Design Tips for Using Windows to Capture Beautiful Views

If your home is surrounded by a beautiful view, then your windows should highlight it. There are ways to use windows to show off the fantastic scenery around your home.

Design Tips for Using Windows to Capture Beautiful Views

Use Large Picture Windows

The simplest and easiest way to highlight a great view is to simply use larger windows. We recommend using picture windows for this task. These windows are fixed so they can be made very large. A floor-to-ceiling picture window looks incredibly dramatic, and it is a wonderful way to bring the outdoors inside your home. Large picture windows also provide plenty of natural light, making the room feel more inviting.

Use Window Combinations

You can also use a combination of casement or sliding windows and glass patio doors to provide a panoramic view of the outdoors. Placing windows right next to your patio doors is a great way to highlight scenic views. Using windows and patio doors this way can make the transition between your interior and outdoor living space feel seamless.

Highlight Specific Outdoor Features

You can also use windows to highlight specific features of the outdoors. A window can act like a kind of picture frame. It can draw attention to a certain beautiful sight. If you plan on using a window this way, then make sure to use the right interior finish for the window. You should also think about the window shape you’ll use to frame the view.
