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.

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."
