The importance of windows in our homes is often overlooked even though they are an important aesthetic and functional component. In fact, the very first thing most people do when they wake up is look out their window. Aside from letting natural light and fresh air or keeping heat inside as needed, windows provide a view of the outside world.

As windows serve many functions, some fail to recognize that they can also contribute to the general beauty of the house and are important to the overall design of the home. So if you are considering replacing your windows and improving the aesthetics of your home, you may want to look into decorative window replacements. Here are some types of decorative windows worth considering:

Custom Windows

If you want your windows to reflect your personal style, then the custom window is your answer. This type comes in special sizes and shapes such as circular, octagonal, etc. You can combine different shapes, and the output would definitely be a work of art.

Lattice Windows

Lattice windows consist of crisscrossed strips of wood or metal which are either set diagonally, to evoke a Victorian style, or squared. As they are usually set in neutral colors, lattice windows are great alternatives to stained glass windows as they can add to the aesthetics of the house without any concern as to whether the color will clash with the your interior design.

Stained Glass Windows

Stained glass windows are often associated with churches, but they can also be used at home. This type of window can instantly bring any house to life. Be sure to choose a design that will blend in with the rest of your house, whether it’s a simple geometric pattern or an intricate floral design. If you are working on a strict budget, opt for windows that look like real stained glass which you can purchase at lower cost, like the type of windows Wisconsin homes have.

Cathedral Glass Windows

As the name suggests this type of window takes after the beautiful windows found in churches. Many types of cathedral windows Madison homes have come with a pointed arc at the top, making them more suited for traditional homes rather than those with modern designs. It provides an interesting look to a house, but as the pointed arc usually reaches up to the ceiling, cleaning can be a bit of a challenge.
