Curved and shaped windows
Windows for architectural impact.
A window does not have to be rectangular. You can make a big impression and add a dramatic effect to your home by installing different windows shapes.
Shaped windows are a fantastic design solution to really add personality and distinction to your home. One of the primary benefits of shaped windows is their aesthetic appeal. These windows can create a sense of elegance and sophistication that is not often found in standard rectangular windows. Shaped windows can be used to highlight certain architectural features of a building or to create a focal point in a room. For example, a circular window in a turret can create a stunning visual element, while a curved window (also called arched window) over a doorway can add great visual impact.
Another advantage of shaped windows is their ability to bring in more natural light. Because of their unique shape, they can often provide more light than traditional rectangular windows of the same size. This can help to brighten up a space and create a more inviting atmosphere. Additionally, shaped windows can be strategically placed to take advantage of natural light at different times of the day.
