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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
