Importance of Windows for your New Custom Home

Windows play a significant role in your home, they are part of the overall design of your home, impact your budget, and help set your home’s style as well. On the pre-construction and design phases, you will have the chance to explain to your home builder and design team the vision you have for your home. Your window selection will allow you to have natural light, enjoy your home's view, and also can create a sense of openness in your home, as they contribute to the open concept style.

Window Styles for your Calgary Infill Homes

There are many window styles you could add to your new custom home design. Double-hung windows are the most common option, and they tend to be an affordable option. Bay windows are a great option to let in a lot of natural light to your custom kitchen. Skylights are another excellent possibility for kitchens and attics. Awning windows provide additional airflow to any room while casement windows offer maximum energy efficiency. Horizontal sliding windows are a good option for places like your kitchen as they open on one side for ventilation. Nonetheless, one of the most energy-efficient choices are picture windows that can be installed in almost every room in your home as they come in many different sizes,  provide an open view, and create that sense of openness to your home.
