Windows do a lot. They protect and insulate your home. They allow for natural air flow and ventilation. The also let in natural light, which is more important than you think. Natural light has so many benefits. It improves circadian rhythms, reduces stress, increases focus, and helps make a home more open and inviting. If you are not getting enough natural light in your home it can really impact your health and wellbeing. Maybe you have the wrong windows. Instead of living in the dark, consider these replacement windows in Encinitas, CA:
1. Floor to Ceiling Windows
Looking to make a bold statement and get ample natural light in your living space? Floor to ceiling windows will have dramatic effect. These stunning installations will become the focal point of any room. And it will be even better if you have an amazing view of the backyard.
2. Bank of Windows
Have a long, empty hallway that bumps up against an exterior wall? If so, you can line windows down the hall and really light up what is usually a very dark area of the home. You can choose smaller operable windows, or simply do a row of picture windows if you are looking exclusively for light.
Want ample light while still maintaining your privacy? Skylights are a great solution. They can shine down on your bathroom or bedroom, but keep people from seeing inside your home.
4. Bay and Bow Windows
These larger window installations project outside and let light in from different angles. They also add some extra square footage to your room if you want added seating or storage.
5. Clerestory Windows
Clerestory windows are high up on the wall, above eye level. Some homeowners use them in the basement to add light and ventilation. But you can also install these unique windows anywhere in your home. Some people install them in the kitchen above cabinets or in bathrooms above the shower. They are a great source of natural light and ventilation in areas of high humidity.
6. Sidelights and Transom Windows
Have a dark entryway that feels more like a cave? Adding sidelights that flank the front door and a transom window above it can give your guests a bright, warm welcome. These installations also go a long way toward boosting your curb appeal and the value of your home.
