Building a custom luxury home in Calgary is a dream come true, but there are a lot of details to consider, like the windows. The windows of your luxury custom home will help create the atmosphere you want while creating an eye-catching aesthetic that guests will love.
Unique Window Shapes for Your Luxury Custom Home
Unique window options are the perfect way to showcase your one-of-a-kind personality throughout your custom home. Opt for small hexagon windows to create more sunlight in small rooms. Circular windows are both modern and luxurious. Arch windows create a look of pure antique elegance that few other shapes can compete with.
Unique window shapes are ideal for creating a genuinely luxurious custom home. A Calgary luxury home builder can help you find the perfect unique window shapes to make your home one of a kind.
Dual Pane Vs. Triple Pane Windows
When considering windows for your luxury home, it’s essential to understand the difference between dual-pane and triple-pane windows.
Dual-pane windows consist of two panes of glass, providing an additional sound barrier and more insulation than single-pane windows.
Triple-pane windows are necessary for homes that want maximum energy efficiency. They consist of three glass panes, helping keep temperatures consistent in homes. These are ideal for homes in areas that experience extreme temperatures, especially north-facing facades.
When working with a Calgary luxury home builder, inquire about different types of windows. A custom home builder will have ample experience helping clients pick the perfect window to meet their needs.
Eco-Friendly Windows For A Luxury Home
Eco-friendly windows are an excellent option for a luxury custom home. These windows help lessen the carbon footprint you leave behind and are available with the same options as other windows. Homeowners can enjoy eco-friendly windows in various shapes, sizes, and colours and in either double or triple panes. The critical difference in eco-friendly windows is that they are made from sustainable materials. Examples of materials that are sustainable include:
When you choose eco-friendly windows, you’ll enjoy all the benefits you get with other windows, minus the environmental harm.
Always Consider Sizing For Your Custom Windows
Sizing is an essential element to consider. Large bay windows bring in a wealth of sunlight but can impact your home’s energy efficiency. Smaller windows are a great option, but they simply don’t provide the natural light like other windows.
When considering sizing, think about the design of the home. Traditionally, larger rooms should have more oversized windows. Smaller rooms do not need large windows, but they can feel small and cramped if they do not have enough natural light.
Natural light is crucial in homes that have a dark interior design theme. Black interiors are trending. However, combining a black interior with little natural light creates a cramped and depressing atmosphere. When choosing custom windows, you should always consider the atmosphere you want to create in a home.
During the design stages of your luxury custom home, Sunset Homes’ energy consultant will run a few models to ensure the insulation, wall details, HVAC options and other elements are sized correctly so the energy consumption stays at a minimum.
Windows Can Boost the Atmosphere in Your Luxury Custom Home
Before selecting windows for a luxury custom home, consider the atmosphere that you want in each room. Imagine the design that rooms will have.
For a cozy, inviting environment that makes guests feel welcome, opt for large windows that offer plenty of natural light. Opt for custom-shaped windows that go outside the norm to create a positive atmosphere that encourages more energy, including creative energy. Traditionally, oversized windows and glass doors appear more modern and luxurious than their smaller or wooden counterparts.
There are so many options available that it can be hard to choose the perfect windows for your custom luxury home. Thankfully, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
