Floor-to-Ceiling Windows: Design Ideas

Minimize Distractions

When you have a view that is worth capturing with floor-to-ceiling windows, you’ll want to emphasize it as much as possible, and that means minimizing distractions around it. Whether you choose to install a single window or several windows mulled together spanning two or more walls, simple window treatments such as thick blackout curtains or retractable Roman shades work best.

You might be worried that the increased amount of sunlight will make the room uncomfortably hot and will cause your furnishings to fade. With Renewal by Andersen replacement windows, this is not a concern. Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages are designed to block unwanted infrared and UV rays, which are responsible for heat transfer and furniture fading, respectively. Our High-Performance Low-E4 Sun™ glass package features a special tint coating that helps minimize the amount of glare without darkening the room.

Combine Window Styles

Picture windows are the first thing that comes to most homeowners’ minds when discussing window styles that maximize beautiful views. Featuring slim frames and a large glass area, a picture window is ideal for capturing views. The only downside of picture windows is that they can’t be opened, which means they don’t provide any ventilation. Fortunately, you can get around this problem by installing smaller operable windows on either side of the picture window. Double-hung, casement and sliding windows are all good options.

Furniture Placement

Make sure your furniture doesn’t block the view. Allow some space between the windows and the seat backs of any adjacent chairs or sofas to create a comfortable sitting area, while still allowing a full view.
