The living room is one of the most important rooms in any home. It’s a place where you entertain guests, relax after a long day, and spend time with your family. Because it’s an activity area, it should always be well lit and feel more open.
Renewal by Andersen® of Western New York can help brighten up your living room with the following design ideas:
1. Use large windows for more natural light.
Window types such as picture, bay, and bow have more glass area compared with casement windows in Buffalo, NY. These windows highlight the scenery outside your home and let a lot of light in. They can also create the illusion of a bigger room.
2. Combine several window types for a unique look.
Sometimes, one window isn’t enough to brighten a room. Bay and bow windows use a combination of double-hung, casement, or picture windows for more scenic views. These windows also create more space for your living room.
3. Install floor-to-ceiling windows.
If you really want to go bold with your windows, tall and slim picture windows can bring the outdoors in. When your living room is facing a scenic view, these windows can liven up another wise-unremarkable room.
4. Choose windows with less or no grilles.
You can always go for grille less windows such as picture, bay, and bow. Some windows also have thinner frames for optimum glass area.
There are endless ideas on how you can style your living room. Traditional windows such as casement and double-hung can accentuate the classic furniture in your room. You can also use bay and bow windows for added space. Picture windows are best used to frame scenic outdoor views.
