Beautiful Ideas to Give Your Glass Windows an Extra Touch

As the cliché goes, the eyes are the windows to one’s soul. As for windows, it is the eyes to one’s house. Sliding glass windows come as an efficient way of accessing outdoor view and allowing some privacy when you need it. Having glass windows need not mean having a dull view. Your window additions should not negate the function of the sliding glass windows. You certainly don’t want to obstruct your lovely yard or deck view.

Lots of options can be overwhelming so in this article, we have listed some trending ideas for your glass windows.

  • Vertical Blinds

Popularly known as the most affordable means of controlling light into the room, vertical blinds come in a variety of colors and materials that you can choose from. Although neutral colors are the most common, vertical blinds that are richly colored will make the glass windows appear as a focal point in the house.

Common colors include black, white, dark or light grey. However, if you prefer your blinds to look prominent, choose a color that will stand out against the call. Blue is the latest trending color in the window treatment industry. Some people have already ventured using blue in different hues such as navy, teal, or aquamarine.

If you feel like being a tech-savvy, then remote-controlled blinds are for you. Going high-tech doesn’t mean that your glass windows would appear stark and uninviting. To cozy up your windows, layering fabrics with high thread count may come in handy.

Patterns that you choose impact not only how the glass windows appear but also the way you feel about incorporating your own fashion sense in it.

  • Luxury Fabrics and Lavish Embellishments

When it is a luxurious ambiance that you want to achieve, then fabrics of silk, velvet, and fur come into play. When the overall design leans toward royalty, you may also consider using sparkling crystal beads, beaded tassels and lavish embellishment on the trimmings of the fabric used in your glass windows.

Silk panels instantly wake up a dull room. It comes as embroidered, plaid, or in jacquard paisley designs.

  • Organic Materials
