How To Make Windows Look Bigger In Destin

October 13, 2022

Windows come in various sizes, and there may be times an otherwise great Destin residence has windows that seem just aren’t adequate for its rooms. Although you are able to undertake some pricey refurbishments to enlarge small windows, a handful of simple interior changes will create the appearance of larger windows. All you need is the ideal window treatments to make small windows look bigger in Destin.

Utilize Curtains With Interior Shutters Or Shades

You don't usually need an extra window treatment when utilizing multi-functional interior shutters or top-notch window shades to give you privacy and light control. With that being known, when you would like to make windows look bigger in Destin, incorporating curtains with shutters or shades is a smart choice. Layers create depth and the appearance of additional space. And curtains do a great job of masking the exact size of a window.

The manner in which you hang curtains is able to make a small window look more substantial. If you want to make a window appear taller, install the curtain rod a bit higher than the window and add floor-length curtains. If you want to make a window seem wider, employ a hanging rod a bit wider than the window on each side and wide fabric panels. These approaches dupe the mind into perceiving a window is larger than it actually is, and the added size of the curtains is able to help a smaller-scale window appear more appropriate for the room. 

Select A Broad Interior Shutter Frame To Act As The Window’s Trim

You can also make a window look bigger by using trim or wider trim. Or solve two concerns at once and hang Polywood® shutters with a wider frame. Polywood louvered shutters provide the most command over exterior light and privacy of any type of window covering. They even feature a patented system of insulation that prevents temperature transfer and allows your windows to be better at conserving energy. You might incorporate Polywood shutters to benefit from these convenient characteristics and select a wider shutter frame to make a small window appear bigger.

Try Striped Window Shades To Modify The Look Of The Window

Chances are you’ve heard that donning vertical stripes will make you seem taller. This also works for window treatments. Installing window shades with vertical stripes or a similar pattern on more compact windows draws the eye upward and provides the impression of a lengthier window, and horizontal stripes make a window seem broader. But if you’re not big on stripes, you can also consider a noticeable floral or abstract print to draw the eye and make small windows look bigger in Destin.

Install White Polywood Shutters That Stand Out On Walls Of Different Colors

This trick makes sense for walls that are brightly or darkly painted. White Polywood shutters against a rich color make a striking contrast that draws the eye to your window. The darker the wall color, the more the wall appears to recede, and the more substantial your white window frame appears.
