Floor-to-ceiling windows always add architectural flair to any home. Whether they occupy the entire wall space and wrap around the corners, they frame marvelous views like no other units can. With great design, you can use these oversized windows to best effect. As you plan for your window replacement in Wichita, KS, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas recommends these tips when adding tall glass units:
Have Zero Obstructions
Sometimes, the best design for full-height windows is no decorations. Leaving the space in front of your units empty creates unobstructed views. This design concept creates the ultimate sense of seamless connection between your interior and the outdoors. With no visual clutter, you can blur the line that separates your room and its outdoor landscape. If you have just one large window, it’s best to let it stand on its own and maximize its length for views.
Mind the Space in Between
If solid areas punctuate your walls of full-height replacement windows in Wichita, don’t leave them blank. You can utilize the empty wall space by adding some shelving to declutter the room and displaying ornaments. The richness of detail of the space between your oversized windows adds visual weight to the design. The right set of items produces more texture to complement the smooth surface of the glass.
Arrange Furniture Thoughtfully
When putting furniture is truly necessary, put a premium on the placement of your pieces to leave the outdoor scenery virtually unobstructed. A good rule of thumb is to set furniture a few feet from your large windows. This way, you can create a natural aisle and make your couch or table harmonize with your glass units well.
However, if you really must place the furniture up against your full-height window, a consider sleek piece that can supplement that sweeping panorama. In addition, consider glass and acrylic pieces of furniture. See-through pieces practically wouldn’t hinder the units and creates an airy ambiance.
