Is it possible to obtain windows that provide beautiful views and ample daylighting without compromising your privacy? This is a question many homeowners investing in replacement windows struggle with. Fortunately, it can be done. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares some tips:
1. Choose an Unconventional Window Design
Don’t limit yourself to traditional window styles—be creative. A narrow window rising from the floor and continuing to the ceiling, for instance, can provide a stunning outdoor view without showing too much of what’s inside. At Renewal by Andersen, we can build custom windows to your exact specifications.
2. Install Window Films or Blinds
Window treatments give homeowners the power to control how much of their interior space is visible from the outside. Films come in different grades and patterns to cover the surface of the replacement windows. Roller blinds, on the other hand, can preserve a resident’s privacy by providing adequate concealment whenever necessary.
3. Consider the Louvered-Window Style
This design is perfect to regulate air and sunlight. You can use white translucent glass to address privacy issues. This window style also allows you to adjust the louvers to the angle that best suits you.
4. Invest in Exterior Screens
You can preserve your privacy by installing outdoor screens. A laser-cut divider with a leaf-like motif can create a dappled effect. It also allows ample daylight into your living space.
