Regardless of whether the room is located on the south or north side of the house, a living room with multiple windows and doors will be well lit at any time of the year. Living room interiors with two windows on different walls always look light and fresh. The abundance of light makes the room visually spacious and opens up the possibility of using a dark palette.
A living room with multiple doors and windows simplifies space zoning: openings are already excellent dividers. A beautiful view from the window openings will add extra points to the design, as well as money to your budget, as fewer artificial light sources are required, which will save on electricity.
How to choose windows and doors
The very fact of your desire to order, buy, and deliver good quality windows and doors to your house, apartment or office, already has a place to be. Only a tiny question remains — how should you choose windows and doors? Many, faced with the need to choose windows, understand how responsible the choice is to be made. Different types of window designs have their pros and cons. The problem arises — which system to choose, and which one will suit you best.
The main function of the window (except for light transmission) is to protect the room from heat loss. How high the heat-shielding properties of the window are, depends not only on the warmth or cold in the house, but also on the heating costs. The heat-shielding properties of windows depend on a number of factors:
- The number of cameras.
- The distance between the glasses (the width of the inter-glass space).
- Depending on the type of glass — whether it is ordinary or energy-saving. Low-E coated glass retains heat much better in the room, reflecting it back into the room.
- What the space between the glasses is filled with — air or inert gas.
Under some conditions, the sound insulation of a window is no less important than its heat-shielding properties.
In recent years, there has been an active growth in the introduction of high-quality technologies in the production of doors and windows. New materials have appeared that meet increased safety and environmental requirements. When purchasing doors for an apartment or house, be sure to read the product passport that indicates the following:
- Material of construction and coating of the canvas.
- Moisture and wear resistance.
- UV protection (surface discoloration), resistance to cleaning agents.
Buyers can choose from a wide range of materials and designs, taking into account the purpose of the premises and the operating conditions.
Manufacturers use different materials to make canvases. They affect the cost and properties of the door. For example, canvases from an array are considered the most reliable. They are capable of serving for decades. Much depends on the type of wood. For example, beech, oak, and maple are more reliable than pine and other conifers.
