Making the Most of Sunny Windows

Sunny windows can instantly set the mood for your room and the entirety of your home. So, why not make the most of them? Here’s how to improve their functionality.

Sunny Windows

  • Pair them with black. It may not be something that you would expect, but pairing your windows with a black wall is a great idea. Experts say that this gives off the Scandinavian aesthetics, which hold minimalism to a high standard.

  • Soften the lights. Although natural illumination is an advantage, too much daylighting can be bad for you as this can affect the way you live. It can distract you from watching television, eating dinner or even doing activities in your living space. It can also be too much for your eyes, so make certain that you’re able to tone down the brightness by using drapes with a neutral shade that can complement your windows.

  • Grow window plants. While you’re making home remodeling decisions, consider getting garden windows for your kitchen or bedroom as it is a great solution for making the most of natural light. Succulents like aloe vera and cacti are good indoor plants, and can even work as dehumidifiers in your bedroom. You can do the same in the kitchen by growing herbs, such as oregano and basil.

  • Add a breakfast nook. This can be as simple as adding a two-chaired table in the perfect spot, which can help you feel more energized as you start your day. Sunlight is said to provide endorphins, and if your sunny windows help lighten the mood, you’ll feel more motivated to take on your daily activities.

"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!!"
