5 Egress Window Decorating Ideas for Your Basement

The word “egress” literally means “to leave a place”, and these classy egress window decorating ideas definitely provide a safe and stylish exit – all while letting in plenty of natural light and complying with the International Building Code.

  • Plants – Decorating your egress window well with plants is a beautiful idea, but be sure they are small enough to let natural light through. Planting a shrub, for example, is not a good idea.
  • Alternative Walls – Instead of basic metal wall designs, you can use decorative rocks – or even better, luxury vinyl tiling – for a more earthy feel.

Luxury vinyl tiling (LVT) can give you many natural looks at a fraction of the cost.

  • Sunlight – Some egress window decorating ideas look great, but don’t let in much natural light. Always consider the design in addition to the aesthetics.

These special curved window wells force natural light into your room and amplify it.

  • Well Covers – Adding a cover to your egress window well lets you control the amount of natural light that comes into your basement while also keeping the well clean of yard debris. 

Leaves stay out of your well with a cover.

  • Steps – Adding small steps to your egress window well can be a cheaper and quicker alternative to walk out basements.
