Create Clear Views

• Enlarge Your Windows – Many homeowners are upgrading to bigger windows or trading several small windows for one large one. Increasing the size of your windows will widen the range of your view significantly.

• Accessorize – Not all rooms in a home look out onto a pleasant view. Hanging a fun poster or a pretty painting on the wall will draw the eye away from the window. Wall mirrors are also ideal for decorating a space with small windows because they provide the illusion of depth and added dimension. Consider hanging two groupings of wall mirrors on opposite walls, so that they reflect light and bounce it back across the room.

• Sheers – One of the most stylish and utilitarian ways to dress up your view is with window sheers.  However, not all sheers offer the same visibility. For example, an irregular, undulating pattern, known as the moiré effect, can occur with some sheer window treatments.

• Landscaping – Many homeowners don't give much thought to their landscaping, but a good design can add significantly to the view from the inside of your house. Start by getting your lawn in shape. A patchy lawn takes away from the home's overall appearance.
