There are a growing number of ways in which you can customize your shipping container. While adding a window may not be the first thing that comes to mind there are many ways in which you may benefit from adding a window.
Drastically Expand Your Options
You may have no need for a window in a container that will be repurposed as a storage space, extra storage is far from your only option. By simply adding a window, you can drastically expand your options. With even one strategically placed window you can transform your container into a fully functioning workspace or extension of your home. Many dual-purpose containers can benefit from a window. For example, a container that doubles as tool storage and a workshop will be easier to work in with a bit of natural light.
Depending on what you are storing, growing, or how your container will be used—adding a window is one way to improve ventilation. Our secure storage container windows can be welded or bolted on. With a secure gate that only opens from the inside, you can keep intruders out. This means that your window will also double as a secondary escape route that you can exit from the inside. If ongoing ventilation is required in addition to, or instead of a window, we also carry vents.
If you will be utilizing your container as a workspace, indoor garden, or extension of your home—adding a window to your container will make it feel less like a container and more like the space, it is designed to be. The light will ensure your garden grows, make your container feel larger, and as with any window, you will be able to enjoy the scenery and natural lighting. In terms of decorating and privacy, you can add a curtain or blinds to your shipping container window.
To Evolve Your Space
It is not uncommon for container owners to purchase a container or two to fulfill a specific need, then explore more options. As your container continues to evolve, you are sure to consider a variety of accessories and add-ons. If the space will be used in any way as a place you or family or team will spend more than a few minutes at a time, a window will go a long way in comfort.
You can add as many windows as you want. This makes it possible to use your storage container to work, play, or live in. Reach out to Customize My Container today to learn more.
