3 Tips to Make Windows The Focal Point of Any Room

Identifying the portion of your home that you want to accentuate can affect the overall interior. It will significantly influence the alignment of furniture while taking the focus off the less charming features of your living space. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, your trusted replacement windows provider, shares some tips to make your windows the focal point of any room.

1. Pick an Interesting Window Style.

Windows come in various sizes, designs, and colors. The variety of options, however, can make it very difficult to decide. Our advice is to choose the style that will suit your home’s interior.

A bay window, for instance, can provide a dramatic architectural look. It adds an extra space for a daybed, bench, reading nook, or storage. You can draw eyes to this window by using sophisticated and classy colors, textural fabrics, and many pillows to encourage lounging.

2. Use the Right Window Treatments.

There is no need to cover your windows up when they provide a great view of the outdoors. Otherwise, you can search for different kinds of window treatment suitable for your needs. Curtains, drapes, and blinds can highlight your windows.

You can style your double hung windows by adding simple curtain panels or draperies. You can also unify them using asymmetric swag curtains draped across the top of each. In addition, you can visually frame these windows with flowing panels attached to rings that draw easily across a stylish rod.

3. Place Furniture in Proper Spots.

Your windows and furnishings should harmonize the room. Make sure that pieces of furniture that you will get will complement your home. Situate your sofa, table, or cabinet in a way that will let your windows stand out.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
