Every house has a quirky space where a traditional window shape just won’t work. But those odd angles and tricky accents are what make a house a home. And they’re certainly no reason to give up on your dreams of more natural light. After all, a beautiful view is that much more beautiful when seen through a uniquely shaped window. Here are seven custom window shapes that will help you make the most of your one-of-a-kind space:
Triangle windows are a great way to add to your home’s distinction; use varying sizes to showcase interesting angles, or bring light into your top-floor space.
In half, quarter or full, a circle window is classic and serene. Add drama and light to a cozy reading nook, or try one as a skylight to really wow.
An arched window is an elegant addition to a traditional room. Go big to accentuate your home’s architecture, and draw eyes upward.
Place a hexagon window high in a bathroom where you want to maximize light, while still keeping things secluded. Try it in reeded glass for even more privacy.
For a dynamic visual effect, don’t be afraid to try trapezoid windows. Two, in mirror image of each other, are just magic. Especially above a doorway! But remember to consider scale—appropriate size is always important when installing any shaped window.
Want an ultra-contemporary feel? How about a window shaped like a parallelogram? Sounds outrageous, but it’s actually the perfect way to spice up dull spaces like a staircase, or even a closet. Worried about window treatments? Don’t be; you can get custom blinds made for any shaped window.
You may have just raised one thinking about this, but an eyebrow window is a gorgeous, curvaceous way to get some light into an attic space. Named for their appearance, eyebrows are narrow, elliptical arched windows, usually located on the front of a home’s roof. They’re as stunning as they are functional.
