People invest in large windows because of their various benefits: the abundant amount of natural light, the expansive views, and the feeling of spaciousness. One of the challenges of large windows is how to decorate them. The general principle is that these windows shouldn’t be interrupted, especially if you have a great view. If you have existing large windows or are planning on getting new ones installed, here are some design ideas from Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico.
Theatrical design – Make the windows the centerpiece by treating it like a stage. By choosing drapes that look like theatrical curtains, whatever you place right in front of the windows become the main focal point. You can angle all the seating in the room to face the windows for an even more theatrical feel. If you’re worried about your coffee table books fading from sunlight, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass filters UV and infrared rays, keeping your books and fabrics from fading and your room from heating up.
Keep the floors clear – Placing furniture a few meters away from the windows adds a sense of invitation to come near the windows and gaze out. This works best on floor-to-ceiling picture windows combined with patio doors. If you have limited room space, avoid placing furniture against the windows, at least. By placing some distance between your windows and furniture, you make the room more intimate while maximizing use of your units.
Window treatments – There is a plethora of choices when it comes to window treatments, from shutters to dramatic curtains. What’s important is that window treatments should not draw attention away from the windows. They should create a pleasant-looking frame instead. If you wish to control your privacy or the amount of natural light, choose adjustable window treatments.
Keep the furniture at the same height – If possible, keep all the furniture at the same height to create a sense of continuity when appreciating a view. Irregular furniture and decor height can be distracting, especially in low light.
