Garden windows have been a unique staple in homes for centuries. Also known as greenhouse windows, a garden window consists of four window panes that protrude into your yard from your home. They allow more natural light to enter a room and give you a wider range of outdoor viewing. These three dimensional windows often have shelves to create the perfect garden window display to match your style. Here are some ideas of what to put in a garden window.
Take advantage of the added natural light these windows offer by creating an arrangement of plants for display. Decorative pots and planters can assist in creating the feel your want your room to have or add the pop of color you’ve been looking for. If your garden window rests above your kitchen sink, consider starting your own herb garden to use in your cooking. Remember to choose a non-crowded arrangement to prevent cluttering. You still want to be able to look at your outdoor garden through your window.
Organized kitchenware on open shelving is a modern way to add character to your kitchen. Use your garden window display as a contemporary storage space for your finest dishes. To show the personality of your kitchen, strategically place ornamental pieces that match your style or color scheme. Other garden window decorating ideas include using the shelving to hold recipe boxes and cookbooks or showing off your favorite coffee cups in a creative arrangement accented by natural light.
No matter the room your garden window is located, memorabilia and heirlooms are always great decorations. Protect pieces passed down through your family by keeping them high up on the shelf for display. Place photo frames on the shelving to fill with pictures of your family or proudly present your child’s clay creation from art class at school. Crystals and other clear objects that sparkle also create beautiful arrangements overlooking your garden.
Unlike other design aspects of your house, garden windows allow an unlimited amount of redesigns throughout the seasons, holidays and changing trends.
