The Radius Windows
The radius windows also known as the arch windows are rectangular windows with top in the shape of an arch or a half-circle. They help bringing softness to the home interior as well as exterior. These windows can be operable to let in fresh air or fixed to only let in light. The radius windows are enhanced by adding grids. The grids are bars that divide the glass of each arch window into many smaller portions for adding a decorative effect. At times, each of the smaller panes is painted with a different stain glass color for a striking effect.
The Awning Windows
These are special windows hinged on the top and open outwards. The reason for popularity of awning windows is their ability to ventilate air flawlessly without letting rain in or to allow leaves fall in. The awning windows are most popular for basement rooms as well as for the washrooms. They are usually smaller in size than double hung, casements or sliders.
The Bow Windows
The bay and bow windows can be found in a number of architectural settings. The dramatic extension of these special windows adds a great deal of architectural accent to a home’s elevation. These windows can be flanked with casement to get additional light and ventilation. The bay windows are a blend of three windows of same widths, extending out from your home’s exterior wall.
