Not every homeowner is lucky enough to have an incredible view from their windows. But with the right considerations, you can actually turn that bad view into something better.
1. Use greenery to your advantage.When the view from your window is just a plain fence or wall, you can spruce things up with a bit of greenery. You can place a table in front of the windows to serve as a handy surface for potted herbs, plants or flowers, allowing you to create a lovely mini garden. This helps draw the eyes away from the bad view and onto the lively plants instead.
2. Put up an external trellis. This may seem a bit extreme, but if you want to completely hide the unsightly view from your windows – and you have extra space – you can have an external trellis built in front of them. You can use it to grow a nice flowering vine like jasmine or ivy. Aside from providing you with a lush view from your windows and ensuring greater privacy, this also helps dampen outdoor noise.
3. Hang plants outside. If an external trellis isn’t your style, you can go for hanging plants outside your home instead. Consider getting hanging plant brackets that swivel so there’s sufficient space between your windows and the plants. Instead of just seeing a wall of green outside your windows, you can enjoy a neat, garden-like view instead. What’s more, this allows a nice amount of natural light to stream into your home.
