3 Simple Tips to Make the Most of Your Sunny Windows

Here’s one easy way to spruce up your interior–increasing its access to natural light through your windows. This gives your home a neater and more spacious look, while also helping boost its overall feel. And while sunlit windows can improve a room’s aesthetics, they make an even bigger difference to its functionality and energy efficiency. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, the trusted residential windows company in the area, shares ways to get the most of your sunny windows. 


1. Set your work station near them. Natural light is tied to comfort and productivity. So if you’re one of the many people working from home these days, you should consider setting up your workspace near a sunny window. It allows you to be more active in the work you do, and if you need a breather, you can just turn to the window and take in the view. But if you’re worried about getting too much sun as you go about your tasks, no worries–if you have a Renewal by Andersen® window, it’s easy to protect yourself from excessive glare and heat.

The double-hung windows offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento come with advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. This lets considerable natural light to stream inside your home–minus the ultraviolet rays that cause sun damage and the infrared light that bring unwanted heat gain. Even if you set up your workspace near our windows, you can spend an inordinate amount of time there in relative comfort. 


2. Turn them into a cozy breakfast nook. Chugging coffee and munching on an egg sandwich by the kitchen counter? Not anymore. You can make early mornings more enjoyable just by turning the area in front of your sunlit windows into a breakfast nook. Just place a sturdy table and some comfortable chairs there and you’re all set. 


3. Don’t bother with window treatments during the day. Sunny windows allow for excellent daylighting, especially if you have a couple of picture windows installed. Because your home remains well-lit up until the evening, you can rely less on artificial lighting, which, in turn, means reduced electricity costs.
