For some, floor to ceiling windows are an extravagant piece of luxury that seems only fit for mansions or movie set pieces. The reality is, many homeowners have started to take advantage of floor to ceiling windows if they have a great view. If you want to look out at your property, a floor to ceiling window may be the best option for the right space in your custom home. The custom home building process is meant to allow you to express yourself through your home’s design, so take the opportunity to think about every detail–including windows–and decide what’s best for you.
The biggest advantage to floor to ceiling windows are their aesthetic appeals. Private areas or those rooms with great views benefit from floor to ceiling windows, as they provide excellent design benefits. The room will feel larger, much brighter, and can really open up a smaller room with too many darker elements when you utilize large windows like these. It’s really a unique way to set your home apart from the pack and make it truly custom.
Cons to Consider
If you live in a crowded area, floor to windows may not be great as they put everything on display. You may not want what you’re doing in your living room to be revealed to all of your neighbors. They’re also prone to heating up the room very quickly, thanks to all the sunlight they let in. This is why you might need to invest in solar curtains. Ideally, your solar curtains will come down automatically at the flick of a switch, which can be a cool trick for guests and show how amazing your home really is.
Making the Choice
You may want to contact some friends who have floor to ceiling windows and see how they feel. You can also work closely with a professional to figure out what you need. For some folks, the added visibility and extra sunlight is a huge selling point. For others, they just don’t think floor to ceiling windows will benefit their custom home.
