Window considerations for custom designed sheds

Depending on what you're using your custom-designed shed for, windows can take on different levels of importance.

For instance, if you're constructing a space to store heavy equipment, chances are letting in natural light won't be much of a priority. However, if you're looking to build a commercial shed that can be used as a retail outlet or office, chances are window placement will be at the top of your list.

We here at Shed Boss are happy to explore window options with our clients, figuring out which choices best suit your needs.

Importance of windows

The most obvious benefit of window installation in custom designed sheds is access to natural light. Commercial sheds used as office space or workshops can benefit greatly from abundant natural light.

Not only can it help businesses cut down on the need for lighting fixtures, and in turn reduce their power bills, access to natural light and the great outdoors through a well-placed window can do much to improve employee mood. After all, an enclosed space with nothing but fluorescent light isn't likely to boost morale.

Additionally, open windows will help improve airflow and can reduce the need for heating and cooling systems.

Focusing on details

Windows are more than just squares of glass. As part of your shed design, you'll have many options to choose from.

For example, do you plan on having windows open often in your custom designed shed? If so, you may wish to invest in barrier screens for your windows. Or if you're in an area where high sunlight could be more of a distraction, you could opt for grey tint or obscured glass to help reduce glare.

Regardless of your choices, Shed Boss will be there every step of the way to assist you, from designing your shed and obtaining the proper permits to constructing a beautiful finished product.
