3 Tips for Using Windows as Focal Points in Homes

Your windows can serve as stunning focal points inside your home. Here are some ways you can direct your family and guests’ attention to your windows, courtesy of Renewal by Andersen® of Austin, the top supplier of French doors in Texas.

Frame the Windows With Curtains

Framing the windows with curtains helps draw more attention to them. Experts recommend using sheer curtains as these will attract interest in the windows without blocking light from entering. Curtains with bold prints can also work, as these will attract eyes as well.

Use Plants

Placing plants near your windows and doors will also work to draw  attention to them. You can place small potted plants in front of your window or hang them outside in a window box.

Rearrange Your Furniture

Placing the right furniture near your windows will also help command some attention to them. Placing the TV center between windows in the living room will work, as will placing a dark-colored couch in front of the window. Just make sure that the windows are low-E coated to protect furniture from damage due to UV rays.
