When you are ready for replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV, you might mostly just replace the windows you have with a similar style and color as what you already had. You liked what you had, but the windows weren’t working very well any longer. New windows are going to make a world of difference. But there might be some good locations for sliding windows as well. Sliding windows are like double hung windows turned on their sides. They slide side to side, open and closed. You can open just one side or both. There are certain locations that often work well for sliding windows. Since they are wider than they are tall, they fit in better than other window styles in certain places. Here are a few places to consider adding them:
If you have a long hallway that really is quite dark, consider a sliding window on the wall that goes to the outside. The window can slide open and closed when you want to ventilate that stuffy hallway, but in the in between times, the window will act as a great avenue for natural lighting. Having natural light in the hall will help it to feel brighter and more welcoming and it also will cause you to use the overhead lights less during the day when the sun is out.
High On The Wall In Bathrooms
You want natural light in your bathroom, but you might feel like adding a window would be pointless. The bathroom is the space in your home where you need the most privacy. So, if you put a window in, you might feel like you just have to cover it up. So what would be the point of installing one? Well, if you get a sliding window and place it high on the wall, no one can see in and you’d get the lighting you want. Many people like to place the window high on the wall, above the tub. They can ventilate when they want and always enjoy the natural lighting during the day, but they don’t have to cover the window and worry about privacy issues.
Basements sometimes have walkouts, but even when they do, not all walls have the capabilities of full windows. In those cases, sliding windows can work well, again, high on the wall. You can slide the windows open and closed and get as much light into that sometimes-dark space as possible.
When you are getting replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV, it’s important to think about the things you might want to change in your home.
