DUO recently completed a beautiful kitchen renovation in Arva, ON. This kitchen included a popular design feature we include in many of our renovations, large picture windows! It is a great idea to add light to any room by enlarging openings. However, it is important to consider the heat that will be generated by larger windows. Plan on adding a film to the glass that can block some of the solar gain so things don’t heat up too much! It doesn’t need to have a dark tint, in this case we added an almost clear window film to block some of the cheddar melting temperatures.
