Specialty windows are fixed windows that do not have the standard rectangular shape of standard windows. They can be in any shape, from simple circles or triangles to octagons. These windows are generally regarded as decorative windows, and with the right design and placement they can add a true “wow” factor to your home. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares some tips to help you make the most of your specialty window replacement:
Boost Natural Lighting
Our specialty windows are great for increasing the amount of natural light that enters your home. Thanks to their unique shapes, specialty windows are effective in areas where regular windows wouldn’t work, like at the top of a stairwell. Adding a circular specialty window in a tall entryway is a popular choice. Meanwhile, a triangular specialty window is often seen under gables, perfect for attics converted as living spaces.
Eye-Catching Window Combinations
All Renewal by Andersen specialty windows are custom-built, so combining these windows with other conventional window styles is easily done. Add softness to casement windows with a graceful half-circle specialty window at the top. You can also install floor-to-ceiling picture windows that follow a sloping roofline. We recommend inspecting your current windows before investing in specialty windows, as your current windows may need to be replaced first. If that’s the case, choose from our beautiful selection of standard replacement windows to maintain your home’s beauty and comfort.
If sidelights and conventional windows aren’t doing anything for your entry doors, consider specialty windows. Aside from their interesting shape, you can further customize them with our wide array of customization options to fit your door’s aesthetic.
