Design a ‘New’ Look for Your Home with Replacement Windows June 5, 2017 You’ve been living in this house for quite some time. You may have grown a bit too accustomed to the furniture, the color of each room, the carpeting, the lighting, and much more. You want a change, but you don’t know where to start. Why not consider replacement windows? But aren’t replacement windows expensive? A lot of people assume that replacement windows are far more costly than they realize. In reality, the average house in the Greater Toronto Area can enjoy all new replacement windows for anywhere between $5,000 and $10,000, depending on the type of window, the size, and whether or not they are increasing or decreasing the size of their windows which will require more construction work. This might seem expensive for some, but when you consider the increased home value they can offer and the fact it is, dollar for dollar, the best home improvement project to take on with regard to cost and new assessed value, it’s a great option to consider. Most importantly, if you completely change the style and size of windows in certain or all rooms in your house, you can have what feels like a completely different home environment. For example, you might have a couple of basic double hung windows in the family room. Perhaps that family room looks out on the rest of your property. Most of the time the blinds and curtains are closed because the windows are just so old and don’t really do anything to enhance the appearance. What if you completely take those out, expand the size of the windows, and install a gorgeous oversized bay or bow window? More lighting will mean greater options for furniture, arrangements, and much more. Before you realize it, you have what feels like a different home environment and that can inspire even greater changes to help you feel more refreshed and invigorated every time you go home.
