If you are interested in window upgrades, check out these five gorgeous window design ideas from our team at American Custom Contractors.

1. Picture Windows

If your house has a particularly lovely view, you might want to consider framing it with a picture window. Picture windows look like one large, uninterrupted glass pane.

They can’t be opened or closed, but they provide the ideal lens for a view of your yard or surroundings. Since they are not equipped with hinges or other mechanical pieces, picture windows can be a cost-effective widow upgrade as well.

2. Awning or Casement Windows

“Cranking” windows that swing outward on a hinge can make a versatile new addition to your home interior and exterior. Casement windows have hinges on one side and rise vertically, while awning windows are horizontal with hinges at the top.

Crank windows glide open and shut easily, and they have numerous benefits for ventilation. If you want the aesthetically pleasing appeal of a picture window with the added ventilation improvements, awning or casement windows are an excellent choice.

3. Bay Windows

Bay windows are one of the most dramatic enhancements you can make to the exterior of your home. They have one large fixed window flanked by two smaller vented windows on each side.

Bay windows protrude out from a flat surface of your home, which can give it more dimension and character. However, they are a more of a major construction project than a minor upgrade. Consider the costs carefully as you decide if they are the right addition to your home.

4. Entry Door Windows

Make your front door an eye catching statement on the front of your home by framing it with some windows. Add simple panels of picture windows on either side of the door or consider a semi-circular fanlight window directly above the door. Entry door windows make your home stand out from the street and cast beautiful natural light into your entryway.

5. Round Windows

Think outside of the box… literally! Add some circular windows to open space at the top of your walls to create a skylight effect in your home. A round window gives your home architectural interest both indoors and outdoors.
