You don’t have to completely renovate your home just to make your rooms look larger. With a simple window upgrade, you can create the illusion of a bigger room. Here are some design tips from Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico:
Let In More Natural Light
Daylighting has positive effects on our health and productivity. In fact, several studies have indicated that employees worked better and patients recovered faster when inside daylit rooms. Daylight can also brighten moods as well as living spaces.
Natural light opens up your living or dining rooms, making them appear larger than they are. Using large windows in Albuquerque, NM, can also connect rooms to the outdoors. This way, the room will look like it extends to the outside instead of being limited in the four walls.
You can use floor-to-ceiling picture windows to frame panoramic outdoor views. You can also use sliding windows for both ventilation and views. If you have casement or double-hung, you can have specialty windows installed on top of them to let in more light.
Use Lighter or Neutral-Colored Trim
A cool color template can cause your walls to recede visually, causing existing space to expand. At Renewal by Andersen, you can choose your own trim finish for your window replacement in Albuquerque, NM. We offer interior and exterior colors in white, canvas, and Terratone®. We also offer pine, oak, maple finishes for the inside of your window.
Invest in Bay or Bow Window
Bay and bow windows are window styles that project from your walls, creating a space in the room. You can use this added space as storage or create a seating nook. You can also create a seating area and use the space underneath the bench as storage.
With these tips, you can create larger spaces without costing too much. Renewal by Andersen is a window contractor in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who offers different styles that fit your home’s needs. They come with reliable materials that will improve your home’s energy efficiency and protection.
