The concept of Intentional Design means you want everything in your space to work together effortlessly. Your furniture reflects your lifestyle, and is the correct size for your room. Window treatments not only complement your décor, but the styles you choose don’t interfere with operational hardware or pose safety risks for small children. Color and texture choices express your personality, and are easy to clean, especially if you have indoor pets.
Got the idea?
There isn’t a standard intentional design formula. You have to create your own purposeful design. Your personal plan depends on whether you’re looking for a place to play your favorite guitar rescued from the local pawn shop, or you have $20,000 invested in recording, mixing and back tracking equipment that needs a home.

In the meantime, here are two examples that show explain how intentional design drives renovation projects.
Unwinding in Comfort
Let’s say you’re interested in converting your bonus room into an entertainment hub – a place to watch movies, or listen to your favorite recording artist belt it out on the surround system. Maybe you want to create the perfect spot to watch your favorite sports channel. After all, you can’t mount a 72-inch flat screen with quantum dot technology on just any wall. Right?
Glass options in a home entertainment room are broader than options for a professional recording studio. But, if you’re interested in controlling noise transfer and glare in your home entertainment room, our ENERGY-STAR certified glass choices give you several options.
For example, our custom-built picture windows manufactured with High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun glass, let you control the amount of visible light transfer and reduce the amount of outdoor noise you hear. If you also install high-quality room-darkening, noise reduction drapery, you’ll boost environmental control.
Unless you’re planning to invest in an expensive air filtration system, you’ll want at least one operational window in every room. There are dozens of window configurations to accomplish ventilation goals without compromising environmental control, particularly if people may be sleeping in them.
Just two possibilities include flanking your picture window with narrow, casement windows, or mulling an awning above the main window. Once you’ve decided on the style and glass, you can move onto other window design features, and consider other elements in your room – furniture, wall texture and flooring.
Composing: Creating for Inspiration
Here’s another example of how intentional design helps you create rooms that function perfectly, on purpose.
If you enjoy tinkering around with your keyboard and composing music in your spare time, you probably draw inspiration from the world around you. Are you inspired by the rhythm of the city or the views outside? Consider installing low-profile sliding glass doors, or even an oversized French-door configuration, to replace large windows. You’ll showcase the New Jersey and Metro New York landscape and allow those inspirational aromas and resonances to envelop you when the weather is agreeable.
Our high-quality replacement windows all deliver exceptional protection from the outside elements when closed. If you’re planning to bring the outdoors in for inspiration, protect your equipment and composition tools with covers when not in use. Remember, when it comes to intentional design, no detail is too small to consider. Ask about window and door locks that improve security, and window screens that keep pesky flies, biting insects and airborne irritants outdoors.
Other Important Intentional Design Details
The time you spend creating home entertainment hubs and studios is as important as the passion you invest in your art (or entertainment).
