There are lots of things you can do to spice up your residential replacement windows, and make them fit your house and your overall style and personality. One thing most people do soon after installation is cover the windows with some treatment. You can put the old window coverings up or get new ones that suit the new windows better. There are a number of other things you can do as well. Here are a few options to consider.
Consider Stained Glass For Certain Windows
There might be specific windows that you want to stand out in your house. You might want to put a stained-glass window in that area. If there’s a window above the front door, for example, you want to get something that stands out, both from the inside and outside. Stained glass can be an excellent option. That can also be a good thing for your home’s appearance and the impact it makes from the curb.
Place Plants Around The Window
Some windows bring in lots of natural light, and your plants will love that. Consider getting a plant stand to place around that window and you can dress the window in a way that the plants will also love. You get fresh air when you open the windows and when you place plants in the home, they will help clean the air in the house, even when the windows are closed.
Hang Lace Curtains For Effect
There are plenty of window coverings options to consider, but if you want your windows to look dressy and classic, lace curtains might be a nice effect. These curtains will filter the light, but will also allow you to get a classy look in the room. You aren’t going to completely block light out, but it won’t be as bright, which might be what you want for that space.
Frost The Glass
Frosted glass has a lovely appeal to it and it can dress the window nicely. This windowed effect is especially nice for the rooms in which you want privacy on a regular basis, like the bathroom. You can’t see through the window, but you still get the light you wish to into the space.
Put Mirrors Around The Window Bank
If you want your room to look larger than it already does, consider placing mirrors around the window bank you have just installed. You will get more natural light into the space, which will make it look larger and more open, but you will be reflecting that light around the room, making it more welcoming for anyone who comes into the house.
When you are ready for residential replacement windows, you will want a lot of things from them, like energy efficiency, natural light, and much more. You will also want to start thinking about how you will dress the windows. That might mean doing something upfront or after the windows are installed.
