Renewal by Andersen® believes in how versatile our replacement windows are when it comes to personalization. But, this is only half the story. Your choice of decor and your windows go together in creating interior design that truly reflects your style, taste and personality. Here are some examples of how windows accentuate indoor decor:
Specialty Window Shapes
Specialty windows are fixed windows similar to picture windows, but come in shapes that are different from the usual four-sided windows. They may be full or half circles, triangles or many kinds of polygons. Specialty windows are a unique piece either by themselves or when combined with other window styles, but they’re also great as accent pieces. Popular styles include porthole-style windows that add authenticity to nautical-themed decor and triangular windows in a gable-facing, converted attic space. We have to remind you, however, that we only work with existing wall openings.
The additional space created by bay and bow windows often gets turned into window seats, which can influence the decor that you have in the room. With the added seating, you can get rid of some of the extraneous seats and free up some floor space, which you can allocate for bigger furniture, or just enjoy the freedom of a more spacious room. You can also choose window seat upholstery or cushions that match the rest of the room.
Daylighting is the practice of letting more natural light into your home. It has its practical benefits, such as reduced reliance on daytime artificial lighting (resulting in some energy savings) and – as many studies have proven – stress reduction through regulated sleep times.
Your choice of window decor can be influenced by daylighting since you may want to control the amount of light you want to let into your home at certain times. Maybe you need to sleep at certain times during the day, so you may need to choose thick curtains for your windows.
Conversely, if you want to maximize the reflected light, you may need to choose decor with light colors. Whatever your choice of decor is, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass will help keep your colors vibrant thanks to its ultraviolet-blocking capabilities.
