From sleek and modern to cozy and romantic, there are so many beautiful window possibilities to choose from. When picking the right style to fit your home renovation needs, you need to take into consideration the desired overall atmosphere. Different windows let in different kinds of light. A floor-to-ceiling window pane will let in more light than a sliver of glass tucked away in the left corner of the house. Bedroom windows and home-office windows also differ in selection. Before you make any decisions, ask yourself big or small, round or square, demi-circle or whole, colored or mosaic, simple or detailed.
What’;s the one thing photographers desperately look to control? Lighting, lighting, lighting! By lighting, obviously I mean natural lighting. Nothing can compete with the warm afternoon sun that sweetly kisses everything in its glory. Maximizing the amount of sunlight in your house will not only be a natural way to stay healthy, but also a smart and environmentally friendly choice to cut your electricity bill each month.
Below are some window selections to give you a better idea as to how you would like to come about building your dream house. You know how they say our eyes are the windows to our soul, well the same can be said about homes. Windows let in life and light, both of which help cultivate a lifestyle that is filled with beauty.
Oddity is a Beauty
We have all come to appreciate windows that are well-angled and geometrically balanced, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to install a piece of glass that is no where near traditional? Given the chance, it would be in your favor to experiment with varying sizes and shapes. You might be wondering where in the house could you install these quirky options.
For starters, round windows would be a great addition to nurseries and playrooms because the overall attitude of the room needs to be accented with something a little more delicate. Personal studies would do best with a kind of window that contrasts the level of seriousness within.
Make it Grand
Ceiling-to-floor windows boasts elegance. They have the energy to command the overall ambiance of the room, creating a setting that is comfortable and invigorating. Large faces of glass can be tricky to accommodate, but if they are done right, they have the ability to bring a whole room to life. Some windows are frameless and require little to not support structure, while others are a bit more dependent on skeletal supports – it all really comes down to what your preference it.

As you can see, windows can be positioned at an angle to blend in more texture to the room. Flat surfaces are good to have, but these other kinds of windows are what makes your home pop.
Cottages Are Always Better
So many of us deep down want to turn our homes into one of those sweet, middle-of-the-woods houses because they are so much more charming than our suburban cinderblocks. While you can’;t reposition your home, you can take inspiration from it and install windows taken from Golidlock’;s front porch. Kitchens would look a whole lot better with windows such as the ones below. The material used for the frames are also an important aspect. Wooden frames give off a more rustic and subtle wonder, while steel ones are a bit more bold.
Bedrooms With Style
We spend more time in the bedroom than in any other room in the house. It is utterly important to decorate your chambers with extra care and detail. Semi-circulars with divisions are something you don’;t see everyday, and could be a great wall ornament as well. The same amount of creativity you put in your bedroom design should also go into bathroom decor. Relaxing in a perfectly-arranged bathroom is an art in itself.
