Why Size Doesn’t Have to Be a Deciding Factor for Your Bad Axe Home

Does size really matter when it comes to choosing new windows for your Bad Axe home? It really comes down to what you mean by size. There’s no question that the trend in home design these days is to take advantage of as much natural light as possible. Window size naturally plays a part in that.

The specific size of your windows, however, isn’t as important as how well the windows work with the overall design of your home.

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.

The “Tiny House” movement has gotten a lot of press in the last few years. It’s been fascinating to see how these ultra-small homes have been designed to pack lots of comfortable living space into a very small area.

A Minneapolis designer named Chris Strom used Marvin Doors and Windows (and some wicked design skills) to demonstrate that point when remodeling a 380 square foot guesthouse recently. Strom knew that the small space could make things feel cramped, so he “borrowed” the views and visual space from the outside and brought them inside.

Strom used Marvin Ultimate Awning windows because their casual, informal feel fit the overall character of the home.

The two large awning windows also help to vent the interior by allowing warm air to escape without getting trapped in the high ceiling.

A large sliding patio door opens to the deck and yard and creates a feeling of additional space—even though that space actually exists outside of the home.

Chances are pretty good that your Bad Axe home is a bit larger than this 380 square foot gem. The point is that you don’t have to have a huge home to benefit from windows that are designed to maximize the space you do have. You can let in plenty of natural light and make the transition between indoors and outdoors almost seamless. And the good news is that Marvin offers you an incredible number of options when it comes to the style, finishes, and sizes that are right for your situation.
