It's true that home improvements give you very little deduction each year. If they wear out before the end of 39 years you can claim all remaining depreciation in that year.

Unregistered My new furnace which cost over $5000 last year gave me an $8 depreciation deduction for this year. Yep. $8.

I would treat new windows as a home improvement - depreciate over 39 years, not eligible for the 50% bonus rule.
I would treat new furniture as personal property - depreciate over 7 years, is eligible for the 50% bonus rule.
