Obtaining a stunning home décor must take into account every little detail. While some elements are more important than others, certain home staples represent the very foundation of a wonderful and cohesive design. Windows, for instance, are one of the most crucial home features that contribute to an overall aesthetic. In particular, floor-to-ceiling windows possess multiple characteristics that allow them to stand out.
Not only do these types of windows let in an abundance of natural light, they also allow scenic views of your outdoor space. They likewise enable a close connection between the interior and exterior areas while simultaneously delineating boundaries between the two.
The problem is how to decorate around these so-called walls of windows. The gist? Maximize the view and make those glass panes count, suggests Southard Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas.
Maximize the View
Starting with the obvious, make sure to preserve an unobstructed view as much as possible. If you have a home with plenty of space, this shouldn’t be any concern. And even if your home isn’t as open and large, floor-to-ceiling windows can give anyone a sense of freedom by creating a visual effect that makes any room seem more spacious.
Conquer the Middle Ground
If you’re having problems about where to place your furnishings, consider placing them in the middle of the room. Depending on where you place the sofa, for instance, you can use window treatments, accent lighting, and art to create balance. Make sure, however, to put a few feet of empty space in front of the window, as it can make a world of difference.
Maximize the In-Between
Another key to decorating homes with floor-to-ceiling windows is to maximize the space between each window. For example, a bookshelf or any furniture not wide enough might suffice. The space on either side can then still provide a clear, unobstructed view of the outside. Shelves in this situation may also help by holding all the decorating necessities while putting parted curtains can still make your windows the focal point.
Add Visual Warmth to The Space
The view may be great, but if you feel that the room lacks visual warmth, you can add fabric but be sure to leave the windows bare. Graphic rugs and colorful throw pillows, combined with accessories and accent lighting allow you to add a personal touch. In addition, consider getting sheers with patterned styles and embroidery.
Regardless of the type of décor and the room they are part of, floor-to-ceiling windows are always a welcome addition to any Wichita, Derby, and Topeka homes. Most commonly, they can be seen in living rooms and even bedrooms, but limitless design possibilities abound. To know more, call us at (855) 871-9140 and get your free consultation.
