Maximizing Views Through Proper Window UseOctober 20, 2015
All windows provide views to one degree or the other. If you want to capitalize on some great views and bring in natural light, you have to be more careful and discerning with your window choices. [company_name] offers these simple tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your windows and your views.
Start with the right windows
The first step to maximizing views is to get the “right” replacement windows in Schenectady, NY from the get-go. There are three styles that are perfect choices:
● Picture Windows: With no moving parts, the ability to open up, and the largest area of glass, the picture window is built precisely for framing that beautiful view outside your home.
● Casement Windows: Essentially picture windows that can open up across their entire breadth, this type of window allows for great ventilation, while maintaining a large viewable area.
● Sliding Windows: These windows also open up and are very easy to operate.
Any of these window options would be ideal for this particular project and goal. The only differentiating factor is ventilation.
Having one large picture window or a cluster of replacement windows in Poughkeepsie, NY are both viable options, depending on your taste and preferences. Our replacement window experts can help you design an arrangement of windows to utilize the openings you already have. If you need to maintain ventilation in a room, you may consider a cluster of sliding windows.
Naturally, the proper placement of your windows should be directly overlooking the view, and the angle of the view, that you’re trying to maximize. This is the most important consideration. If you are not too particular about what is seen, you can also prioritize lighting—positioning your windows in area where there is most sunlight. It may help to study the movement or path of the sun throughout the day to determine proper positioning.
It might take a little bit of research and a bit of work, but you can certainly use great window options to capture the views around your home in the best ways possible. Give Renewal by Andersen of Eastern New York a call today and we will be more than happy to help you figure these all out.
