The Benefits of Adding Windows
If you were to pass two different homes – one with windows and one without, which home would draw your eyes more? There’s no wrong answer here, but it is interesting which direction your brain goes. The team at Valley Windows is passionate about providing you with a better view and we do that through next-level windows and doors. But windows aren’t a one-size-fits-all element of your home. They should cater to your personal style and the needs of your household.
Some of us know our needs in and out of the home right off the bat. We know when we like something when we don’t, when we need something and when we don’t. That’s a skill, but not one that is everyone is blessed to have. In fact, the vast majority of us become overwhelmed when served with big decisions to make, especially related to your home. That’s normal and that’s why you have partners-in-crime like us! We love to provide objective, entertaining and engaging information about the home industry here on the Valley Windows blog, hopefully inspiring you to get excited about your current home or a home in your future.
Back to our original question. What’s interesting here and what we want to focus on today, is the surprising list of benefits that maximizing the number of windows at your home can have. Some are really obvious – first and foremost, windows provide curb appeal. Curb appeal is that immediate positive reaction that your brain has to a beautiful home, simply based on the first impression. Curb appeal is absolutely paramount if you are looking to put your home on the market and sell it. Even if you’re not, curb appeal has a psychological property to not only make you proud of your home but also invite visitors in.
Windows, especially large ones, are obviously going to let in a lot of light. The important thing here is to be strategic about the direction that your windows face so that you don’t let in excess sunlight during less optimal times of the day. Depending on where you live, light can again have a huge and positive psychological impact. It lifts your mood, maximizes creativity and – when added to your bedroom – gives you that extra incentive to get out of bed and seize the day. There is definitely a school of thought that is opposed to windows in rooms like bedrooms, allowing you instead to extend your hours of sleep, and that’s completely a personal decision. The wonderful thing about working with a company like Valley Windows is that we don’t believe that products should simply be off-the-shelf solutions – instead, we’re here to help you customize what makes the most sense for you.
Finally, we’re betting that when you chose your home, there’s at least one exterior view that you’re looking to capitalize on and enjoy. Well-chosen windows are the best way to make this happen.
