A lot of people have good reasons for having a Living Room Window but when you are considering those reasons, you need to consider some of the ways that the neighbors might not be feeling very enthusiastic about. Having a window that is small will also make it difficult to make the room appear larger because the amount of light coming through the window will be limited and you won’t be able to do much with the windows other than accent them. So, how can you get the look that you want without making your neighbors angry?
If you are the type of person who likes to be out and about during the day and looks at views rather than looking at homes, then you should think about leaving your view windows down for the time being. The large size of a window is one of the reasons that they were built in the first place. One of the best ways to save energy is to open them for just a few hours a day. Not only will this keep your energy bills down but you will also be able to take advantage of the free light and see better with it.

If you plan on using your window to entertain with the TV and music system, you can help to save energy by using the blinds to cover up the windows as well. It would be even better if you could do this during the wintertime, when it is warm outside. If you use covers and shades, you may be causing the energy bill to go up as well as creating a mess for your furniture to clean up after you are done using them.
When it comes to air conditioning and heating your home, you are going to want to minimize the amount of air that moves around the house. An energy-efficient cooling system will be your best bet for this. You can always try the old standby and cold air up and down the vents but for a lot less money, you can find modern air conditioners that offer other features as well.
Using a solar or wind power cooling system for heating and air conditioning can be a great idea. A solar system can be set up fairly easily to provide both a power source and a means to store it. The drawback is that you will need to be careful and check the voltage so that you don’t fry anything that you really love.

Another option for a window that will add to the feel of your home is to use it to extend your living room. As long as you choose the right design and install it properly you will be able to make it seem like you have extra space in your room. You will be able to get some unique touches in your space that you may not have considered before. In some cases, you will need to hire someone to come in and do the installation for you.
Lighting is a big part of your room, so you need to make sure that you invest in enough lights. If you want to see clearly and bright, you may need to change the size of the bulbs so that you can make sure that you are not wasting too much power. Make sure that you choose a color that fits your walls and trim and get it wired properly so that you don’t have to call someone to fix it yourself.
