How to Make the Most of a Sunny Window in Your Home

A bright, sun-filled window is a wonderful addition to your living space. However, deciding exactly what to do with it can be quite the challenge. If you’re still on the fence, finding the perfect inspiration to come your way, here are several ideas from a windows installer that may help you decide.

Sunny Window

Soften the light: While a sunny window can set the mood for a room, there’s one particular drawback that can’t be missed – it’s sunny. Day-to-day activities like watching television or reading the newspaper increase in difficulty when you’re too busy shading your eyes from the glimmering sunbeam. To tone down the brightness, install gauzy and neutral-colored curtains perfectly sized to the window.

Pair with black: Your brilliant windows with an ink-black wall makes a modern-day pairing. Deep black shades not only subdue the bold sunlight, but also create a show-stopper of a living room. This particular look is perfect if you want to bask in the warmth and glow of the sun through energy-efficient windows, but hate the washed-out wall-white décor that is popular among homeowners today.

Display dramatic greenery: There’s no better place to hand and showcase your well-loved plants than from a sunny window. Picture lovely pothos leaves trailing towards the ground, beaming with natural daylight, making your interior space feel like a glasshouse. For plant lovers, there’s nothing more ideal than having yet another opportunity to show off foliage.

Build a breakfast nook: If you’re blessed with an expansive, sunny window smoldering into a vacant corner, you can take advantage of the natural light by building a breakfast nook. A small but stylish two-chaired table in the cozy spot can perk up your morning routine and make it a memorable experience rather than a dull routine.

"I had my mobile home changed out because of the double windows letting in condensation after 22 years. Andersen came in and changed out a “breezy” door into a sliding window that is completely awesome. My bathroom windows are really nice, too nice for curtains. These are very high quality windows. The associates worked with me continuing to let me know how the process was going. The staff and installers were very quick and clean-up was nice. They actually pulled in to do extras to make the process easier."

"We've had a great experience working with Renewal by Andersen. Our home was long overdue for new windows and doors. We had put it off far too long as we were very nervous about the doing such a big renovation. However, every step of the way the folks at Renewal made the process simple, stress free, and affordable. From the moment Brent walked in to talk options and quotes to when Scott and Cameron completed the install everyone was friendly, professional and easy to communicate with. If you're looking for windows and/or doors, I'd recommend starting here!"
