Did you know that a bad view outside your windows can lower your property value? Real estate agents recommend that if you have a terrible view outdoors, you should make an effort to change that. Unfortunately, since transporting your home to a different location is unlikely to be a viable option, there may not be anything to be done about the view.
The good news is there are some simple, affordable tricks you can implement to divert attention from your ugly view:
Install a Living Screen
If you have enough space outdoors, you can easily block the ugly view by making use of a living screen. You can use any type of mature trees to stylishly conceal the view. Bamboo is a great, low-maintenance choice.
Create an Artistic Space
You can place a sculpture or some hanging ornamental plants outside your windows. This will not only block the plain walls of your neighbor’s property, but it will also help add beauty to your landscape.
Install Textured or Patterned Curtains or Shade Rollers
Add romance and whimsy to your space by hanging patterned curtains or textured shade rollers on your windows. Sheer curtains work particularly well for this purpose because they allow you to still enjoy natural light from outside, but the view through your replacement windows will be obstructed.
