Triangular windows, also known as gable windows, are a great way to add visual interest to your home.
When imagining a window, most people immediately see a rectangle or square. However, an increasing focus on sunlight and quality of life are leading people to choose non-rectangular window shapes. Increasingly used in modern home design, a large triangular window can help to create a massive wall of light. They are commonly used in bedrooms combined with square or rectangle windows, in living rooms or at the entrance of the house to mimic your home's roofline and make a grand design statement.
Triangular windows are becoming more and more desirable in private houses, because they not only add great features and style to your home, but also ensure you can make the most use of all the space. Pitched roofs, attics and gables often become "lost" space which can be “reclaimed” by installing made to measure triangular windows. An irregularly shaped wall can suddenly be transformed into a great place to sit and read , or simply enjoy your new view, also increasing the indoor climate of your home. The unique shape of these windows also allows for interesting light patterns to be created within a space, adding to their aesthetic appeal.
