Great Window Design Can Be Just Around the Corner
Making a change to the windows in your Saginaw – area home is one of the most dramatic moves you can make. Windows today arenâ€™t simply static fixtures that let a bit of light and air in. Today they are design elements that can change the whole dynamic of a room.
Of course, not all windows are created equal. Some offer a lot more bang for the buck than others. But great window design can be just around the corner. Let me explain.
On of the ways to get a truly dramatic impact from your windows is by using them to create a unique and interesting focal point for a room. Thatâ€™s where the unique placement of a corner window can really make a difference. The photo of the bathroom you see here is a good example. By placing it in the corner it letâ€™s in a large amount of light to what otherwise might be a somewhat dark room. Because this bathroom is on the second floor, privacy is not as much of an issue and allows lots of natural light inside. You could argue as to whether the window or the beautiful tub is the focal pointâ€”but the fact is, the tub wouldnâ€™t have as much impact without that gorgeous corner window.
Bathrooms, however, arenâ€™t the only place where a corner window can have a dramatic impact. The corner window you see here in the family room not only let in plenty of natural like, but it also takes advantage of great views. Again, it functions as a design element. It would be hard to find artwork thatâ€™s more interesting and inviting than the unobstructed views out the window.
Youâ€™ll notice that now only do the windows let in a lot of light, but with their floor-to- ceiling design, they visually extend the roomâ€”making it feel bigger and more spacious. And hereâ€™s something many homeowners donâ€™t think about. The direction of the light coming into a home can significantly impact the colors (i.e. walls) of a room. Having light coming from two different directions gives a more balanced sense of color.
