Most homeowners who want to improve their home’s privacy usually end up dressing their windows with drapes and blinds. When you have charming windows, and privacy is not a problem, however, you can ditch the treatments. Doing so will not only give your rooms a unique focal point, but it will also make you appreciate your picturesque views more.
Use Chic Moldings
Moldings add a more sophisticated look to your windows while keeping your views clear. They also provide texture, which keeps your room from looking bleak. This is ideal for north-facing windows as they don’t have to block harsh direct light. South-facing windows without shades or blinds can cause overheating and glares around mid-day.
Apart from enhancing your windows’ appeal, you can also boost their functionality with open upper shelves. By stretching them across your windows, you can display your figurines, flowers, photos and other decorative items. You can also store your everyday utensils, but be sure to keep them organized.
As your trusted windows contractor, we only suggest this approach if your view is a neighboring building as this won’t make your room feel constrained. You should also ensure your windows stay operational.
Install Decorative Lights
If the angle of your window doesn’t bring in ample daylight, consider adding a pendant light. This fixture will not only brighten up your space, but it will also provide natural radiance from the outdoors. You can also combine it with open upper shelves.
