sealing, to prevent cold air entering through imperfections in the frame, to stopping hot air from escaping.

There are many different types of windows – from expensive eco-friendly windows with high energy ratings to a beautifully designed house with modern or old stained glasses finishing: as with your true love, you just need to find The Ones!
