We’re not specifically in the home décor niche. However, we’ve seen clients enhance their new windows and siding with a multitude of decorations for better aesthetics. One trend we’ve seen is the addition of window boxes. Homeowners typically include this after being awed by the inclusion of new windows and trim.
Popular Designs for Window Boxes
1. Add Long Plants
2. Select Contrasting Plant Colors
Select plants and flowers that contrast against the exterior’s backdrop. If the siding is a neutral color like gray, then use bright-colored flowers like geraniums, sunflowers, violets, or any flowers containing colors of the rainbow. Similarly, if you have a bold siding color like crimson red, then aim for a neutral hue for the flowers, such as orchids or white roses.
3. Decorate the Window Box
The window box itself can serve as the focal point. For instance, you can give it a chic appearance by concealing the outer portion in lace. Another possibility is to cover the surface with a piece of birch bark for a cottage and rustic look.
4. Use the Shutters
Smaller window boxes can be hung from shutters. This is a terrific idea if the shutters are always open and mainly there for an aesthetic purpose. Hang a box beneath the window and one on each shutter; include a different plant variety for each box.
Invest in New Window Installations Before a Window Box
Adding window boxes don’t complement the home much if the windows and siding are in disarray. Contact Exteriors Unlimited if the pending remodeling includes new windows or siding. Browse our gallery to see some examples. Window boxes are much more visually effective if the surrounding exterior is appropriately updated.
