Create Nooks

You don’t have to put the same window style into every window, even if you can see most of the windows on the main floor from one spot. In fact, when you vary the window styles, you give the rooms different feels, even if they are all together. Perhaps add a bay or bow window where the table goes, for example, to give you a breakfast nook look and feel. You can put casement windows into the kitchen so they’re easy to open and close and double hung windows in the living room for a unique appeal.

Add Lighting

The space is already open and airy, but to make it feel as welcoming as possible, take natural light into account when you put in replacement windows. Most homeowners want as much natural light as they can get. You might do things like put in a skylight, change a bank of windows into one big picture window, and add windows above doorways. Consider low-E coatings on the glass panes so you don’t have to worry about adding heat along with the extra light.

Change Style With Window Treatments

One big open space doesn’t have to have the same style all the way around. You can vary that style, even if the windows are similar, with the window treatments. Perhaps in the kitchen, where you always want natural light, you’ll just put a valance over the top of the window. In the living room, you use Roman shades for an infusion of style. And in the dining room, you want shutters for a lasting style that will give you light filtering options. As long as the treatments look good together, since you can see them all at once, they can also help break the rooms apart a bit more.
