A Larger Home After Replacement Windows

By August 5, 2019No Comments

As your family grows over the years, it’s not very likely that you would wish for a smaller home. In fact, you might wish for something even the slightest bit larger. While you may not have the space or the money to add on another room on the back of the house, you will likely have to get replacement windows in Salt Lake City, UT at some point. Most homeowners replace the windows in their home only once in their lifetime so when you get ready for the process yourself, you want to get things right. If you want your home to look and even feel larger when you are done with the installation, consider some of these tips.

Get Bay Or Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are similar to one another in that they jut out of the house. They actually add space to the room by bowing and bending outside of the home. You can make a small living room feel larger, an eat in kitchen have room for another chair, or a bedroom have space for a reading nook. You won’t want to add these windows to every room, but if you have one space that would work with them and you want to add room to that area, they can be a great addition. Plus, they look really cool architecturally on the outside as well.

Remember Natural Light

Natural light can work wonders for any home. Whenever you have more natural light in a space, it looks and feels bigger than it did before. Even if you put in similar windows, they will likely bring in more light. Frames are smaller today and glass space is larger. But if there are things you can do to optimize the light, you should. Consider adding windows, replacing a bank of windows with a picture window, or enlarging areas of windows. The more natural light you have, the larger your rooms will feel.

Casement Windows

Casement windows are a great window style if you want your home to feel bigger. They swing out from the house on a hinge and catch the air, bringing it in. When you have the windows open, it feels like the outside world on the other side of the wall is more accessible and closer, which makes your home feel larger and more open.
