Question about window sill height from floor
Trying to balance EE, light and privacy.
The current standard seems to be 24″ from floor to maximize light (and not be tempered).
We have 32″ in our current home and were thinking about going to 36″ from floor for regular windows in a room (not “high” windows), for example front street facing elevation. I realize this may be subjective or personal preference but is 36″ too high? Seems to provide more furniture options and privacy.
Anyone with first hand experience?
thanks in advance!
