It’s not just “volume rooms” that make a space seem larger, brighter, and dramatic. There is something to be said for large windows when it comes to aesthetics, ambiance, and functionality. House designers are embracing large windows for that extra attention on light. Just visualize an open floor home with wall-to-wall glass windows and that perfect warm glow of sunshine streaming in. Called “daylighting,” the design concept uses architectural elements – such as large windows and skylights – to allow natural light into living spaces.
Even if not primarily facing south, when the large windows are arranged strategically in the open floor areas, they can provide light to the entire space. What a great way to connect with the natural surroundings and add more natural light to the home.
