Not everyone can live at 432 Park Avenue, gazing out their floor-to-ceiling windows at a Central Park that, from 1,400 feet in the air, resembles a “well-maintained rug.” But that doesn’t mean your outlook on the outside has to be drab. Or so reports Apartment Therapy, which collected 10 tricks for improving a lackluster view.
While sheer, patterned curtains are an obvious solution—seeing as they hide the scene outdoors while still letting light peak through—a couple of other good options include hanging plants around window frames or adding decorative elements to the window panes themselves. For example, you could put up stained glass panels or get a similar effect with float frames, wherein decorative paper is stuck between two sheets of glass. The point is both to distract from the scene outside and to give you something else to look at—which, frankly, could come in handy for buyers at No. 432 as well. Can anyone say ... vertigo?
