Smart Tips on Using Floor-to- Ceiling Windows

Smart Tips on Using Floor-to- Ceiling Windows

February 10, 2017

Making your windows run from the floor to the ceiling always adds architectural flair to your home. The tall, expansive glass would create a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. This is an ideal solution when you want to make your home look bigger, too. If you’re planning for replacement windows in Waukesha, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee can help. We share some ideas to maximize your floor-to-ceiling glass fixtures.



Put Serious Thought on Furniture

When placing pieces of furniture is necessary, put them several feet away from your full-height windows. This way, you can get the seating you need without necessarily getting it in the way of the view. However, when you have to put tables and/or chairs up against the large glass, choose sleek pieces. They would keep the obstruction to a minimum and even complement your oversized windows.

You can also opt for see-through or glass furniture. Glass and acrylic tables or chairs would enhance the airiness of your space. Their transparency would also create no blockage and allow the sun to bounce around.

Minimize Obstruction

One of the ways you can make the most of outdoor views is to get rid of anything that can block them. Skipping the grilles can ensure unobstructed views. Place no furniture or décor by the window, if possible, to capture as much of the outside world as you can. The empty space in front of the glass would frame the views with no interruption and make a huge difference. You can also design your room with a walking area along your large picture windows in Waukesha. Thoughtfully creating this “aisle” would keep the glass unobstructed despite regular foot traffic.

Decorate In-Between Spaces

Maximize the solid walls in between your floor-to-ceiling glass fixtures, too. Using these sandwiched areas would lend more interest and function to your space. For example, installing tall, multi-faceted shelving alongside a huge window would give purpose to an otherwise useless corner. The design idea should depend on the room. For your bedroom, putting a side table would be a nice touch. For your living room, hanging an artwork would add character to the bland, blank wall.

With countless treatment possibilities, having floor-to-ceiling windows offers many benefits. Whether you need unobstructed picture windows or large double hung window in Waukesha, Renewal by Andersen is a name you can trust.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
