Your home's windows provide a special function in your home. Not only do they give you a way to ventilate your home and air out the inside air, but they also provide a key connection to the world outside. A good window will provide a much-needed dose of sunlight while offering an important connection to nature throughout all four seasons of the year. At The Construction Group just outside of St. Paul, we know how important your home’s windows are. This guide will walk you through how you can use windows in your home to bring the outside world into your home.
1. Garden Windows
One of the loveliest touches for bringing the outdoors into your home is by installing a garden window. A garden window includes a ledge for plants or other items and projects out just enough to add additional light in your kitchen or other space. By filling this nook up with indoor plants, you can liven up any indoor space during all four seasons. Fill your garden window with lovely herbs for garden-fresh cuisine all year long.
2. Bay or Bow Windows
A bay window or a bow window is a type of window that extends out beyond the exterior wall of your home. A bay window is an angled window consisting of three panes. A bow window is similar to a bay window, but with four or five panes. This creates a curved rather than angled look and can be placed on the corner of a home or on one side. Bay and bow windows can create the sense of a connection with nature.
3. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are similar to traditional single-hung windows, but both panels of glass can slide open. This allows for increased ventilation. With double-hung windows, you can freshen up the air in your home by letting the cool breeze into your home. Double-hung windows are also easy to clean and maintain.
