How to Add Charm with Windows (Inside and Out)

0

You can add charm with windows, both inside and out of your home. Your windows allow you to connect with the world outside your walls. Perhaps you have views of sweeping mountains or the city. Or, maybe you’re lucky enough to have sea views. Whatever lies outside, windows connect you with the outdoors.

From the exterior of your home, windows add curb appeal. Because they are a prominent feature, choose windows that complement your home’s style. If you have a Colonial home, select multi-paned, traditional window. However, a modern home calls for the clean lines of picture windows.

Wrap-up:

I recently asked for window advice from my friend Dan, the owner of Zen Windows. He told me that, “Windows are almost the only feature of your home that add both strength and beauty.” The bottom line? When you make this important investment, be sure to add charm with windows.
