There are so many features you can have implemented into your home design when remodeling or starting from scratch. From porches to skylights to so much more, the possibilities are only limited by imagination. However, there’s one particular feature we think deserves some extra consideration. Here are 4 reasons you should consider floor-to-ceiling windows in your home.
1. Save Money on Electricity
The first thing floor-to-ceiling windows are good for is saving money on electricity. How is that the case? Just take a look at how many lights you have on in your home right now. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in so much sunlight that you can actually save money. Keeping your electric lights off in favor of lighting up your space with natural sunlight can help you save significantly. Even one of these windows can be enough to light up the entire living room from sunup to sundown.
2. Make Your Space Feel Bigger
Saving money is one thing, but for some people it’s no burden to shoulder the cost of their indoor lighting. However, even those people can benefit from adding extra space to their home. And that’s exactly what adding floor-to-ceiling windows can do. Turning a large portion of the wall into glass makes the expanse of the outdoors feel like it’s part of your home.
The claustrophobic feeling of solid walls can’t contain you anymore. With floor-to-ceiling windows, it will suddenly feel like you have room to breathe again. Even small homes can benefit from that optical life-hack.
3. Improve Your View
Fine with your electric bill and plenty of space to spare? Don’t fret; there’s a benefit for you as well! Floor-to-ceiling windows will open up your home to beautiful new views. Let the beauty of the outdoors become part of your interior. Do you really want to spend your days looking at paint or wallpaper? Give yourself something that makes your home feel more beautiful.
Whether you have mountains outside your home, forests, or even just a suburban garden, you’ve got a view. Don’t let the beauty of the outdoors be wasted where you can’t see it. It’s yours to enjoy and you should make the most of it, even when you don’t want to leave the house.
4. Raise the Value of Your Home
If all else fails, or even if everything else applies, adding floor-to-ceiling windows will increase the value of your home. Even if you plan to stay there for many years yet, the eventual sale of your home is likely. Floor-to-ceiling windows will guarantee you make more money than you would have otherwise.
Why do these windows affect your home’s sale price so much? Because people find value in the previously mentioned points – especially the view. Having a good view from your home is a huge money-maker when it comes to resale value. This boost to your home’s value is only helped by adding big windows to make access to that view even easier.
