4. Screen grilles for cantilevered windowsA cantilevered window is a terrific way to expand an upper-floor bedroom or study. The sense of expansiveness can be heightened by converting the entire extended wall into a window – which, then, requires a screen that allows views out but not in. It also makes for a sleek, smart facade. Here, the entire window is made up of closely set grilles, in keeping with the geometric exteriors.

Redefine with wall muralsMurals are a fun and a creative way to spruce up entire walls. Consider using murals on the exterior of your house, such as on the porch or the balcony wall and transform it into an attention-grabbing space. An appealing aspect of decorating with murals is that you can create specific designs to suit your taste, the dimensions of your walls and the architecture of your home.

You can have a mural outdoors, too. Here, the hand-painted mural adds beauty to the terrace wall and brings in a bit of tradition to the contemporary look of the structure. Tip: Use a protective coating against UV rays on an outdoor mural to prevent it from fading in harsh sunlight.See more of this house
