Sometimes, there’s no better interior décor than Mother Nature. In Her unique ways, she can add life to the scenery and make your home more livable from dusk to dawn.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Orange County shares some advice to incorporate nature into your home design using windows:
1. Have a Window Wall
The best way to bring nature in is by framing it with massive picture windows. Replace the walls that face outdoor views that take your breath away with oversized glass units, and not those oriented in cul-de-sacs. Capturing pieces of the outside world creates an illusion of space; even the tiniest of rooms would seem larger when at one with the landscape.
2. Use Corner Windows
Apart from floor-to-ceiling windows, corner glass units can make you feel outside while you’re inside. With sleek frames, they forge a seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Corner windows bend the mind and panoramic take snapshots of your backyard topographies, fooling the eye that your surrounding terrain surrounds you closer.
3. Add Shapely Transoms
Transoms are glass units installed at the top of your regular windows and doors to produce larger outdoor views. They usually come in rectangles, but you can pick unorthodox shapes to frame splinters of nature in artistic ways. Of all our specialty windows, the pentagon and the round-top are the two you should strongly consider. The former lends more interest to your space with its subtle peak, while the latter makes your rooms sexier with its curvy crest.
4. Lose the Pediment
The pediment is the triangular upper part of your front façade, usually surmounting a portico. It’s generally made from a solid material, making it one of the most underutilized areas for outdoor viewing. If you make the wall vanish in favor of glass, you’d have a convenient peek of the blue or starry sky.
