Bigger window for the bedroom?

Recommended Posts

From an aesthetic/design perspective what do you think looks better, large or small window for the master bedroom (First floor, furthest right)?

Looks better on the right but... middle panel needs to match the rest ..!

South west.

 

Do you mean the middle panel to watch the render, like below?

What separates the windows on the right horizontally and why isn’t that the same in the middle windows?

Middle panel seems to be all glass yet others have a timber (????) middle section in line with the floor ..?

@newhome The middle window is a double height space, so there is no first floor there

This version works for me. But I hope you're not going to be giving your neighbours too much of an eyefull!

We are planning an 'Amsterdam' theme ;) 

 

The neighbours for the foreseeable future will be the bats and mice living in the old hall across the road.

Either works for me, the smaller window variant says trad design updated with a degree of modern large aperture glazing and is safer from a resale perspective. Although I am new to the selfbuild scene I already sense that self builders get carried away and incorporate an excess of glazed acreage in their designs.

Need a red light above the bedroom window then, but seriously, in 10 years or so will you want the (presumably human by then) neighbours seeing all your 10 year older wrinkly bits? O.o

+1 but if you go for the bigger windows separate with render to match that whole section as per pic 3. And wear boxers when standing to admire the view :)

@newhome the hall will be a community hall, so shouldn't be used that often.

 

I have seen the blinds that you can get that come up from the floor. I am thinking we could have floor and ceiling roller blinds for that window, we can decide exactly how much of the bedroom is visible from the outside at any given time of the day.

Worth checking how high above floor level is the horizontal as you need to consider safety when opening / cleaning.  I don't see that the windows either side of the double height need to match it, but they will probably look better matching each other.

I’ve seen those. They are called bottom up blinds IIRC. Could be appropriate for a bedroom ;)
