A sunny window can do wonders for your home’s interior. Apart from brightening up the room and creating a fresh ambience, it also comes with so much design potential that could further boost your home interior’s appeal. Whether you have bow or sliding windows, these tips will surely help you get the most of your sunny windows.
Dangle Some Succulents by the Window
Build your own terrarium and dangle your creations against the window. You can use glass vases or balls to contain succulents and let their beautiful mess show — dirt, moss, river rocks and all. Apart from adorning your window, they can make your interior look livelier and more interesting. Plus, the succulents would surely love getting all the sunshine they need to thrive.
Hang Curtains to Soften the Light
While sunny windows are nice to have in a room, there is one potential drawback that you might have to deal with — the room may be too bright for watching television or working on a laptop. This can make it difficult to focus on your task as you’ll likely be too busy shading your eyes or adjusting your screen to get rid of the glare. Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy solution to this — hang luxurious, gauzy curtains. White curtains are usually a good choice, but any neutral or toned-down shade will do the job.
Alternatively, you can switch to custom windows that can automatically provide shade when it turns too sunny. This will definitely cost more, but it can be ideal for you if you’re not keen on the idea of washing or cleaning curtains frequently.
Brighten Up Your Workspace
Whether your work-from-home setup is permanent or temporary, it’s important to create a work-conducive environment where you can be focused and productive. That sunny spot next to your window might just be the perfect workspace. Apart from ensuring adequate light for your tasks, natural lighting is also known to help boost one’s mood and productivity. Just make sure to keep the space organized and minimalistic so that it can also provide some calming effects.
Create a Breakfast Nook
Drink your coffee next to a sunny window for an instant pick-me-up. The morning light can be very magical and calming, so you might want to start your day with a good breakfast and some sunshine. If your window can offer you a view of the sunrise, that might just give you a good reason to get up early and have a good start each day.
Add a Window Seat
The classic, built-in look of a window seat can certainly beautify your interior. Depending on the type of seat you install, you can turn the space into a cozy dining area or relaxing place where you can have some quiet time. Don’t worry because you don’t need a lot of money to achieve this feature. You can find cheap furniture pieces, refurbish old ones or DIY your very own window seat.
Grow Your Favorite Herbs
Make sure you always have your favorite herbs by growing them on a sunny windowsill. This is a great spot to cultivate a mini herb garden that can provide you with the additional flavors you need when cooking. Wouldn’t it be fun and convenient to have basil, sage and oregano just a few feet away from your kitchen counters?
Turn the Space Into a Cozy Reading Corner
You only need a comfy chair and your sunny window to turn that little space into your favorite reading corner. You can also add a lamp so that you can continue until dusk. Some books are just that good, it’s hard to put them down, right?
