The ‘Perfect’ View: How to Create the Best View without Having to Move

New research last week revealed that 82% of Britons would pay more for a house with a perfect view. The average that people are willing to pay is a whopping £70,000!

But how do you get the perfect view without the hefty price tag? Adam Pawson, property expert from leading window specialists, Safestyle, shares how to create the perfect view. This way everyone can build a window view that works for them, without having to move house to achieve it.

1. Maximise your sunlight

Daylight can have a huge impact on mood, and there are easy ways you can get some more into your home. 

Adam says: “You can enjoy the longest period of sunlight by positioning your workstation, or sofa, in a south-facing position, ensuring you get as much of that valuable daylight as possible.

“Large windows, such as bay windows, with minimal dressings will also help to achieve maximum daylight.”

You may also install Custom Glass Window Treatments to help you control the amount of sunlight you get in a room.

2. Remove any obstacles from your view

Take in as much of your horizon and the nature it has to offer by opening up your window to reveal the full panoramic view, as well as removing any obscuring objects from your windowsill.

Getting a window replacement or investing in some French windows is perfect for those who want to enjoy a relaxing, picture-perfect view as there’s no obstruction in sight.

3. Bring the outside, inside

Nature is also great for your mood, and having plants and flowers brightens a space.

Adam says: “If you have a window overlooking your garden, plant some evergreens such as Rhododendrons that you can admire all year long.”

“If you don’t have any garden space, get some indoor plants to put on your windowsill, or fill a vase with some colourful blooms.”

4. Get some fresh air  

Spending too much time inside isn’t always the best, so make sure to get well-needed fresh air.

Adam says: French windows are an incredible way to bring in plenty of fresh air, making your space feel breezy and relaxing.”

“If French windows aren’t your thing, be sure to have a window open regularly anyway to ensure plenty of fresh air seeps into your home.”
