Four Ways to Create a Beautiful and Relaxing View Just Outside Your Window

Utterly beautiful and artistic scenery is both a blessing and a gift that is a rare sight nowadays. With the usually chaotic scene, either coming from the busy metropolis where most homes are, traffic crowds the view through your home’s windows. It might also come from the disastrous setup of your backyard, and you should be able to see a sight that is relaxing and not distressing.

If you want to have a beautiful and relaxing view right through your window, you need to remember some essential things. So what are the things that can help you in getting a surreal window view? Here are just some helpful ways to help you turn your simple window gazing into a stress relief and surreal experience that you’ll undoubtedly love.

Go for Simple/Minimalist Window Designs

So, you may ask, “Why?” This is because a window with a minimalist design diverts your view through the window, not around it. Your attention will be on the center because nothing is distracting or catching your attention from the sides of the windows. Just like too many lines, shapes, and colors can overstimulate your mind. A simple and organized space can do wonders for your brain (not to mention your eyes).

Windows that have extravagant designs, excessive decorations or curtains with eye-catching colors can be too much for the eyes and even the brain to process. Using a minimalist or simple design in your window will help you gain a clear view of what’s outside, while also giving your mind the much-needed space it needs.

Lighting Truly Matters

The amount of magic that light can do to the quality of the view through your window will surprise you. Proper use of light and the different colors and shades, will uplift the ambiance of the room. Thus making the viewing through your windows in the evening much more enjoyable experience that can be relaxing and soothing to the eyes. In the same principle, lights of different colors can be too much to your eyes that can even make them feel sore. It’s essential to pick hues that are pleasant to the eyes that way when you need to de-stress, you can look through your window, appreciate the warm or cool lighting you’ve set up, and feel instantly relaxed.

Be in One with Nature

If you want a beautiful view through your window, you have to take note that plants play a significant role in adding to the aesthetic quality. Flowers, plants, and trees add to the natural color of the view. Make sure to mix up the dominating green color of the leaves with the color brown from the branches and the white, pink, orange, yellow, and red hues from the flowers.

They will surely be relaxing to look at, and it’s also an environmental-friendly alternative compared to the use of plastic ornaments. Working these together with creative lighting, the plants can do a fantastic job in turning a simple window view into a picturesque sight. It’s like a real-life still-life art, now that’s a beauty!

Different Room, Different View

Not every room in the house should have the same accent when it comes to the view through the window. For example, take into account the look through the window from the living room. Since it’s a living room, you would want to feel somewhat free, so the place should be spacious. Using fewer curtains and allowing more sunlight to enter the room is a great way to improve the view.

As for your bedroom that needs a certain degree of privacy, instead of using blinds that obstruct the view, you can use roller shades along with tasteful curtains to add an aesthetic feature while still having that sense of privacy you need.

After a long day from work, we all look forward to coming home, unwinding, and forgetting about our worries. We all anticipate that time when we can finally put our feet up on the table, drink a cup of coffee, and listen to some soothing tunes. What would be the icing on this cake? Looking outside the window and seeing that beautiful and relaxing view just a few feet away from you! Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
