Corner windows are always a welcome addition to any home. They add the “wow” factor to any space, making your rooms more functional and stylish.
To use them to best effect, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle recommends these tips:
Frame Breath-Taking Views
Like bay windows, corner glass units take sweeping snapshots of the outside world. For maximum outdoor-viewing experience, install them in areas with scenic landscapes. In the city, for example, where all you see are vehicles and neighboring homes, place your corner windows on the upper floors. Anywhere you live, the view never fails to be spectacular above.
Losing your entire solid walls in favor of glass would change the way your home looks and feels. Oversized windows let in a profusion of sunlight and create an illusion of more space, especially when used in small rooms.
Rather than using fixed units alone, install one or two casement windows for greater functionality. Apart from ventilation, the casement is the best style for egress.
Set Them High
Using corner clerestories bring in plenty of natural illumination to the rooms they serve in a subtle way. When wall space isn’t at its premium, we recommend them to enjoy adequate daylighting. High-rise corner windows capture sunlight effectively without giving up privacy, making them ideal for the shower area.
Pair with Patio Doors
A window replacement is a golden opportunity to incorporate your patio doors with other glass units. Other than heightening the benefits of corner windows, the combination would create a smooth transition between your outdoor and indoor areas. The seamless connection would introduce nature into your interior and make your patio or deck seem larger.
Despite their many advantages, adding corner windows requires some serious thought. Consider key factors, such as curb appeal and heat gain, to optimize these glass units. To schedule your free, in-home consultation in Seattle, call Renewal by Andersen of Seattle now at (206) 686-7733.
