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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
