The overall looks of your home can reflect what kind of person you are. Whether it is the yard, the wall painting, the shape design of the home, window, as well as the additional ornament are the representation of who you are.
Specifically, the window is often being neglected by people who do not really concern about the home details. However, the window can be functioned more than a ventilation. The window is also part of exterior decoration from your home that reflects the style of the home as well as your taste. As the accent and the ventilation for your home, these guides below can be helpful of you are going to change your current window or make a new home.
Matching the window design with your home design
The design of the window includes the color, shape, as well as the material and the details. The modern home will be easier to find its matching new window because it fits best with a simple window. If you have a certain theme for your home, for example, the tropical home, a big window with wooden frame can express that your home becomes one with nature. The color of the frame also needs to be in the same gradient with the wall tone and this rule is applicable for any home theme.
There are also several types of window operation system. There are sliding window, double hung, awning window, etc. The different operation system can reflect the different theme. For instance, the sliding window is identical with Japanese style home or East Asian home-like.
Determine what kind of function it should have
Before you attach your new window, decide where you will attach them. If you are going to attach to the bedroom or living room wall, then the window should be big enough to let the air enters. Meanwhile, if you just need to give an accent in your kitchen or the bathroom, small window in a round or oval shape should be matched.
The dark space like the storeroom also needs more than one window or a big window to let the air circulates well. It is good to prevent the mildew and the germs grow. Furthermore, if you are going to use the window to see the outside view, a very big window should be perfect. Super huge window that faces the yard and placed in the balcony can be a beautiful decoration as well as the perfect source of light.
Before placing the window, consider the where the direction of the sun. Place the window where you can get the morning light. I recommend you to consult with your architect before placing the window to make sure you do not get unnecessary day sun exposure and get proper light at night. It is very uncomfortable when your room gets too hot because of the day sun and very dark at night.
Do not consider window as the mere ventilation. The window can be the center of interest if you can choose the unique design and match it with your home style.
