About Me

The Perfect Basement Apartment

When we got married, my husband and I moved into a lovely brick home. Because we were young and in debt, we would have benefited from being able to rent out a portion of our home to tenants. Unfortunately, our home didn’t include a basement apartment. If your basement is currently not being used, consider transforming it into a basement apartment. Before renting it out to tenants, you will need to make sure it meets certain specifications. For example, most local governments require basement apartments to contain a certain amount of windows. Usually, you will also have to ensure that your windows meet size requirements. On this blog, you will discover how to create the perfect basement apartment with the right windows.

Achieve A Unique Look When Installing New Windows In Your Home

The windows on any home will have a major impact on the interior and exterior appearance. If your windows are old, you may be making plans to hire window professionals to replace them. But, you may want to avoid an identical replacement that has no change in looks. This means you will need to focus on details regarding window design to end up creating a unique appearance.

Frame Details

A huge area of customization is in the frame details. For instance, you can choose thick or thin window frame and get even more creative by adding an intricately carved design. If you are willing to spend extra money, you can change the size or shape of a window for a unique look.

For instance, you can add an arch to the top of the window. This will increase the natural light that gets into the space as well as give you an extra opportunity to make an amazing design.

Color Choice

Another aspect in which you can control is the color of the window frames. Instead of going for the standard white, which works well with most homes, you may want a bold color. You can mix things up by using the window frames for bold coloring and then combine it with white siding.

When you are going through the color options, you may want to think about dirtiness. If you are not cleaning the exterior of the windows every day, dirt buildup will happen. So, you will benefit from colors in which dirt does not show up easily to make your home look cleaner all the time.

Grid Design

To take advantage of another customization option with your windows, you may want to consider adding a grid design. The grids introduce even more color to your home. You will also have flexibility in deciding which kind of grid design you would like your property to have.

Some people may like Colonial style, which creates square or rectangle glass panes. Another option is diamond, which means you will have diamond-shaped glass panes on your windows.

One thing you will want to think about is how much light you want in an area. Since the grid does reduce the sunlight that gets inside, you may want to skip this design feature for some rooms.

Whether you know exactly what you want in new windows or you have questions before deciding, contacting window professionals is a great way to get started on the project. Contact a company like Bradenton Window & Allied Products for more information and assistance.
