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.

If you are looking to achieve balanced lighting, it pays to use windows that are both attractive and energy-efficient. At Renewal by Andersen ® of St. Louis, we offer exactly those and more.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
