How to Maximize a View Using Windows

There’s no reason you have to obscure your view of the outdoors by installing cumbersome window treatments just to get a bit of privacy, especially if you live in a beautiful location. By investing in new patio doors and windows in different sizes, you can still enjoy a stunning outdoor view without sacrificing your privacy. 


Here’s how you can capture a view using windows. 

Larger Windows

Brighten and open up your home using large windows. They will also enhance a room’s atmosphere and create a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor space. Consider high windows if privacy is a concern. A transom window over an existing window can prevent your home from feeling cramped. 

Unobstructed Views

Homes looking out on scenic views usually feature large windows on one side, transforming the living space into an observation deck. This effect can be enhanced with high, vaulted ceilings. However, even if you have a smaller home with shorter ceilings, there are still ways you can maximize your view.

Patio doors, which feature expansive glass areas, are a great option. Their double panel configuration provides a more expansive view than two large windows. Consider specialty windows if patio doors don’t work for you. They are offered in unique shapes and can fit into your home’s architecture. For quality specialty windows and entry doors, choose Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio. 

Right Frame Material and Finish

The window frame material and finish can further enhance the beauty of your landscape. The shape of the window can also draw more attention to the view that you want to emphasize. For instance, an octagonal picture window may work well with a mountain. Walk around your property and take note of the views you wish to capture.
