Tips on Making the Most Out of Sunny Windows

Sunny windows are an asset. They can energize the space, draw the eye and easily be a room’s focal point. To make the most of them, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis recommends the tips below.

Tips on Making the Most Out of Sunny Windows

Place Furniture in the Adjacent Space

The area near a sunny window should never be a lonely place. The airy spot can be a perfect location for eating, working, reading, entertaining and resting. When there is enough floor space to be used, experienced window installation companies would advise you to add some furniture to increase its utility.

Paint Interior Trim Black

Sometimes, the brightness of a sunny window can be too harsh. To offset the abundant illumination, choose a black casing.

Dark trim acts as a counterbalance to generous daylight coming from energy-efficient windows. The color black can also accentuate the view, highlight the window height, produce an illusion of more architecture and de-emphasize less attractive interior details.

Add Sun-Loving Plants

Sunlight is food for plants, so take advantage of generous daylighting by displaying stunning greenery by the window. Consider cultivating your own herbs and edibles in your kitchen, too. If your space lacks a punch of color, grow flowering plants and other ornamentals to bring more life to your home. Renewal by Andersen of Memphis attests that these natural accents also help purify the usually polluted indoor air.

Cover With a Soft Fabric

A well-thought-out window treatment is another solution to harsh sunlight. Hang gauzy curtains to soften the admission of light without totally blocking the sun. Solar screen shades can also eliminate glare without ruining the view.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
