The right choice of windows and doors has the power to transform an ordinary looking home into an expensive home planned by an interior designer.
There are many attractive window designs available to renovate existing ones or to include in your new home.
Although attractive window designs may seem, it is essential to choose windows that are not only elegant but also practical to use and maintain.
And for some time-tested architectural window plans that are visually great, here are these window designs.
Full wall window
Full-walled windows are large floor-to-ceiling windows, also called French windows that serve the purpose of both a door and window.
These windows allow access to the patio or the outside of the house, and come in sliding or folding form.
It also gives you an abundance of natural light entering the room, since the entire window area is mainly made of glass.
Roof windows are another way to release abundant natural light from the sky.
These windows are located on the roof line of the house,
and are the best alternative when you have limited options while designing wall windows to bring in more natural light.
A louver window is suitable for kitchen, bathrooms and rooms in the attic.
Bay windows are similar to curved windows with a slight difference,
and a bay window is a group of 3 windows connected at 30-45 degree angles to form an angled window bump in the wall.
Large windows are also a great feature to let in light from different angles,
are a favorite addition to the kitchen and family room and are often used as a seating area or sport flower pots.
An arch window is a type of bay window that comes in a group of 3 to 5 windows connected together,
meeting at 10 degree angles.
Arched windows create the perfect space for a reading nook or sitting area,
and arch windows are commonly found in living rooms and bedrooms.
A garden window is another wall addition, as it is a smaller version of a large greenhouse-like window that protrudes from the house.
These windows are specifically designed to install plants on the windowsill and are ideal for kitchen windows.
These are arched windows with rounded tops that are added above the regular windows just for the architectural look they provide.
These windows come in fixed shapes or can be opened sideways like a casement window and are best suited to façade walls.
As the name suggests, picture windows are a large area of fixed glass windows that do not open.
It also provides a complete view of the outdoors because it is made of a single piece of glass that has no frames inside.
Although a picture window is great for unobstructed viewers,
even the best window manufacturer won’t be able to control the amount of heat they attract into the room.
So it is best suited where the air flow can be penetrated, such as the hallway, home office or bathroom.
Transverse windows are decorative windows located above the front door and ordinary windows.
Used in arch, square, or rectangle shapes, this window addition creates an attractive façade while adding a delicious focal point to your porch.
The transverse window comes in a fixed shape and can be opened to allow air to flow from the top of the door or window.
They are the best weatherproof windows you can get for your home.
It also provides privacy, soundproofing and repels insects.
Besides these advantages, glass windows are striking as they come in a wide range of colors and patterns.
These fixed windows are best suited for bathrooms and basement windows.
