ACHIEVE A BALANCE OF LIGHT IN YOUR HOME

Good design can bring that all-important natural light into your home. Natural light can be a powerful architectural tool in defining interior spaces and giving them character. Nonetheless, introducing daylight to your home requires careful window placement and a well-thought-of interior design. You also need to consider other aspects, such as color, balanced light levels, visual comfort, and fading of furnishings.

Achieve A Balance Of Light In Your Home

A balance of light is essential for visual comfort and for ease in performing visual tasks. Direct sunlight should be diffused over a large area, for it to be useful and more comfortable for the eyes. Let the trusted name in quality windows and doors in St. Louis provide some tips to help you ensure balanced natural light into your home.

Choose the Right Window Treatments

Blinds, interior shades, and drapes can diffuse or block natural light. Install a loosely woven drape in a dark color to reduce glare while allowing a clear view of the outdoors. In contrast, it may be difficult to see through light-colored drapes, as these tend to appear bright when hit by direct sunlight.

You can also go for roll-up shades that can be either translucent or opaque. Translucent ones allow some diffused light to come through, while opaque ones block light entirely. Different woven screen materials used in fabricating shades come in different colors and densities. These produce varying levels of visibility and light control.

Horizontal venetian blinds or miniblinds often provide a view. Moreover, these block direct sunlight while allowing diffused light to enter the space. Vertical blinds do the same, but these allow control of low-angle sunlight coming from east- and west-facing windows.

Select Your Windows Carefully

The number and the size of windows are factors in achieving a balance of light in a space. If the room only has a single window, there will be bright areas close to the unit and dark areas farther from it. Light gradation is enhanced if the room has dark furnishings and surfaces.

When home remodeling in St. Louis, MO, you can achieve balance by providing light at two directions. You can do this by putting up another window on a different wall. You may also consider having a skylight or a sky tunnel installed.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
