The best windows for a house or apartment should not only be functional, but also match the style of the facade and interior design. It is important to remember that it is the joinery that gives character to the facade of the building and is an integral part of the interior design.
The decision to purchase window frames is often driven by one of two reasons: installation in a new building or replacement of existing window frames. While in the planning phase of new buildings we have complete freedom in choosing the shape, size or position of the windows in relation to solar radiation, when renovating a building we have to make certain compromises in the choice of window frames. Thanks to our guide, you can choose the best windows, which will also perfectly fit into the interior.
Custom windows and natural light
Natural sunlight has a major impact on our well-being. It releases endorphins, i.e. happiness hormones, in the body and normalizes the circadian rhythm. Sufficient solar radiation indoors reduces heating and electricity bills significantly, even in winter.
Depending on the type of room, the amount of light can be more or less important. When designing a new house, it’s a good idea to place the building and windows relative to the sides of the world, so the living room, kitchen, and children’s rooms are on the south, southwest. We spend most of the day in these spaces, so naturally we want to keep the sunlight there for as long as possible.
Instead, the optimal location for bedrooms would be rooms on the north or north-east side of the house. This spot offers relaxing afternoon shade and keeps the weather cooler. If you want to learn more about the correct placement of PVC windows in your home, read our latest blog post.
Energy efficiency and savings on bills
Heat losses in the house are usually greater through glass surfaces than through walls. In order to maintain optimal room temperatures and improve the energy balance of the building, it is worth investing in windows that are as energy-efficient as possible, i.e. those with the lowest possible U-value.
They reduce the energy required to heat the premises, which has a positive effect on the environment and the state of our wallets, especially now that gas and electricity prices are also increasing.
Several factors influence the good thermal insulation performance of the window. One of these is the packaging of the glass, which is the number and type of glass used. Today, double or triple glazing with argon gas between the panes is increasingly used, as is the case with Veneo PVC windows.
It is also important that the windows have a thermal spacer. The thickness and quality of the window profile, the seals – the best energy-saving windows usually have additional seals – and the hardware used also affect the thermal insulation of the window.
Choose windows that best suit the character of the building
Exterior carpentry can perfectly emphasize the style of the house or, on the contrary, give the building a completely new character, make it more diverse and original. The desired effect can be achieved by using a specific material or color from the wide palette. An interesting solution can be the choice of a large glazed unit, non-traditional shapes or accessories such as moldings.
The combination of windows with other facade elements such as doors, balconies or a roof is a proven recipe for a complete facade look.
PVC products are leaders in the exterior carpentry market. The combination of very good thermal insulation parameters and an affordable price makes most customers choose the best joinery from this material.
Why is it advisable to choose made-to-measure windows instead of opting for prefabricated products such as those available from Leroy Merlin or Brico Dépôt?
The advantage of custom windows is that they are designed and manufactured exactly to the customer’s specifications. In this way, all dimensions as well as the glass thickness or type of glass can be adapted to individual needs.
Therefore, if you are looking for a tailor-made product that perfectly suits your home, visit the Veneo PVC window, door and blinds configurator, where you can choose one of the elements that suit your window, the material, the type of Profils and choose glass, choose the color and add the blind.
