If you are expecting a child to come into your family, it’s time to set up a nursery! You and the baby will spend a lot of time in this room and you want everything to be just right. Before you think about colors and animal patterns, it’s important to stick to the basics within the space. What Las Vegas, NV replacement windows will work best, for example? If your windows are on the old side, it’s good to get them replaced so you have everything you need in place before the baby arrived. Here are a few suggestions on windows for a nursery.
Tip 1: Consider Vinyl
Vinyl windows are a great option for a nursery because they are low in maintenance. When you have a baby on the way, you have enough on your plate. The last thing you need is the chore of painting and scraping windows every year to add to your long to-do list. Vinyl windows are the perfect fit for a Las Vegas, NV nursery.
Tip 2: Go With Double-Hung
The baby might not be very mobile at first, but eventually, he will be…and that always means trouble. You want your child to remain as safe as possible around his windows and that’s why many parents go with double-hung windows in the bedrooms or any other windows on the second floor. Double-hung windows can be opened from the top while the bottom portion stays closed. You get the ventilation you want without allowing there to be a gap at the bottom large enough for anyone to tumble out.
Tip 3: Add Low-E Glass
You have to be careful about sunlight with newborns and even if you are covering the window with blinds, it’s good to have a low-e coating on the glass. This coating allows the UV rays to stay outside and not enter the nursery. That’s good for a number of reasons. First, it won’t harm your baby to lie in the sun within the room. Second, the furniture and flooring won’t fade. And third, the coating keeps the extra heat from those rays out of the space.
Tip 4: Insulate The Glass
Older windows with just one pane of glass offer hardly any barrier between the elements and a nursery. As long as you are getting new windows, you may as well go with double or even triple pane glass with argon or krypton fillings between the panes. The more you insulate the windows, the more comfortable the nursery will be for your child.
