No matter what the weather is doing, you can always enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your home. Having to choose between being outside or inside is not always a simple choice in our Wisconsin climate, but it just got a lot easier.
For example, have you ever wanted your living room to look out at a scene of a forest or lakeshore? Though it might seem impossible, with the right layout and products, it can be accomplished.
It is called biophilic design, and it is not as intimidating or complex as the name may suggest. It simply means to bring the natural world into the unnatural world such as your home.
While you may not be able to bring the actual forest or lakeshore into your home, you can still bring a little piece of the outdoors inside with you. There is a sense of peace and relaxation nature can bring to you, so why not have that in your living room or bedroom?
There are many benefits to being outside:
- Fresh air
- Natural light (vitamin D!)
And one of the ways to help incorporate these elements to the inside of your home is through the use of windows and patio doors. This allows the exterior benefits to transfer to your home’s interior, which is exactly what a biophilic design is meant to do!
The amount of natural light can greatly change a room. Rooms with little to no natural light can be very dull and stagnant. Have you ever noticed how much your bedroom or kitchen changed just by allowing more light inside? It is truly amazing what more natural light can do for a room, and your mood!
While light from outside can dramatically change a room, it will probably not change much if the window or patio door is of poor quality.
Did you know not all windows and patio doors are the same? It is not a “one size fits all.” In fact, this approach to window replacement can often be a hindrance in transforming a regular room in your home to a room you actually want to spend time in.
The Infinity® from Marvin® fiberglass windows and patio doors do exactly that. Due to the strength of the Ultrex® fiberglass material, the frames are thinner and the glass space bigger. This translates into more natural light coming into your home, while also expanding your view of the exterior environment surrounding your home.
Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows and patio doors provide the ability to bring the beautiful views and natural light from the outdoors into your home without some of the less desirable aspects, like summertime mosquito swarms.
Stop wishing you could have more light and better views into your home and make it a reality!
