Windows have always been an integral element for both the architecture and interior design of a house. With the rapidly evolving home design trends, the structure of the windows has come a long way as well. From houses supporting the traditional Victorian-style windows to casement windows to the current minimalist designs, each layout reflects a prominent shift in the style. Below are four top window design ideas by Architectural Design Firms in Pakistan.
The shape of the window is one of the basic structural aspects, a change in the form gives a completely new look to the window. People have always been fond of incorporating windows of different sizes and shapes in their homes. Arched windows go back to being a very popular trend in the early 1900s, which was taken over by the square-shaped windows that the designers have incorporated into almost all styles of houses. However, the trend seems to be changing now as people are more interested in building a timeless look for their homes and nothing works better than bringing back the vintage arched windows. These windows have squared bottoms and an arched half circle on the top. They are super easy to maintain and if they have an opening, then nothing beats the ventilation they provide. Also, arched windows get along with all the interior trends from a classic décor with beautiful wooden furniture or a minimalistic design with bare walls and streamlined furniture, arched windows would sync in perfectly. These windows are great for rooms that fall to the exterior front of the house, like the living room or an office, etc.
Luxury Wood Panels
Windows with wooden panels have always been in style and are still in the top trends. Wood and glass are put together to make the perfect combination to give the room a classy and traditional look. These windows usually support a rectangular shape, incorporating clear glass, with center and exterior panels made up of wood. The majority of such windows are constructed using pine wood, which helps give a clean look to the décor of the house and is cost-effective as well. However recently, people have shown interest in investing in luxury wood for the windows of their house because they add to the life of the material and make the room look more regal. The high-end wood used for windows include white oak, maple, cedar, and mahogany. These luxury wooden windows when paired with furniture made of the same wood is sure to create a majestic feel for any room. So if you have a room that supports luxury wood panels in its window design, make sure you add in prominent wooden furniture pieces like a carved coffee table or a wooden couch, to unleash the wooden magic.
Windows for a Wall
Did you ever wish to have a huge window so that you can enjoy the complete view without any restriction? One of the top window design trends this year is to turn a whole wall into a window panel. Yep! You heard that right. Interior designers are replacing entire walls with large window panels to make the room appear larger and brighter. This not only instantly adds to the aesthetic vibe of the house but also enhances its market value. Architects in Pakistan have used such window designs for houses that support sunrooms and living rooms that have one exterior end towards the lawn. In this way, the room gets a good amount of sunlight during the winters and in summers it makes you feel closer to nature as it would open right into the green grass and trees.
Black frames are a popular choice amongst those who want to add a luxuriously chic look to their room. Commonly seen, window frames are of neutral colors, ranging between off-white and beige tones because they are thought of as safe colors that easily complement any color scheme. However, black also syncs perfectly with most of the color palettes and has the spark to make the whole setup look more aesthetically pleasing. These frames pair great with white hues in the rest of the space and are popularly installed in bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens as well.
Based on the style, space, and décor requirements, you can choose window designs that suit your needs and preference.
