Tall, slim windows can present a design challenge because they leave a lot of empty wall space. By incorporating a few creative design tips, however, you can maximize their potential and use them to enhance both the interior and exterior of your home.
Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, your premier local window company, explains how to make the most of tall, narrow replacement windows.
You can draw visual attention to your tall, narrow window by placing potted plants in the area. This adds lush greenery to the room, helping connect your indoor and outdoor spaces. Rooms with a tall, narrow window can feel a bit dark, but adding plant life makes the room feel vibrant, airy and open.
Blinds and Shades
Window replacement experts advise enhancing your tall, slim windows with blinds made of wood or faux wood. One-inch woods, in particular, are favorable because of their minimal profile and wood grain beauty. If you have a particularly tall window, consider motorized shades for enhanced convenience. These shades will lend your interior a modern look that will be sure to leave an impression on your guests.
The right drapery can lend a majestic effect to your tall, slim windows. Keep the scale of the room in mind when choosing window treatments. A small curtain rod could disappear at the top of a very tall window, so consider installing larger drapery hardware and big pleats instead.
