Thinking about adding a big touch to your home? Creating something truly breathtaking and sure to be noticed? You might consider a window wall. A window wall is an exterior curtain wall (non-load bearing wall) created using a panel of windows. The windows can be fixed or operable. Glass glazing may be clear, tinted, or opaque. Sometimes glass doors at the base of the wall are incorporated as well.
What can a window wall do for your home? A window wall is sure to add value to your home due to both the aesthetics of the wall itself and the inviting natural light that will be added to the inside of your home. Have a prize backyard with gorgeous landscaping? Why not add a window wall overlooking the yard so you can enjoy the lush plants and flowers from the comfort of your inside home year round. Modern architecture values fluid, open spaces in design and having a fluidity between the inside and outside of your home will be sure to make your home stand out.
Won’t the energy costs be astronomical? Well, with today’s modern technology, windows are no longer the energy sinks they used to be. In fact, a window wall can be created using large expanses of glass with virtually no loss of energy efficiency.
Where are window walls added? The usual first choice room to add a window wall is a family room. Enjoy beauty and ambiance of natural light in the comfort of your family’s main gathering space. Or add a window wall to a dining space to instantly upgrade the room to a more elegant space. Have a completely private backyard? Some homeowners have chosen to add a window wall to the bath area. Having the open light and space in your bath next to the soaker tub gives a luxurious spa feel.
