Tips to Bring in More Sunlight to Your Home This Fall

Bringing in more natural light is one of the simplest and most effective ways to make your living spaces brighter and more spacious-looking. Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City, your local source of home replacement windows, shares tips on how you can do so this fall.

Install Windows in Unusual Places

Bathrooms and shower spaces need to have windows. Letting natural light inside these areas drastically changes their entire appearance. If privacy is a concern, don’t worry. You can install transoms instead of conventional windows similar to the ones found in your home. They tend to be horizontal and placed high above the bathroom walls.

Brighten Dark Spaces in Your Home

If your basement looks dark and gloomy, consider installing a window or two in it. Apart from adding light to this dark area of your home with these windows, you also establish an important feature for your home: an egress window that you can open in cases of emergency.

Use Windows Effectively

It is not enough that you add more windows anywhere in your home for more daylighting. You still have to orient them the right way so you can achieve the best results. For instance, casement window replacement contractors recommend installing windows on your home’s north side. It usually receives constant natural lighting, allowing any room to be filled with even amounts of sunlight throughout the day.

Invest in a Sliding Patio Door

Aside from windows, you can also bring more natural light into your home with patio doors, particularly the sliding type. It can seamlessly connect your interiors with your outdoor space while providing easy operation. Combined with windows, the sliding patio door creates a “wall of light that will instantly illuminate your home’s interior.

"We recently replaced all of the windows in our home. I was most impressed with the friendly staff who knew what I wanted before I did. They seemed to be able to find the perfect window for each one we replaced. We are very pleased with the result. From beginning to end they were professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Renewal by Anderson."
