However, it is not just about keeping the windows open. Depending on the interior design of the house, you may want to include roof windows as well for good ventilation system.

There are many styles of modern windows you can choose; the trick is to choose what suits the room the best depending on its other qualities such as the interior space and light. If you want to add a bit of space to the place bay windows are the best. To get the best of natural light and breeze awning windows or sky-light windows can be chosen. Louvered windows are also ideal to control the light and breeze. Some other modern styles you can choose from are double hung windows, casement windows, sliding window, bi-fold windows, fixed windows and geometric windows.

Get the Right Drapes

After choosing the window style, then it is time to decorate it or add the final touch with the drapes. For the living room, since you want more light go for more sheer curtains that allow sunlight. Before choosing the curtains to measure the light and the width of the window. This can avoid you having uneven, too short or too lengthy curtains.  To get a more spacey vibe to the place opt for lightweight fabrics. For a little bit of extra décor and protection for the curtain you can choose valances and curtain lining.
