How to cover a large window


Hello everyone,

I have a large window in my bedroom that lets in alot of light, and in the summer it gets unbearably hot. And because this window is so large, it takes up alot of wall space, which I do not have enough of. So, I was thinking about hitting two birds with one stone by covering it with plywood.

On top of the plywood, I will put a cork board, a white board, pictures, and one quarter chunk of it will be taken out so I can look out or open the window if I want a breeze or natural light.

My question is: What kind of wood should I get and do you have any suggestions as to how I decorate it? I’m completely open to ideas! Thank you

Please post a picture so we can see what your seeing.
Bedrooms must have an egress window that meets your local building codes.
I can picture just covering it with plywood may just create a radiant solar panel and look like poop from the outside.
