How Chip And Joanna Gaines Use A Window Wall To Manage House Noise
For a young girls’ shelter, Chip and Joanna Gaines added a window — instead of a wall — between two rooms to give the feel of an open-concept home, but with enough noise control.
The thought of an open-concept home can be freeing, allowing the space to feel and function as if it's larger. Without walls, the eyes can easily move throughout the open areas.
Installing a window makes it easy to see throughout the home — one of the features the shelter overseers wanted so they could monitor the girls — but the sound doesn't travel.
The window installed by the Gaineses has a bold black frame and is strikingly beautiful. It offers just enough visual presence to make it super easy for everyone to remain safe.
The window also allows light to flow through the rooms, making them seem brighter. Installing a window is a laborious, expensive process, but it adds to the house's upscale feel.
