A well-placed window can create an interesting and aesthetically pleasing focal point of a room, but when a window placed in an awkward position presents a design problem difficult to address. Before giving up on your awkward window and investing in replacement windows, there are a few things you can try to rectify the issue:
Arrange Furniture Strategically
Windows that aren’t centered properly can create an eyesore that makes the living space look off-putting and unbalanced. You can still make the most out of these windows by being strategic about where you position your furniture. For example, try placing a small lounge chair in front of the window to “fill” the space and turn the attention away from the window itself.
If you have awkward gaps between your windows, place artwork in those places to distract from the empty space. While window replacement is always an option, there are many tricks you can try before you resort to that.
Give Corner Windows a Function
Make the most out of your corner windows by making them functional. The area around the corner window is the ideal place to set up your home office, as the table you’ll be installing can help stabilize visual weight. Alternatively, setting up a small lounge area, complete with a small table, plugs in the negative space surrounding the corner.
Make Use of Curtains and Shutters
Finally, installing large curtains or shutters to cover up the awkwardly placed windows is an effective way to keep the visuals symmetrical. This is ideal for off-set windows because window treatments can give the windows added depth.
