Windows can be more than a simple light source or a portal to the outside. Choosing the right window invites creativity, style, and even value to your home. Custom windows, in particular, are a great way to add just that, but even better are floor-to-ceiling windows!

Welcome in lots of healthy natural light
It’s no secret that natural sunlight provides a big health boost, both mentally and physically. Many medical studies have found that exposure to sunlight helps improve moods, feel calmer and more focused. Sunlight is also what triggers the brain to release serotonin, the chemical that makes you feel happy. So by adding floor-to-ceiling windows, you’ll be letting a healthy flood of sunlight in easily! Plus, lots of sunlight during the winter months will help keep away those seasonal blues.
Add a sense of spaciousness
If you want to give a smaller room a bigger sense of height and space, then floor-to-ceiling windows can do just that. The windows themselves create the illusion of height by drawing the eye upwards. It’s a perfect way to transform a small room, without actually renovating the walls to expand the room. Likewise, these windows can work for an already large room. Instead of having just a room with four large walls, and possibly too much space, a large window creates a focal point. The window will provide a sense of grandness to the room that will help balance the height and fill the space.
Customizable materials and design
As with any custom windows, you can pick and choose exactly what will fit your needs and your wants. The size of the window can be made to fit any opening in your home, given the right support. If you want a window wall, for example, then the size and customization will be made to fit the space. You can also choose exactly what materials you want, depending on whether you want low-maintenance, budget-friendly or more customization.
There’s also a choice about glass performance, from Low-E, thick glass or energy efficient. Then, of course, there are different window finishes, frames, and colours. It may seem like a lot, but when you know exactly what you want, a custom window lets you get just that. If you need some ideas, check out these floor-to-ceiling windows for inspiration.
Passive heating means lower bills
Passive heating means using a natural source of heat as a way of warming yourself or a room up. If you have enough passing heating, it’s a great way to save a little on those monthly heating bills. Especially during the colder winter months. Luckily, floor-to-ceiling windows are all about passive heating. By letting in lots of sunlight, it also allows in lots of heat. So next time you’re bundled up on the couch enjoying your window view, you won’t find yourself reaching for the thermostat.
On the other hand, passive heating during the summer isn’t always ideal. Luckily, the current trend for floor-to-ceiling windows is to add curtains. Curtains are great for both design and additional décor, as well as being practical. Leave them open during the day for some added elegance and to enjoy the view and closed at night for privacy!
