Simple Ways to Hide a Bad Window View

Sometimes, a wonderful set of sliding patio doors is just not enough to compensate for an unpleasant view. On top of that, no matter how much homeowners try, they cannot control what appears outside of their windows.

There are ways you can improve an unsightly view. In the end, all homeowners deserve to see a terrific and fresh sight all from the comforts of their owns houses.

Use Barriers

The simplest way to eliminate a bad view is to put up a barrier. Now, you can get creative with this one. For starters, use plants. A big vase of a monstera indoor plant can distract you from looking outside the windows. With its big and detailed leaves, this green addition will surely freshen up the scene. Hanging plants and other potted plants like Snake plants, English Ivy and Pothos are good additions, too.

Another way to create a barrier is by using curtains. Sheer curtains, for instance, can hide the sight outside without blocking the sunlight in your room. 

Re-arrange Your Things

If you do not feel like planting and hanging curtains, you can simply make use of the things you currently have.

Start by putting a console table against your window and placing picture frames. With a table full of memories, you can simply reminisce instead of looking outside. Furthermore, you can also put up a big mirror beside your window to create an illusion and redirect the attention to a more pleasant one.

Add Decor

Since we are being artistic, why not add some ornaments and striking mobiles over the window? Big and colorful dream catchers will surely add a bohemian look to your space. Moreover, you can create a macramé mobile that can compliment your beautiful French doors.

With these simple ways, you can now enjoy staying at home and admiring your view. To complete the experience, turn to Renewal by AndersenⓇ of St. Louis for top tier windows and doors.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
