I am redoing my kitchen and one thing I want to do is expand the window that is currently over my sink.
I want to have wall to wall sliding glass windows.
I need to contact a contractor to extend the window, a window installation company, and I also need sun control window film installation. The area I am having windows put in face where the sun hits most of the day. The reason I want the windows there is to let in light. My house is so dark and I think it would be beautiful to have big windows that can open to let in a fresh breeze. I am aware that adding more windows and allowing sunshine is not very energy smart. Online highly recommended looking into sun control window film installation. It is a thin laminate that can be added to the interior or exterior of the window to stop the heat from the sunshine from coming into the house. So I can get the benefits of having a brightly lit room, but not making my cooling system work double time to accommodate it. There are even decorative window films that have cute little patterns on them. I have loosely thought about a pattern that would go with my penny tile backsplash in the kitchen. At the end of the day, I think I might stick with a basic film that you won’t notice. I want a more modern look. It will never go out of style and I don’t want to draw attention to the fact that I have treated windows.
