Windows, on their own, help enhance the beauty and appeal of your home’s interiors and exteriors. A bit of creativity, however, can take their look to another level. You can achieve this by mulling them. Local door and window installation contractor STL Windows Direct discusses everything you need to know about this design technique and the distinct advantages that it can offer.
About Window Mulling
Mulling is a process that involves joining two or more windows together. It can be done at a factory or on-site during new home construction, remodel or window replacement projects. However, the complications that come with this design choice make it impossible to combine two oversized windows. In other words, there’s a limit to the size of the window unit being mulled. Apart from breaking a few building codes, you run the risk of weakening the mulled windows’ structural integrity.
Benefits of Window Mulling
Nevertheless, joining at least two windows offers unique benefits, including the following:
- Focal Point – A row of windows lining up an entire wall gives your interiors a clean, finished appearance that instantly draws one’s attention. If, however, you are aiming for a more detailed and bolder design statement, consider combining two different window styles and sizes to create a more custom look. For instance, you can place a semicircle-shaped window on top of a double-hung window.
- Uninterrupted Outdoor View – Joining two or more windows together means you get a “wall of glass” aesthetic. With this, you get a full view of your outdoor area, be it a beautiful landscape or your garden or patio.
- More Natural Light – The same glass area created by two mulled windows also allows adequate amounts of sunlight to enter your home. Apart from airier and more comfortable living spaces, it helps you save on energy because you won’t be relying too much on artificial lighting during the day.
