If you plan on replacing the windows in your home, there are other improvements that you may want to consider doing. This can include adding shutters, changing window sizes or even installing garden windows. Doing these improvements can help you get more out of your investment in new windows. Here are some of the features you may want to consider for your window replacement project: 

1. Adding Shutters And Other Window Treatments

Shutters can be a great addition to windows. They can help give your home more energy efficiency, as well as protect your home from storm damage. There are also many options to add automation to your home with window treatments. This can be done with the shutters you have installed, or with blinds, curtains and other features you add to your windows. You can even choose from blinds that can be adjusted to allow different amounts of light through them. This can also be done with special glass, but the glass can be costly to have installed.

2. Giving Your Home More Natural Light With Larger Windows

When replacing windows in your home, you may want to consider adding larger windows. This can be good for areas of your home that get little natural light. Installing large windows can be a good option for windows that are too small. You may want to consider opening up space with double windows to replace the small single windows.  It can be a good addition to a living room, kitchen or other open space in your home.

3. Green Space And Light With The Addition Of Garden Windows

You may also want to add green space to your home. Garden windows can be a great addition to your home. These are windows that extend out from your home to create a miniature greenhouse-type area. If you have a kitchen that needs more light, this can be a great way to get more natural light in the kitchen. It can also be good for a small herb garden and plants inside your home. It does not have to be limited to the kitchen; garden windows can also be good for other areas of your home where you want to have more light or a small indoor garden area.

These are some of the features you may want to consider adding to your replacement windows. If you are ready to improve your home with new features and windows, contact a replacement window contractor (such as Zephyr Aluminum Renewal by Andersen) and talk with them about using some of these ideas.
