A long window that takes up all of the wall is great at properly daylighting your home. The big, empty space underneath, however, is tricky to furnish and even more difficult to decorate without making everything look too forced or bulky. Seamless Exteriors, Inc., your trusted windows contractor, lists four ways to make the most out of your window wall.
1. Furnish A Mini-Office Area
A large window wall is a perfect place to install a small office area. It’s as simple as installing a long desk area underneath the windows. You fill up that tacky negative space beneath the windows by making it serve a function. Additionally, your new desk area has an impressive view of the outdoors with some ample natural daylight.
2. Window Lounge
The space between your window makes for an excellent lounge area as the views of the windows establish this open invitation to just relax and lounge about in the sun. This works best with large, ceiling-to-floor replacement windows so there’s a seamless transition between the lounge and the windows. It also makes your room appear larger than it really is.
3. A Long Library Works, Too
Installing long or stacked shelves beneath the window turns the otherwise empty wall space into a functional reading area with a long library. A low library is always a welcome addition to any room even if you don’t have a dedicated home office area.
4. Install Extra Storage
Finally, the space beneath the window is a good area to install some extra storage boxes, shelves, or even a long dresser. Just make sure that you choose a design that complements your interior aesthetics, so it looks flush to the wall and the window.
