If you’ve needed replacement windows in Riverside, CA for quite some time, you’re likely looking forward to the project. Maybe you’ve thought about the window style, frame material, and color quite a bit. When you start to look into details, you find there are a lot of different things you can do with the project. If you have some budget left over beyond what you thought you’d need, perhaps you’d like to do a few unique things while you get the windows your home deserves—to make it stand out that much more. Here are a few ideas that might strike your fancy.
Trade Out A Window Bank For A Bay Or Bow Window
A bank of casement or double hung windows in your front room are going to bring in a lot of light, but a bay or bow window will bring in more and give you a larger view since you can see out the sides as well. These windows jut out of your house so they take a little construction and more from the budget, but they add actual square footage to your home and architectural interest inside and out. They are a lovely addition to most homes and make a great reading nook.
Add A Shaped Window Above A Door
Your entry door might seem normal, but you could add a new level of interest there as well with a geometric window above it. Consider a circle, octagon, or even a rectangle on its side long ways. Putting a window above the door will bring in light to the entryway without taking away any privacy.
Upgrade With Abandon
While standard windows are great in quality and better than the windows you have now, there are ways to make them even better with upgrades. Consider low-E glass, triple panes, inert gas fillings, and other upgrades you see fitting for your home and budget. These upgrades will make your energy bills go lower and your comfort higher.
Put In A Skylight
There might be some areas of the home where you aren’t comfortable adding a window, like the bathroom. You might not have space for a window in other areas, like the kitchen. But you can still get more natural light, if you’d like, through adding a skylight. You can enjoy the lighting without taking up any wall space or taking away any privacy.
These are a few unique ideas that can make your replacement windows in Riverside, CA all that much more special. Since you don’t take a project like this on very often (most homeowners only have to do it once) you want to get just what you’d like to have from the project. That might mean switching out old windows for new models that are similar or it might mean making changes.
