In rooms with high ceilings, window positioning should be started respecting the general rules, because, when we talk about positioning windows in the room, from a technical point of view, the same rules apply to rooms with high ceilings as for those with standard ceiling height, but there are still specific requirements that need to be met, which we will list here.
Choosing the right window for your attic begins with measuring the living area to be illuminated. Then, based on this information and depending on the orientation of the roof plane in relation to the sun, the required window area should be calculated. One should also keep in mind the need for ventilation, the fact that different types of windows have different efficiencies, the fact that in addition to size, the position of the window affects the amount of lighting and ventilation, etc.
The entry of natural sunlight into the interior of the house is a basic factor that improves the comfort of any living space, directly affects the mood and energy of people living in that space, and also improves the health aspects of it. In a well-designed house, natural light can emphasize the quality of the space, provide visual comfort and reduce energy consumption, so it is very important to correctly determine the size of the window. The entry of as much natural light as possible into the rooms, nowadays, has become one of the main requirements when designing houses in order to provide users the necessary comfort and quality of life when staying indoors, because a modern man spends most of the day indoors.
