Use Stained Glass Windows to Decorate Your Home

My name is Linda, and I am a professional interior decorator with additional experience in construction. I am passionate about the beauty of stained glass and its ability to completely transform a room or an entire home. Consider turning one or more of your windows into a work of art by replacing it with a stained glass design. If you don't want to completely replace a window, you can order a customized stained glass window and have it hung in front of your existing window. This creates a lovely focal piece in your home. Decorating with stained glass is easy and can make a huge difference in your home's appearance.

Need New Windows? 3 Features To Look Out For

Are your home's windows in need of replacement due to their old age? Chances are that you'll be amazed by some of the features of new windows since it has been so long since you last shopped around. Here are some interesting features to keep an eye out for.

Privacy Glass

Are you the type of person that enjoys having a large window that is open and without any window coverings? If so, you can use privacy glass to give the window the look you want with the privacy you would otherwise lose.

Privacy glass is made with an electrostatic film that is activated digitally. There is a transponder that receives a signal from a remote or smartphone and can change the opacity of glass instantly. The class can either be completely transparent or prevent others from looking in by being completely opaque.

Digital Lock Controls

Many homeowners focus on their deadbolts when it comes to improving home security, but the chances are high that a burglar will try to break in through an open window rather than your front door.

You can purchase windows these days that have digital lock controls. They will help alert you to open windows, even when you are not home, thanks to sensors that transmit the information wirelessly to your smartphone. You can even get sensors that tell you if a window is locked or unlocked. It makes it easy to ensure that your windows are secure when you are out of the home or on vacation, giving you some peace of mind

Child Safety Features

You may be concerned about your children opening windows more than you are comfortable with, but still, want to get a cool breeze in your home. Modern windows now have child safety features, which are as simple as a stopper that pops out of the window frame and prevents the window from opening past a specific point. It will ensure that the window is not big enough for a child to fit through, which will keep them safe even if you have the windows open.

These are just a few new features to look for in brand new windows. If you want to know what else you can get to add to your new windows, reach out to a local window replacement contractor. They can provide you with a consultation, helping you with selection and pricing.
