Windows and Doors: How to Improve Views From Your Home

Scenic views can help increase your property’s value, not to mention increase your own enjoyment of your home. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Austin shares some tips on how to choose the right windows and doors to maximize the views from your home. 

Larger Windows 

Investing in large windows provides panoramic views of your landscape. Alternatively, you can invest in a “window wall” composed of smaller units all in a row. Not only will this give you a beautiful view of the outdoors, but it will also fill your living space with rejuvenating natural light.

High Windows and Sliding Patio Doors 

For balconies and patios, we recommend installing high windows and sliding patio doors. Railings on balconies and patios can prevent you from enjoying an uninterrupted view of the scenery outside from the comfort of your living room. To offset the obstruction, you can install high windows above the patio doors. 

Keep the Design Consistent 

Your new windows should complement the rest of your exterior. Modern homes tend to favor wide windows with large glass areas and minimal obstructions. The minimalist design of these windows makes it easier to integrate them into a wide variety of design schemes. 

Traditional homes, on the other hand, tend to favor windows with partitions, like double-hung windows. It’s trickier to maximize the views in this kind of home. If you’re having trouble picking a window style, one of our design consultants can offer guidance.
