Windows as Design Elements: Transforming Your Home

They come in squares, rectangles, circles, and just about any other shape you can imagine—windows bring natural light into our homes and help keep us warm and cozy. However, windows are so much more than their functional purpose. Windows are often an unsung and unused design element that can transform your home. If you’re looking to add visual intrigue and interest, take a look at all the wonderful ways windows can revolutionize the interior and exterior of your home.

A Room With a View

As more and more people transition to work from home, we’re starting to spend more time indoors and away from the beauty of nature. Windows let us view the beauty of the outside world from the inside so that we can appreciate the outside world. But you don’t want to put your windows just anywhere. If you have a particularly beautiful part of your yard or a nice vista you’d like to admire, you can install a window to highlight that area. For example, if the south side of your house faces a beach, you may want to put a large bay window on that south wall. Think about your window as a frame for a painting and the view as the painting itself.

Break Up the Boring

A room without a window feels stiff, uninviting, and boring. Windows are a great way to add life to a room and break up the boring space of endless walls. This also applies to the exterior of your home. Placing your windows on large, blank exterior walls can add dimension and intrigue to your home. Not only does this look better on an aesthetic level, but it also boosts the curb appeal of your home. The first thing a home buyer is going to see is your exterior, after all.

Highlight With Light

Are there any rooms in your home that you want to highlight? Maybe you have a living room full of beautiful decorations that you want to show off, or maybe you have a gorgeous kitchen you worked hard to design. Strategically placing your windows allows light to come through and highlight the areas of your home you want to call attention to. It helps to think of your window’s function as being similar to a spotlight on a stage. You don’t have to use one large window either; placing two or more double-hung windows together adds visual intrigue while breaking up the space.
