Get the Most Out of Your Windows

Four Tips & Tricks

Fall is in full swing, and the holidays are well on their way! In addition to all of the other wonderful things that the end of the year brings with it, that means more time with friends and family visiting your home. For many Tidewater homeowners, this time of year makes us start thinking about simple ways to bring the very best out of the features in our home. That includes your windows.

Even if you’re happy with the windows that you currently have, it’s natural to wonder what you can do to make them look bigger or more elegant. As the Tidewater area’s exclusive source for Renewal by Andersen® windows, Mr. Rogers Windows knows a thing or two about how to make your windows look better than ever! Read on to learn our favorite tips and tricks for getting the most out of your windows.

  1. Invest in a Window Treatment: If you’ve got space in the budget, nothing looks more elegant than a custom window treatment! High-quality window treatments are a style choice that stand the test of time. Choose a timeless pattern for your window treatment in colors that complement the room it will be in. Your guests are sure to be awed!
  2. Choose Floor-Length Curtains: Adding long curtains to your existing windows is a simple, budget-friendly way to create the appearance of bigger windows. Not only do floor-length drapes add timeless beauty to the look of your windows, but they also lead the eye downward, which tricks your guests into thinking your windows are larger than they are.
  3. Paint a Border Around Your Window: Especially in rooms that are painted a color other than white, adding a white border around your window automatically makes the room look brighter by catching and reflecting natural light. Adding thickness around your windows will also make the room appear larger.
  4. Get Creative With Curtain Rods: There are a lot of things you can do with your curtain rod to create the appearance of larger windows. Hanging the rod nearer to the ceiling, using one that overhangs the window, and using a single long curtain rod for the same window can all play with perspective to make your windows appear larger than they are.

Of course, it’s possible that it’s time to replace your windows altogether.
