Consider Adding Interest With Shapes
A standard square window will add light and open a space, but a window that incorporates a unique design element can be a show stopper. These are just a few basic shapes, but you can get creative and design a window that fits perfectly for your own space.
Who says a window only belongs on a wall? Surely we can think of some creative places for windows!
Skylights can draw the eye upward and are especially nice in a small space. They are not intrusive like a hanging lighting fixture and offer a streamlined source of light for your room. Skylights can also be any shape or size.
Turning an Entire Wall into a Window
This can be the perfect way to merge your space with the environment. Creating a window wall lets in in a lot of light and visually expands your space. It's also a great way to bring the colors of nature into a room with a simple color palate.
Adding Windows To or Around Doors
If you are putting in a functional door, you might consider placing windows around the door frame. This is a technique often used around entry doors to make the entrance more grand.
If you have constructed a breakout location in which your door is purely stationary, you might also consider creating the illusion of a window built into the door itself.
Creating a Conservatory Ceiling
A much larger version of a skylight, a conservatory ceiling will definitely transform a space.
A window can be more than just a source of light and airflow.
Designed With a Window Seat
A window seat is a perfect way to enjoy a view, utilize light for reading, or maximize space in a small room. A window seat can also include doors for extra storage or have a built in bookcase.
A Bay Window protrudes past the exterior wall of a house and forms a nook on the interior. A Bay Window can be utilized in a kitchen to grow herbs for cooking or in living areas to house collectibles.
Instead of leaving a window transparent, you might consider using stained glass. It's a perfect option for interior builds with no exterior view.
