From Terrible to Terrific: Improving a Bad View

A good window can easily brighten up and add personality to your living space. However, what you see outside that frame also matters. Your window can match your beautiful French doors, but it would not be enough if you can directly see your neighbor’s property or the air conditioning units of the adjacent building.

From Terrible to Terrific Improving a Bad View

Fret not, Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey-New York Metro shares here several ways you can turn your terrible view into a terrific one:

Plant Up

Get your green thumb working. Start with placing potted indoor plants on a console table against your window. Snake plants, English Ivy and Pothos are your best choices. Hanging plants can also be a good addition to your forest inspired windows.

On the other hand, if you have space in front of your window, you can opt for bamboo or trellis to conceal the view. With plants, you now have a greener view and cleaner air.

Add Furniture

Surprisingly, it is easy to change the focal point of your house. A simple couch placed against your window can direct your view to the sliding patio doors that lead to your garden.

If it is in your room, try positioning your headboard against the window. Mirrors can also give an optical illusion when placed at the right angles.

Hang Curtains

Play with different designs and materials. A curtain can simply block the unpleasant view and transform it according to your preference. You can even match your curtains to the vibe you are going for.

If you want a classy and elegant space, you can place velvet drapes or silk curtains of your choice.
