How do you choose windows and doors for a living room?

New doors and windows are a significant purchase, and one you’ll live with for many years to come. So it’s important that you get it right. And in order for the doors and windows in your living room to create a comfortable and aesthetic environment, it is important to consider how you’ll use the room, and what the general environment is like.

There are two main factors that you need to consider when choosing new doors and windows:

  • Noise isolation. Double-glazed windows can protect you from external nouse – something you’ll want to take into account if you live in a city or near a busy road. If you live in a noisy area, a double-glazed unit with different widths of chambers and thickened outer glass will help to keep out some of the noise pollution. You can also use triplex as an external glass — its multilayer structure also effectively copes with noise protection.
  • Thermal insulation. The best performance is offered by six-chamber profiles with an assembly width of 70 mm and above with a double-glazed window. Energy saving glass and argon filling of the chambers are also excellent solutions. And if your living room is on the sunny side, you should also consider the sun-protection of double-glazed windows.

By choosing the right windows, you can improve the energy efficiency and sound insulation of your room. So when buying new windows and doors, it’s important to look beyond just size and design.
