Let the Light Shine - Natural Light Increases Your Home’s Value

When planning the design of your home, your windows will play a significant role in the decisions you make. When considering all of your options, it's important to understand the valuable role that windows play in any space. By choosing the right windows, you can increase the amount of natural light that enters your home, and thereby also increase the value of your property!

Make your home more spacious:

When you paint a room with dark paint or cover the walls with dark wallpaper, it will make the room appear and feel smaller. The opposite is true for light colors. These rules of contrast also correspond with light and darkness. If a room has plenty of natural light, it will appear larger and more spacious. A dark room can often come across as cramped. By choosing the right window, you can make even the smallest room in your home appear bigger and more versatile.

Health benefits:

It’s no secret that the warmth of the sunlight filtering through your windows is known for being a great mood enhancer, while darkness can have the opposite effect. For families and those working from home, natural light is essential. The brain can use all the help it can get, and natural light can give you just the boost you need. According to the Lighting Research Center in Troy, New York; natural light helps provide visual and mental stimulation. Their research also supports the fact that well-lit homes are more pleasant to live in and therefore more sought-after. There are endless benefits to opening your home to the possibilities of more natural light!

Experienced Buyers:

According to a Display Villages Report by Lonergan Research, second and third-time property buyers truly value the use of natural light in a space. The better the natural lighting throughout the home, the more likely the buyers were to express an interest in that particular property.

The Lighting Research Center also noted that commercial buildings enjoyed fifteen percent in savings on electrical bills by maximizing natural light. If this is true in the commercial sector, it most certainly applies in the residential sector as well. This makes it clear why experienced property buyers and flippers consider natural lighting a priority. When buying a home, the cost of daily living and upkeep is one of the main concerns.

By choosing the right windows, you can turn even the darkest corner of your home into a quaint and creative refuge. NorthShield Windows and Doors offers a full range of windows in various sizes, styles, and colors! We even offer custom shaped windows, making it that much easier to ensure you find a style that suits your needs ! Call us today for more information about getting more light in your home.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
