For some homeowners, the view from their windows can change pretty quickly. Whether it's new development or drab landscaping, sometimes one may want their view from the inside to be obstructed. The Edmonton Journal reports that there are several ways to subtly block an unattractive view of the outdoors.

According to the news source, the first area to address is which windows are the worst offenders. There are a number of characteristics to take into consideration, such as size, location and shape.

While the correct window treatment will effectively provide a buffer between the outside world and the homeowner, they can also add an exciting and unique design element to the interior, so their aesthetic benefits should be considered as well. The news provider reports that experts recommend using roller shades because they offer a simple, clean design while effectively blocking the view.

In addition to providing a respite from a less-than-attractive scene, roller shades can keep rooms cooler in the summer by keeping oppressive rays from the sun out of a house.
