4 Ways to Enjoy Home Living More with New Replacement Windows November 9, 2015 Raise & Lower Operator When you first purchased your Toronto area home and moved in, it was probably an exciting time. You and everyone else in the family were exploring every room, arranging the interior decor to your liking, and just getting a feel for what this home had to offer. It was a great time of excitement, but as the years have marched on you don’t have the same affinity for your house as you once did. This is natural. Most people have a tendency to become complacent and get overly comfortable or used to the furniture, the layout, and everything else. If you’re looking for ways to improve your enjoyment and comfort at home, you might be considering new furniture, new carpeting, new curtains or blinds, maybe even wood shutters, or some other major home improvement project. Before you set out to spend tens of thousands of dollars, consider the reasons why new replacement windows can actually change the entire appearance and feel of your house. 1. Opening those window blinds. If you have old, ratty, dirty windows you probably have a tendency to keep the curtains or blinds closed. When you have brand-new windows you want to expose them to the entire house. This will allow more sunlight into your home and that will inspire more comfort. 2. Less heat. With low-e film coating, you can cut back on the sun’s ultraviolet radiation that gets into the home which is responsible for generating heat. This can be a great way to provide comfort during those summer months. You can still sit in your favorite recliner with the sun bathing over you without getting overheated. 3. Be inspired to consider interior wood shutters. When you have brand-new windows you probably want to get new window treatments. Adding wood shutters as opposed to blinds, curtains, or some other drapery, is a great way to make you feel as though you’ve moved into a new house. 4. Opening those windows. When you have brand-new replacement windows that function the way they were designed and don’t stick every time you try to open them, you will be inspired to open them, allowing more fresh air into your home and that will make you feel much more comfortable sitting in your house.
