If you have invested in gorgeous new windows, you want to make sure that they are seen. In fact, you might even want to make them a focal point of a room or your entire time. This is especially true if your windows are significant upgrades on a home that is a work in progress, or if your home is otherwise fairly plain. Check out these ways to make sure that your new windows are the focal point of any room they are in.
Choose a Bay Window or a Bow Window
The first step in making your new windows focal points is choosing windows that are worthy of being focal points. Bay and bow windows are great choices. When they are seen from inside the home, you get a panoramic view of what is happening outside. They also result in having more working space in the room they are installed in. Outside, they offer a unique architectural feature that can make your house stand out on the block.
Work with a Garden Window
If you are adding windows in your kitchen, or in a space that lies between your kitchen and other rooms in your house, a garden window might be a great choice. They are similar to bow windows and bay windows because they jut out of the house. However, they are rectangle in shape and have glass both on the top and bottom. You can put shelves in them to grow herbs or add art that will help make it a focal point of the room.
Consider a Uniquely Shaped Window
You likely wouldn’t want oddly shaped windows throughout your home, but adding a circle or oval window can be a great way to add a focal point. You could put this over the front door, or you could put it in a hallway. You could even add unique coloring, such as stained glass, to make it really pop.
Install Unique Colors
Most homeowners choose either fiberglass windows or vinyl windows. Either material can be made in just about any color you want. Remember that frame colors are more obvious outside your home than in, so if you have limited space outside to create a focal point, unique window frame colors could be an option for you.
