We’re fitting panoramic windows, where should they go?

When you’re extending your home, or going through a major renovation, there are hundreds of decisions to make along the way; and one of the most important considerations is where to fit windows and the benefit they’re likely to bring once the build is over.

Because panoramic windows offer the homeowner a much greater opportunity to frame a view or to create compelling sightlines, the decision over where to place them becomes even more important.

So, what sort of things do you need to consider if thinking about installing panoramic windows?

Beyond a view?

When it comes to positioning your panoramic windows, you’ll want to ensure they look out across a good view can; but beyond that, what can very large windows do for you home?

Fitting panoramic windows in a kitchen can be a great option. The room can be filled with glorious natural light and views of the garden. But what about using the windows to breathe new life into a bit of previously unloved space? If you have an underused room, could a large window make it a more desirable place in which to spend time?

Something as simple as fitting a window could end up extending your living space by a whole room!

Framing the imperfect

We’ve run through a handful of ways a room might benefit from panoramic windows, but it’s also important to think about things that might dissuade you from placing a window in a certain place.

If, for example, your living space needs extra light, but fitting a panoramic window would also create a glorious view of your neighbour’s parked cars or bin tidy, is that really going to make your home feel more special?

We also suggested that you might be able to bring much needed life to a room with a big window; but you have to weigh-up whether the space will remain rarely used and if the effort not be better spent fitting the window in a part of the home where its benefit will be felt more readily? It’s a balancing act.

Finding the perfect position for a panoramic might seem a little tricky, but when you find the right place, this new piece of glazing will fill the house with light, views, and bring something just a little bit special to your home.
