Did I make my dining room window too small?

Posted by lnia (My Page) on

So, I have made some adjustments to windows post plans to make them more affordable. Now I wonder If i have gone overboard and am starting to affect the aesthetics of the home too much.

My biggest concern right now is dining room and den windows. They were originally 7 1/2 feel tall and 7 feet wide. I reduced them to 7 feet tall by 6 feet wide. I feel like they look too narrow now. I can still have carpenters change. What do you think? The room is ~ 12.5 inches wide by 17 feet long and the opening between the kitchen nook and the dining room is 7ft wide.

Would truly appreciate your feedback.

It's hard to tell without seeing the full scope from an outside exterior shot. With that said, it's looking like a nice size to me. Are you worried about the appearance from the interior or the exterior? Are you afraid they look too stubby (for lack of a better word) in relation to the rest of the exterior?

I think it looks fine. Remember that there will be trim, and in a suburban house, window treatments to consider. You will also have furniture on at least one wall. You want to leave a bit of breathing room.

here is the link of the exterior so far.

Basically, I think the door needs to be as wide as tall. the windows up above (bedroom) will be 5x5.
