Unusually shaped windows for Wixom homes What shape are the windows in your Wixom-area home in? I’ll admit that’s a bit of a trick question because it can be taken two ways. The thing is, the how you answer both questions is pretty important.

One way to understand the question is to consider what kind of condition your existing windows are in. It’s easy to take your windows for granted. And if you’ve lived in your home for a while you may not notice subtle changes. Maybe your heating bills are a little higher in the winter than they used to be. And maybe you feel a small draft if you sit too close the windows.

The reverse happens in the summer. No matter how high you crank the air conditioning, it never seems to keep the house cool—despite rising cooling costs.

Then there’s the visual impact that older windows can have. If you’ve got condensation between panes it just doesn’t look good. And if your frames and hardware are older, it can make the inside (and outside) of your home look a little tired or shabby.

There is, of course, another aspect to the “shape” of your windows. I’m talking about the geometric shape your windows have. If you want to create an interesting focus in your home, having an unusually shaped window can create a truly unique look.

Maybe you’re looking for an oval-shaped window for a small sitting area in your foyer. Or perhaps you have a staircase that’s just crying out for a circular window. On the other hand, you may have a home office or a dining room that needs a bit more light and would benefit from an arched window to let in additional daylight. Or you might have an attic bedroom or guest room that feels a little dark and claustrophobic. A polygon window that follows the lines of the roof can add tons of visual space to a smaller room—and brighten it up dramatically. Here you see just some of the geometric shapes that are available.
