According to window replacement companies, picking a new window isn’t something that you can just “do”. In fact, there are few factors that you need to keep in mind when choosing a new window. One of the most important of these factors is size, and, unfortunately, picking a window size isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Keep the sills in mind when choosing the size of your new windows. This is because experts recommend that you ensure that the sills are low enough for you to still see through even if you’re seated.
If you opt for a window that will come close to your floor, make sure that your new window will have tempered or safety glass installed in them.
If your home has high ceilings, choose a window that’s tall enough to make your windows look uniform and proportionate to your home. Apart from that, make sure to leave enough space above your replacement windows for curtain rods and other treatments as well if you ever want to spruce up your windows.
Other Home Elements
The sills of your windows and the ceiling of your home are good things to keep in mind when picking an appropriately sized window for your home, but be sure to look at the other interior and exterior elements of your house as well. That way, you can ensure the new window’s length and width are proportionate to these additional elements as well.
