Scenario: You decide it is time to replace your windows only to realize that they are not standard sizes and shapes….consider this…
In the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the South Rose window is arguably the most famous in the world. Its 84 stained glass panels are spread between four circles and span an impressive 42.3 feet in diameter. Aside from its beauty and historical significance, another feature that makes this window unique is the panels’ shape—there is no square or rectangle in sight.
You may not install a Parisian rose window in your home anytime soon, but you can still add character with unique windows.
What Are Uniquely Shaped Windows?
Unique windows, also called custom or architectural windows, go beyond the traditional rectangle. They encompass a variety of shapes and styles to add visual intrigue to your home. Here is a quick look at three nontraditional window shapes.
- Why Would You Install Uniquely Shaped Windows?
Unique windows set your home apart from others in the neighborhood. They enhance the curb appeal of your home while creating a standout, one-of-a-kind look.
- Uniquely shaped windows serve a practical purpose, too, by allowing more light to enter your home. Having your architectural windows professionally installed will ensure your home stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, leading to energy savings year-round.
