5 Ways You Can Turn Your Windows Into the Room’s Focal Point

The windows are important parts of every home as not only can they help make your home more energy-efficient but also increase your aesthetic appeal and property values. What some don’t know, however, is that the windows can also be turned into your home’s focal point.

Here, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois shares five ways you can turn your windows into the focal point of your home.

Place Furniture Next to It – One way you can turn your replacement windows into your home’s focal point is by placing furniture next to it. Consider the furniture you want in that room and think about how it can be centered around your window. For instance, if you want to turn the living room windows into the room’s focal point, place a couch in front of it to draw attention to that direction.

Add an Area Rug in Front of the Furniture – After you’ve placed the couch in front of your windows, you can further accentuate this by placing an area rug in front of it as it’ll provide a clear path to the window area. If your living room has a neutral color, make sure to choose a rug that complements these colors to shift the gaze toward the window area.

Curtains – Window treatments like curtains are always a good way to draw attention to your windows. When choosing curtains, experts recommend that you choose ones with bold prints to act as a statement piece for the room.

Add Wall Decor – To aid your curtains in turning the windows into the room’s focal point, consider adding wall decor on each side as well. That way, you can generate further visual interest to contrast the colors of the couch and curtains.

Natural Lighting – The windows are a good source of natural lighting for any room and you can easily turn this in your favor if you want to turn them into the room’s focal point. To accomplish this, consider adding plants that can draw attention to the natural light and curtains that can be kept to the side of the windows.

"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!"
