For those who live in multi-generational homes, homeowners may be interested in aging-in-place designs. This is why many choose to conduct remodeling projects to make their home safer, energy-efficient and easier to use for their loved ones. This also applies to the home’s windows since they’re a core component of the home.
With that said, it’s important to keep the windows user-friendly, especially for those who are aging in place. In this post, Hershey Exteriors, Inc, your trusted window contractor, shares the best options for their needs.
- Easy-to-Use Windows
One great window option that fits the bill are easy-to-open slider windows. These windows operate by gliding along a track, which are easier to use since they don’t require much back and joint movement, compared to double- and single-hung windows. These windows can be strenuous to use since they need to be pushed and pulled. Another viable option is a window that has simple, smooth cranks that can be operated.
- Low-Maintenance Windows
During your next window project, you can ask your contractor for recommendations on low-maintenance window options. One of these windows that you can consider are vinyl windows. They are simple, easy to clean and more energy efficient than wooden windows.
- Privacy Windows
It’s important for your windows to conceal your indoor movement. Thankfully, there are many friendly options to do so. You can use acrylic blocks with various patterns or privacy films to create a frosted look from the outside. Other high-end options include installing a remote-controlled tint that can darken your windows with a single touch.
