Arched windows

When revamping your home’s style, many people underestimate how much beautifully crafted windows can impact a residence. Not only are custom windows admired from the exterior, but they give the homeowner a fantastic view of their property through a shape tailored to their style. Window shapes are a great way to express your creativity and attention to detail – and best yet, there’s almost no limit to how unique you can make these openings.

Types of Home Window Shapes

To pinpoint the shape of windows you want, you need to know what style you’re shooting for. Contemporary homes often have tall simple windows with comparable aluminum frames to give a sleek appearance. Meanwhile, many cottage-style houses are paired with thick wooden window frames and a variety of organic shapes like pentagons and full arch heads. Whatever your style is, the right window shape can complement your space. 

With Lifetime Windows & Doors, you can also mix and match your options! We offer a wide range of custom window options, so you can pair a variety of shapes until you find a unique design that perfectly suits your home. If you aren’t sure which type of custom window shape would best fit your needs, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experienced designers! Our experts are excited to recommend the perfect shapes to emphasize your unique style.

Choosing the Right Window Materials

When choosing a window material, it’s important to consider both functionality and aesthetics. Here’s what homeowners should know about the three most common window frame materials:

  • Wooden Windows: Wooden windows remain a traditional option for their durability, insulation, and beautiful classic look. However, wooden frames are more susceptible to damage from the weather and therefore require more maintenance than other materials.
  • Aluminum Windows: Aluminum windows are a popular choice because they are highly durable, easy to maintain, and environmentally friendly to produce. Though they come with a higher price tag than some other materials, they tend to last longer and are easy to care for.
  • Composite Windows: Composite windows are strong, durable, and resistant to weathering. They are also available in a wide range of color and pattern options to suit any style. That said, composite windows also generally have a higher price tag.

Custom Shape Window Installation

Custom windows not only enhance the appearance of your residence, but they also showcase your unique style and make your home a more comfortable place to relax. Don’t settle to gaze out dull windows; instead, personalize your space with stunning and distinctive windows that command attention.
