Not every home will have all of your favorite features. It is especially true if you live in a condominium home in a large city or just couldn’t afford the neighborhood of your dream home. You might end up with some unique configuration that you don’t love or a view out your windows or balcony that is less than desirable. So, what can you attempt to mitigate the lack of views from your home to assist you in making the most out of your living space to enjoy life in your current home?

Plants. 

Houseplants remain a great way to improve the view from your windows or balcony. Hang a window box or grow a vine up a trellis on your balcony to help distract you from the brick wall across the alley or dumpster down below. Place indoor trees near your windows or between windows and furniture so you when you look toward the light you see beautiful and uplifting greenery.

Wallpaper, Wall and Window Decals. 

An excellent way to liven up your space and draw attention away from the view out your windows is to introduce attractive wall coverings. If you like bright colors, try a creative pattern of wallpaper that attracts the eye. You might live in a city but wish you were closer to or had a view of nature. Luckily there are many wall-decals you can install that depict forests, beach scenes or open fields. If you merely want to cover up the view from your windows without losing daylight try patterned white or opaque window decals that add texture to your space without adding noise or stealing light away from your home.

Screens. 

There are many folding screens you can use to add structure and interest to a room that covers your windows without taking up too much space or blocking a lot of light. Find a natural wood carved screen, a bright white folding screen or a cloth screen in a pattern and color you find uplifting and turn that into your new view.

Creative Window Treatments. 

Finally, go with a good old window treatment. You can find tall opaque screens that cover your windows while letting in the light. Use curtains and beautiful drapery around your window or balcony doors to create intrigue and add to the design of your space.

A combination of some of all of the ideas above can readily help you transform your home and help you cope with a less than stellar view. Don’t overdo your cover-up and crowd your home but consider which tricks will best help you create the illusion of beauty out your windows to help you best enjoy your home.
