Image found on Pinterest | Jess Beck: Egress Windows, this is a great idea for basement windows. Note the raised beds outside the window. Great for added privacy.

Turn your dark basement in a sun-filled space by investing in an EGRESS WINDOW.

Required by law for safety issues, an egress window can provide you with many other benefits like natural light and ventilation, adding comfort and value to your extra space. Rooms that are used for sleeping need an opening for emergency escapes or rescues. An egress window fits the legal requirements and is the least expensive option available. Although this type of openness is not a requirement for other remodeling basement projects such as a home office, gym, game room, or family room, it is still a good idea to include an exit window in the building. You’ll be glad of the flexibility it allows in case you want to change the purpose of the room one day – or use it as an occasional guest room at the time.
