Sunlight is a requirement for life. So why wouldn’t you let as much light into your home as possible? Big beautiful windows brighten a home and have the added benefit of offering nearly unobstructed views. Below are three examples of homes that use windows to brighten and enliven their main living area.
Windows and doors become one at this Splendid Lakefront home. During the colder months the glass doors are shut- letting in only the breathtaking view. When the weather warms, the doors can be opened to create a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors. Smaller windows above the doors continue the home’s contemporary design and warm woodwork.
A high ceiling combined with double story windows flood this Sandwith Estate home with light. Large windows such as these offer amazing views even from the second story balcony. Combine these windows with soft cream colors and you have a relaxing and elegant space to wow your guests.
If two whole stories of windows is not enough light for you, then a skylight can always be added. This Villa home is awash with light thanks to its many windows and peak roof skylight. Dark wood trim contrasts the light cascading through the windows to create a more dramatic feel.
