Window walls are becoming a top trend in the realm of home design, and it’s easy to see why. It establishes this air of fluid transitional design, making your room look larger and letting more of the outdoors in.
Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses four window wall ideas to improve your seamless home design.
1. Pick an Energy-Efficient Window
To make the most out of your window wall, pick the energy-efficient kind. Because the actual glass panes of the window wall are large, it accounts more for how well your living space is insulated than other factors. Our Fibrex® frame windows have higher thermal transfer resistance, making it very energy-efficient compared with vinyl, wood, and aluminum. With this superior material, you’ll really make the most of your new window wall. Plus, our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options bounce infrared and UV rays, allowing clearer sunlight without its heat and corrosive potential.
2. Fill in The Negative Space
You probably freed up the stuff occupying the space of your window replacement, so there’s bound to be some negative space underneath. While it’s perfectly fine to keep it empty, we recommend filling it with something, preferably one appropriate for the overall design of the room. If it’s a bedroom, for example, you might want to fit a long dresser or a bookcase underneath the window wall. It provides a nice contrast to the outdoor view from the windows.
3. Make It a Vantage Point
Your window wall serves as a nice vantage point, giving you a glimpse of what’s going on outside. So why not take the step further and make that side of the wall your personal little observatory? No one’s stopping you from placing a small telescope in it; after all, floor-to-ceiling windows offer uninterrupted views that are perfect for stargazing. More than that, though, try moving your chairs and maybe a table closer to the window wall to create a nice venue for relaxation.
4. Curtains And Blinds
It’s tempting to leave your new replacement windows as it is, but don’t let the wide uninterrupted views stop you from adding a bit of flair to it. We’re talking about curtains and blinds, of course. For your bedrooms with window walls, choose curtains or blinds that match the interior decor of your living space. It’s a nice security feature, too.
