ON WINDOW CHOICES AND NATURAL LIGHT

Any home filled with natural light instantly becomes warm, cheery, and inviting. Properties with abundant daylight not only keep us physically and emotionally healthy, but windows installation is also a vital element of green design. The more daylight you let into your home, the fewer lights you have to turn on and the less electricity you consume.

Window Choices Natural Light

There is, however, another crucial aspect of light that homeowners sometimes overlook: its ability to change the mood of any room. When picking a window style for your home improvement project, consider the overall atmosphere you want. Different windows let in different kinds of light, altering the room’s ambiance.

Rather than just cramming in as many windows as possible, you can control a room’s environment with the proper window placement, orientation, and design style.

Orientation Matters

Whether designing or renovating, consider your window placement in relation to the geographic location of your home and the movement of the sun. Furthermore, climate and seasonal cycles affect heat and cold gains, adding to the ability of your energy efficient windows to maximize temperature changes.

Windows Complement a Room

Choose window styles that highlight a room’s best features. Rooms with high ceilings or spaces usually benefit from a clearstory window or multistory windows found in atriums or multistory foyers. Rooms with lower ceilings, meanwhile, can benefit from sunlight by having windows with a lower sill height to the floor.

Go Big or Go Home

There is nothing quite like waking up to a picturesque view outside your home with floor-to-ceiling windows. They have the ability to set the overall tone of any room, from cozy and warm to invigorating and exciting. While large blocks of glass can be tricky to accommodate, if done right, they can bring a whole room to life. After all, windows are more than just openings to your home; they help capture the outdoors and bring them into your home.

For sure, there are no specific rules for choosing window styles, designs, and placements in your Missouri home, especially in St. Charles, MO. So take a risk and let your creative juices flow. Even classic ones like casement windows, when positioned at an angle, can add texture to a room and make it pop.

"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!!"
