While standard windows are elegant and sophisticated in their own right, there are instances where plain rectangular frames just won’t cut it. Enter specialty windows. These windows come in various shapes and sizes, providing your home with a unique appearance. Window replacement company Renewal by Andersen® of Des Moines offers specialty windows. Here are some of the available designs:
Circle Top™ Specialty Windows
Circle Top™ windows are exactly what their name suggests. With a flat bottom and a curved top, these windows are one of the most popular specialty window types favored by homeowners. Half circle windows are best installed above entry doors to provide natural light to the entry hallway. Half round windows can also be installed on top of standard window styles to maximize their aesthetic appeal. You also have the option of adorning your Circle Top windows with muntins for a more pronounced look.
Triangle Specialty Windows
Choose triangle windows for a truly modern look. These windows are usually fitted with fixed panes, making them the perfect source of natural light. Install triangle windows in attics, bathrooms, staircases or any high point in your house for a dramatic effect. Note that triangle windows also come in right triangle variants. Contact your replacement windows contractor regarding the ideal placement for triangle windows in your home.
Trapezoid Specialty Windows
While trapezoid windows can technically be considered linear, they are still unique-looking enough to be categorized as specialty windows. Perfect for awkward corners and attics, trapezoid windows offer a refreshing way of letting in natural light.
