You’ve been through the usual list of living room renovation ideas. A fresh coat of paint helped, but it wasn’t enough to transform your living room into a room you really wanted to live and entertain in. You looked at furniture, but decided the cost of new furniture was too high in comparison to the benefits. What about your floor covering? You don’t even notice your hardwood floors because they’re always in the shade. That’s when it dawns on you: the problem with your living room is a lack of light.
In older homes and even many newer homes, living rooms are more like TV rooms you use only at night. There may be a window or two, but they aren’t large enough to bathe the room in indirect sunlight. Open plan designs help, but they only open up the interior space. What you need to do is bring the outside in with timber windows and doors.
To get an idea of what a dramatic difference timber windows and doors can make in a living room, have a look at the Living Area gallery on the Allkind Joinery Brisbane website. Imagine what one room would look and feel like if there was a wall instead of a bank of timber bifold doors. Look at the beautiful arched windows in another photograph and think about what the room looked like before, when a bland aluminium window was in their place.
Timber windows and timber doors are one of the most cost-efficient ways to renovate a living room for a number of reasons:
- They open up the room, making it appear larger.
- Timber windows enhance the appearance of the entire room, becoming a stylish focal point and bathing the room in a flattering, natural light.
- Timber doors can be opened when the weather is fine, transforming an indoor room into a spacious indoor/outdoor living and entertaining area.
- Double glazing keeps the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter without having to close the curtains and shut the light out.
- Spacious windows and glass and timber doors make your outdoor landscaping part of your decor.
Compare the cost of timber windows and doors to the cost of new furnishings and floor coverings. The cost can be about the same or even less, but the benefits are far greater. In many cases, they eliminate the need to buy new furniture or floor coverings because they make everything in a living room look fresh and new again.
