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.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
