- Updating the shape of the window can significantly change your home’s overall look and feel and improve its performance.
- Once the special shape windows are selected, you can further customize the windows to enhance the custom look with custom hardware options or a custom-designed grille pattern.

Special shape window options
Windows come in shapes beyond the traditional square and rectangle and provide various functions beyond simply opening up and down. The functionality, aesthetics and safety requirements of different rooms of the home may require special shape windows. Incorporating special shape window options in a home’s design, such as round, oval, half-moon, hexagon, triangle, or trapezoid windows, can add interest to the square exterior windows. Additional custom-shaped window options includes round top, eyebrow, half ellipse, and full round window shapes. Special shape windows add a unique detail to elevate your home’s interior aesthetic.
Custom-sized windows are a special shape window replacement option that will allow significantly more natural light to shine through. For example, an expansive picture window can transform a dark family room into a bright, airy space. Beyond the aesthetic value special shape windows offer, they also focus on effective ventilation, airflow and sunlight.
Below are some of the top benefits of special shape windows:
- Fit into challenging areas
- Add character and personality to a home’s interior and exterior
- Come in many different shapes, styles, materials and colors
- Have the ability to further customize, with hardware and grille patterns
- Can be designed to your exact specifications
Why select a special shape window replacement?
Updating the shape of the window can significantly change your home’s overall look and feel. This may mean changing a double-hung window to an expansive bay window with flanking casement windows to allow more light to come in and to provide additional interior seating. This could also mean changing a double-hung window to a casement window to control the airflow better. Or changing a sliding door to French doors to create more of a statement. Replacing a square window with a round or oval window in a small space, such as a bathroom, is an excellent way to add interest.
Accentuating a special shape window
Once the special shape windows are selected, you can further customize the windows to enhance the custom look. One customization option is custom grille patterns that can complement the home’s architectural accuracy. You can customize a window’s grille patterns in many ways, such as the number of grilles, the pattern in which they’re laid, the color of the grilles and the widths. For example, traditional homes often have a busier grill pattern. Alternatively, mid-century modern houses often have more oversized windows with no grilles.
After installing your special shape windows, you’ll likely need a custom window treatment to best fit the unique style, shape and size. Custom window treatments will also accentuate a custom window’s special features.
The importance of professional installation
If you’re considering a special shape window replacement, it’s essential to consult a professional. Working with a professional will help you identify the most appropriately sized special shape window, and will properly install the window.
