Top 5 Decorating Tips for Your Garden Window

Garden windows are like small bay windows with a sloping glass roof, typically installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms. Primarily designed to accommodate small plants, garden windows in Edison, NJ allow abundant natural light into your home, and can add a warm, homey look to otherwise sparsely decorated spaces.

Garden Window

If you have a garden window or are looking into getting one, here are some tips for decorating it:

  1. Decorative plants: There’s no limit to what kinds of plants you can put in your garden window, but there are a few considerations when choosing decorative plants. Fragrant flowering plants may end up being too much for your kitchen, but can work well for your bathroom. Consider year-round flowers with bright colors: they add a bright, cheerful splash of color to any room.
  2. Cooking herbs: Consider growing cooking herbs in your kitchen garden windows. Many cooking herbs, including parsley, basil, and cilantro, require lots of sunlight, which makes them the perfect plants to grow in a garden window. Plus, having fresh herbs within reach will also lead to tastier homemade meals!
  3. Ordered arrangement: If you have limited display space by your Edison, NJ windows, we recommend focusing on one main plant, perhaps a brightly colored or rare flower, and arranging other smaller plants around it. A few well-chosen plants are preferable over a forest of random ones.
  4. Maximize daylight: The garden window’s glass roof provides much-needed sunlight for your plants and also helps illuminate the room. Avoid placing tall plants on the garden window, as they can block the window glass and hoard all the sunlight.
  5. Accessorize: If you find arranging plants a bit too plain, you can get creative and fill the spaces with items like figurines or sculptures.
