In an Era of Social Distancing and Quarantines, Large Windows Are Making a Comeback

After the initial surge in cases, a lot of people relaxed about the pandemic, assuming it would not last long. The experts have always said there would be a second wave, and that wave seems to be coming right on schedule. With cases once more on the rise, people are going to be staying home once again. 

COVID is here to stay, and until a vaccine can be developed, we are likely to continue going through cycles of surges and lulls in cases. Once we have a vaccine or when pandemic safety measures are agreed upon and implemented across the country, we will be able to be out in the world, with restrictions for safety. 

But if you are one of the many who tend to feel cooped up in the winter, this one is bound to be even harder than usual. Not only will you be spending more time indoors due to the weather, you’ll also likely be staying home to work and socialize as well.

During this quarantine period, until we get COVID-19 under control, we have to come up with creative ways to reduce the risk of seasonal and pandemic depression. One of the best ways to do that is with large windows.

With large picture windows at the front of your home, you’ll have a view of the entire neighborhood. You can see your neighbors coming home from work, wave to their kids playing on bikes in the street, and still feel like you are part of the world, even if you are too vulnerable to go out in it during the pandemic.

You can also stave off depression by keeping up with your favorite hobbies. If you love to read, now is the perfect time to start on that inevitable stack of books that won’t even fit on the shelves. Installing some bay windows with a window seat can create a beautiful and airy spot for casual reading.
