If a person’s eyes are the window to their souls, windows in a home give expression to the character and soul of that home. Windows can be simple and utilitarian, they can focus attention on a special view, or they can dominate a wall. When I say window I mean windows, doors, transoms, and walls of windows. I live in an old home which has very regular simple windows. I love them. In my living room we have 12 over 12 windows from the 1800’s. In our bedroom dormers we have 6 over 6 windows.
Special windows in a home give it character(as do many features in a home). The most important elements a great window or door combination give a home is light and views, not to mention air. A creative window or door combination is adamantly more expensive than a simple window, but in the right circumstances it is well worth the money.
