Open up your design plan

Windows can make a room appear more airy and spacious, and they add so much drama! It could be the shape of the windows that’s interesting or the size (really large!) or the view outside (really spectacular!) that adds the pizazz.

Non-standard windows may already be in a house you’ve built or purchased. Or you may be planning a renovation and thinking of adding new windows. Depending on the size and shape of the window you select, specialty windows work in almost any room of your house!
