Natural light is the first thing you need to consider when building a new home or adding new windows to an existing home. The sunlight washing over certain areas is crucial. Do you like your bedroom dark and cozy or bright and cheery? The size and location of windows, french doors, sliders and skylights make all the difference.
Maybe you like large floor to ceiling windows to expose the great views outside.
Your personal library or office is often more serene and could use smaller windows keeping the room more relaxed.
Whatever your preference, the placement of all windows and doors should reflect your personal lifestyle.
