The bedroom is that one space where you can take your shoes off and just sit back and relax after a long day. But to spruce up the space and make it even more comfortable, having the right kind of windows is absolutely essential. Here are some things to consider.
Building codes: There are local building codes in place that require your new windows to be of a specific height and size. Make sure to comply with these requirements because they help ensure you and your family’s personal safety. A bedroom window should be a certain height and size so you can use them to exit your home easily and safely in case of emergencies. Casement or sliding horizontal windows are great options for meeting these codes.
Natural ventilation: You want to wake up to a lovely view every morning or watch the starry sky before falling asleep at night. So, choosing picture windows for your bedroom makes perfect sense, right? Not exactly – since you’ll be sleeping in this room, it’s better to pick operable windows like casement or sliding replacement windows. They can give your room better access to natural ventilation, allowing for improved indoor air quality. This beats breathing the conditioned air from your cooling system, and, by reducing your reliance on it, you can enjoy lower energy costs.
But if you already have your heart set on picture windows, there’s a way to still incorporate them into your bedroom. You can, for example, have two operable windows like casements flank a center picture window. This way, you can still get that expanded viewing area without compromising natural ventilation.
Window treatments: They are important for ensuring privacy, controlling the amount of light that streams into your bedroom and maintaining a consistent temperature in the space. For this reason, make sure to choose a window treatment that fits your needs perfectly. It comes in many types, such as curtains, blinds and shades.
