Expert Tips on choosing the right windows when planning the layout for your new home

Enhancing Natural Light and Airflow

When it comes to your windows, the size and positioning play a crucial role. Before purchasing windows, it’s essential to consider the layout of your home. Will the placement of windows affect the amount of sunlight that streams into the rooms throughout the day? Maximising the entry of natural light is often a primary consideration because of the warm, expansive ambiance it creates and the connection it fosters with the outdoor surroundings. If you desire ample daylight throughout the day, it’s worth planning windows on different walls to accommodate the sun’s rotation. This approach not only enhances natural lighting but also reduces the reliance on artificial lighting, saving you money in the long run.

To help you assess the natural light and determine the specific amount and proportion of glazing required based on climate, thermal insulation, and your home’s layout, we provide a complimentary on-site consultation. We also take into account the airflow within your home, ensuring that you can open windows on hot summer days to facilitate air movement while preventing excessive drafts on windy days.

Practicality and Functionality

When contemplating new windows, it’s important to consider the function of each room in order to plan the placement accordingly. For instance, a kitchen necessitates maximum light, ventilation, and space, along with adequate storage and wall space for appliances. Typically, kitchens benefit from well-positioned opening windows that are easily accessible for quick ventilation. On the other hand, living rooms and dining areas often benefit from a greater number of larger windows and doors, creating an open and spacious environment. Depending on your room and specific requirements, various window options are available, including Bi-fold windows, Casement windows, and Sliding windows.
