Corner windows are one of the best ways to add a fresh look to your home, and if you’re planning on buying replacement windows soon, you should at least consider these windows. There are many ways to style a corner window, and here are some ideas to get you started.
Most people tend to think of bay windows when talking about window seats, but you can achieve a similar effect by placing an L-shaped couch against a corner window. You get an extra-wide window seat that’s perfect for reading, study, or relaxation. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass’s ability to block harmful UV and infrared rays, you don’t have to worry about your couch fabric fading or your room heating up from the sun.
If couches are too big for your room, most single seaters, including bean bags and antique chairs, work equally well in the same setting. To maximize the view, choose tall picture windows. We recommend combining it with operable windows for visual accent and ventilation.
If you’ve always wanted a corner office, here’s one way to go about getting it. While a traditional desk can be placed in front of your corner window, a built-in desk maximizes floor space, perfect if your home office is integrated into or adjoining a bedroom. Also, a window-facing desk helps reduce glare on your computer screen. If your home office can’t accommodate floor to ceiling windows, choose adjoining grille-less casement or double hung windows for form and function.
Let more light into your bathroom with a nice corner window. If privacy is a concern, install the corner window at the upper part of the wall. This lets you keep your bathroom private without sacrificing the view and natural lighting. On the other hand, if your bathroom is facing the sea, overlooking a hill, or is in any other area where privacy isn’t a concern, choose a floor-to-ceiling window. It’s the perfect spot to install a luxury tub or a Jacuzzi.
