5 Ways To Make The Most Of A Sunny Window

Last updated on February 1st, 2022

If your home is blessed with a nice, sunny window, you’re definitely in for a treat with your window setting the mood for the entire home.  But it’s important that you put this blessing to perfect use, so that you make the most of the sunlight making its way into your home. And that’s when it starts to seem like a challenge!

If you find yourself in a similar situation and are looking for some decor inspiration, here are a few ideas to help you make the decision.

1. Perk-up your work-from-home space

Transform the sunniest window in your home into a glorious work-from-home desk. Try to be minimalistic with this space and keep it super-organized for a truly Zen feeling that helps you focus and stay calm as you work. Be sure to perk it up some pretty greens!

2. Add some drama with contrasting black walls

Give your sunny window a totally modern take by giving the walls around it a stark black color. Not only does the sunlight streaming in tone down the dark walls, but the deep black from the walls also helps tone down the bold sunlight. So, are you ready to turn your window into a Scandinavian show-stopper?

3. Go all out with plants

Show off your green thumb by turning your sunny window into a lush, green window scape. Go completely overboard with your succulents, flowering plants, and crotons. And don’t forget to add variety to the scene with hanging planters, creating the prettiest curtain in green!

4. Give yourself some cozy me-space

There’s nothing like curling up with your favorite book while the sun shines down on you. Not to mention, getting a chance to watch the world go by, every time you look up from your book. Turn your sunny window space into a cozy, inviting space with a comfortable chair, a pouf, a throw pillow (or two), and a subtle hint of green. And you’ll see, it won’t just be the humans in your home who’ll lounge in this beautiful spot.  

5. Build a proper window nook

If you are lucky enough to have a sunny window by an empty corner, you can build yourself a classic, stunning window seat. If you’re good with DIY home improvement stuff, you can even finish it inexpensively.  Time to transform your routine cup of coffee into something truly delightful with sunlight filling you up with endorphins!

Happy decorating, everyone!
