To many homeowners, window walls are some of the most beautiful windows there are. They make scenic views more enchanting. They let you be at one with nature whatever the weather, share breakfasts with the morning sun and dine under the stars and the moon. They can magically make small areas appear roomier and invite you to extend your gaze beyond the walls of your home.
That said, you can still make better use of large windows. Here are some ideas from the experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln:
- Install an Anti-Glare Desk
Oversized windows are great for home offices because they promote productivity. However, direct sunlight can sometimes do more harm than good. To work without worrying about glare, use a dark-colored desktop material. It will absorb more energy from the sun, helping you create an environment that’s perfect for working.
- Outfit With a Daybed
Do you want one of those box bay windows to expand your living space? Add a huge daybed where you can curl up or nap with a sweeping panorama as your backdrop. If you’re concerned about sun damage, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® Smart-Sun™ glass can filter out most of the ultraviolet (UV) radiation that passes through your windows.
- Nurture a Mini-Garden
Window walls are friendly to those with a green thumb and sun-loving plants. Whether you want to decorate your space with ornamentals or grow your own herbs, you just need a large, operating window for your potted garden.
- Make the Frames Disappear
Making your big windows “vanish” as much as possible turns them into transparent barriers between you and the outside world. This design technique is emblematic of the Miesian Modern architecture. Apart from painting the interior frames, sashes and trim with the wall color, installing Renewal by Andersen windows is another way to pull it off. Made of incredibly strong Fibrex® material, our products feature narrow framing to provide more glass area without sacrificing durability.
