The Ways You Can Take Advantage of Your Sunny Windows

Apart from protecting your home from the elements and water damage, windows have another purpose; letting natural light into your home’s interior. Done right, your home can have a bright and cozy ambiance during the day. You can also take advantage of the light that your windows bring in through various ways.

The Ways You Can Take Advantage of Your Sunny Windows

In this post, window company Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri discusses the various ways you can take advantage of your sunny windows.

Soften the Light

While sunny windows can be a wonderful addition to any home, they are quite bright and you’ll likely be shading your eyes most of the time during the day. You can retain the natural lights it brings in by adding fitting curtains for your window in order to soften the light. While white remains the classic choice, any light shade of color will help temper the dazzle.

Hanging Plants

Want to give your home a natural, earthy feeling? You can always dangle some store-bought plants or homemade terrariums against your sunny windows to brighten up your home with their natural colors.

Relaxation Spot

Whether it’s a window seat, tables and chairs for you to enjoy your morning coffee, or a reading nook, a relaxation spot that allows you to take advantage of the morning light is a plus in any home. You not only enjoy what the sun has to offer but you’re also getting a good helping of Vitamin D in the process.

Work Space

Nobody likes staring at a dull white wall when they work. With that said, consider placing your home desk by your window and decorate it to make it the best work space possible. That way, you can enjoy a view of the outside world as you conduct your work.

Black Walls

Surprisingly, black walls work well with sunny windows since it gives your home a modern pairing. The minimalist, deep black color also tones down the sunlight for your visual enjoyment.

Herb Garden

With some water and the natural light entering your sunny windows, you can start your own herb garden on the windowsill. Simply fill a small pot with soil and add the seeds in with the proper care and you’ll have the herbs of your choosing ready in a few weeks. Not only will the herbs give off a nice, pleasant smell for your home but it can also keep pests away and allow you to save some grocery money on buying herbs that you don’t use all the time.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
