3 Ways to Accent Large Living Room Windows available at JC Licht

Large living room windows make the space feel more open and uplifting. Whether you look out into the suburbs or a busy downtown street, few things make your Chicago home more inviting than oversize windows. If you've got them, flaunt them using these ideas from the designers at JC Licht.

Delight in the Details

Less can be more when working with large windows in your living room. Expansive windows can be attention-grabbing without being fussy. When privacy is not on your priority list, consider dressing your windows with a cornice or valance and decorating the sill. There's nothing like a sunny windowsill to make your favorite houseplants happy. 

Beautiful hardware is another ideal accent for large living room windows. Exquisite custom drapery practically begs for equally impressive hardware. Choose a premium finish that complements the room's other metal or wood elements, and add decorative finials for some extra panache. 

The Sky's The Limit

Vertical blinds and large living room windows go together like peanut butter and jelly. Opening to the side means the manual operation is always manageable, despite their considerable size. Vertical lines keep the eye moving upward, making your ceilings appear higher, and who doesn't enjoy a more spacious-looking home? A myriad of color, texture, and material options give you the freedom to draw attention to your large living room windows in countless ways. Sheer vanes are airy and delicate, while aluminum vertical blinds have a more commanding presence. 

Gliding window panels are an elegant alternative to traditional vertical blinds. Their sleek aesthetic is ideally suited to contemporary or minimalist decor. These vertical blinds create a stunning backdrop for any room when closed but stack tightly when open so you can enjoy a broader view of the outdoors. The addition of an attractive top treatment is the icing on the cake.

Throw Some Shade

Solar shades wear many hats in the window treatments world. They provide outstanding protection from UV damage, significantly decrease glare, and prevent heat from passing through to keep your home cool and comfortable. Did we mention that solar shades do all this while providing daytime privacy and a great view? 

Woven shades bring a one-of-a-kind personality and texture to your large living room windows. They're also lightweight, making them an excellent solution for more expansive windows. Leave your woven shades unlined for gently diffused natural light and exceptional UV protection. A light-filtering liner will give you more control and privacy and provide a cleaner appearance from the outside.
