Replacement windows are one of the most common ideas for adding more natural light. Getting a better window type can improve ventilation and illumination, after all. However, there are other ways you can add to the brightness. Here are some methods and window types to try:
Many patio doors have large glass areas, ideal for a good view outside. However, like a sliding glass panel, it also brings in light. Without grilles to block off certain areas, a sliding patio door can be a gateway for the sunlight. You have to find energy-efficient glass to deal with the added heat. Other than that, it can be a cost-effective way to make your room brighten up.
Picture windows are one of the most effective options for illumination. Unlike double hung windows, they are not operable. However, this is not a problem if paired with other windows. If ventilation is not a concern, then the picture window can be a great glass eye for your home. It can show you the outdoors while inviting sunlight into your rooms.
Sometimes the aesthetics of your windows can cause you problems. While some homeowners enjoy curtains, they also have less light going inside because of the shade they provide. By simply removing the curtains, you can bring in more light instantly. You can also make your windows texture reflect light to keep the room’s privacy.
Transoms are horizontal vinyl windows that line the top of other windows or doors. Because they are an extension of your window or door, transoms can easily bring in more illumination. They can do so while adding design to your home.
