Gorgeous Ways To Decorate a Window Well

If you properly install and maintain your window well, it will be a beneficial amenity in your home for quite some time. However, if you don't take the time to enhance your window well's visual appeal, you're not taking advantage of its full potential. Window wells certainly aren't ugly, but there are a number of ways for you to make them stand out in a truly brilliant, aesthetically pleasing way. This list will show you three gorgeous ways to decorate a window well with style and ease.

Design a Garden Around It

If you're a fan of gardening or would like to begin indulging in the hobby, then you should consider designing one around your window wells. Growing some flowers or shrubs around the window well opening provides a stylish means of accentuating the well, whether you're planting chrysanthemums, marigolds, daylilies, or any other brilliant plant life available for you to use.

Plus, a garden will help you obscure any part of the window well sticking up below ground level, and instead, provide a colorful view for any passerby to enjoy. Some very talented gardeners will even grow plants inside window wells; however, going down that route requires you to take the proper steps to ensure you don't hinder the well's drainage capabilities while doing so.

Get Creative with Textures (Inside and Outside)

One of the great benefits of planting a garden around your window well is the unique texture it can provide to the area, though there are a variety of other ways you can do this. Metal window wells look great.

Additionally, fiberglass window wells can also create a stylish look while still displaying all the qualities of a well. However, instead of adding a unique texture to the interior of the well, you can do it outside of it too. Similar to the garden, you can also use materials like wood chips and pebbles to provide an aesthetically pleasing texture that makes a great focal point for any yard.

Add a Decorative Liner

Not only is this one of the most gorgeous ways to decorate a window well, but it's also one of the easiest ways of decorating it. If you take a look at the options for decorative window well liners, you'll see that turning your basement view into a brilliant waterfall, vibrant forest, or a palm-tree covered sunset isn't as tough as you might have thought beforehand.

In the case of a decorative liner, you can handpick the type of natural beauty you want on display without worrying about upkeep or climate conditions. Aside from the beautiful views they provide you, high-quality decorative window well liners can also withstand the elements with ease, which means you won't have to worry about issues like fading overtime.
