Because of its simple design, a picture window can afford to be one of the bigger replacement windows available. This makes the picture window a possible main attraction, drawing the attention of people in a room. Here are a few ideas from Seamless Exterior that can help you bring the focus to your picture windows.
Use Bright Frames
One of the best ways to bring attention to your picture window is to use frames with bold colors. The more they create a contrast with the wall and nearby furniture, the more attention it will get since it will tend to stick out. Just make sure you’re not picking a color that will clash with the rest of the room; you’re looking for contrast, not conflict.
Frame It With Treatments
No, we’re not talking about the actual window frames. By using certain types of window treatments, you can direct a person’s eyes to your new picture window. For example, a window company can recommend tall drapes or curtains that will add flair to the sides of the window, making it more prominent. Different colors and patterns will also have an effect on how well these treatments will bring the focus to your picture window.
Use Furniture to Your Advantage
You can also try to shift the visual focus to your picture window with clever placement of other furniture. For example, you can put tall bookshelves on either side of the picture window to frame it or even add a chair directly under it. Such an arrangement of visual elements in a room will be hard to ignore.
Add More Windows
Larger windows can be complemented by smaller picture windows to make them more interesting, so why not do the reverse for your picture window? Having a windows contractor like Seamless Exterior add a double-hung or casement window to complement it will create a similar effect.
