We know that most windows are not square, 90% of them are rectangular, but the point is that when it comes to windows on your home don’t settle for the regular, think outside the window box. Windows come in all different shapes and sizes, yes, including square ones. By selecting windows for your home that are in different shapes other than rectangular it allows you to be creative in making your home look unique.
Round windows are good for providing light to rooms that would not normally have a window that opens. They work similar to skylights in allowing the sunlight in through the upper part of a room, but are instead located on the wall instead of ceiling.
Good locations in your home for a round window include:
- Entry Ways
- Bathrooms (When Frosted)
- Basements (With no occupants)
Hexagon windows work the same way as circular windows in allowing the light into a normally dark room. The difference between the two windows is the more decorative look that the shape of the octagon window adds to your home. This window also works if best used in the same places that the circular windows are used.
Arch windows are perfect to accent doors and other windows. They are always placed above a door or window and are usually never located anywhere else. They can be used alone like a circular or hexagon window, but rarely are.
Yes, bay and bow windows are technically rectangular in shape. However, the rectangular shape is restricted to shape of the windows, the entire unit of a bay or bow window is unique compared to windows that align flush with a wall
Bay and bow windows can be found in any part of the house but are usually used in kitchens, front rooms, and bedrooms. A kitchen bay or bow window can create a breakfast space to eat in, or a smaller version can be installed above the kitchen sink as a mini greenhouse. Bay and bow windows found in front rooms and bedrooms create a nice space to sit in to read a book or just enjoy the view out the window.
