Tall Windows -- Do you like them?
We are getting all new windows and will stay in the same width but can choose a new height. Our house is a 1960's waterfront Cape Cod. We are going with casements in the back but double hungs with finelight grilles on the front. We are getting 3 dormers in the front.
Here is my question: For the front of th ehouse -- I like the look of tall windows from the outside, but re: furniture placement and privacy from the front & porch, I do not like them. We are planning to go with 4' high (we have 8' high ceilings) so the bottom of the windows would be "about" the height of a sofa or desk. Should we go 5 inches lower? Is this the trend?
Your input is really appreciated because I have been struggling with this decision.
