When it comes to home design, little can beat floor-to-ceiling windows. Not only do they add modernity to your house, they also give you a spectacular view of the outside world. Whether considering buying a house with these windows already installed or adding them onto a future project, there are a few things to keep in mind before making the switch. 


Imagine walking out to your living room in the morning with a cup of coffee in hand and the entire world in your view. If you’re in a house in the middle of the woods, it’s picturesque indeed. However, if your house is in the suburbs or the city, this can be  risky! If you’re choosing floor-to-ceiling windows in a more populated space, be sure to price out window fixtures so you can have a realistic expectation of how much your total cost will be.  


While they are gorgeous, floor-to-ceiling windows let in a lot of light which can cause your utility bill to quickly add up in the summertime. Again, window fixtures are key to ensuring your house remains efficient. Also, make sure you’re choosing high quality glass that will filter the UV rays as much as possible. 


Both pets and children can make cleaning floor-to-ceiling windows cumbersome. Soap and water can go a long way when it comes to routine washing, but if you have little creatures eager to leave their mark, make sure to keep an everyday cleaner and a microfiber cloth on hand. When it comes to outside maintenance, you’ll likely benefit most by finding a trusted window washing service in your area. 

While floor-to-ceiling windows require a bit more maintenance and money, they can be a fantastic feature in your house. If you’re looking for a way to make your home stand out, call us today at St. Louis Glass Works, and we’ll provide you with a free quote!
