Unless you live in a cave, every house needs windows! Windows let in light, fresh air, give you a view and create a wider sense of space in your home. They bring air and brightness to the design and décor of a house, let in natural light and a cool breeze on a warm day. Windows are a virtual necessity in a home!
The stock standard shape for windows is square or rectangular, unless of course you are on a ship! You can get windows in all sorts of sizes, as long as it’s rectangular, a bit like the original Ford, only in black. Whether a multi-paned window or a huge picture window, they pretty much all come in rectangular shapes. This is what all houses are fitted with as a standard.
But what if you want something different, there are a few very funky shaped window design ideas for you to consider that are outside of the norm yet still beautiful for the design and decor of your home. Here are a few of them to look at for inspiration.
This funky shaped window design idea is very pretty. Still using predominantly square or rectangular window panes in its design, this window is formed to create a sharp arched shape which is quite organic and soft looking. The design idea is slightly medieval in its look but far wider, allowing a great deal more light into the room that your usual arrow turret slit. But one need not only use this design idea in a stone clad home. These arched would be even more striking soaring up the walls of a contemporary or minimalist home.
Here the designer has used a beautiful but funky shaped window design to create a scalloped effect. Using a combination of square, rectangular and quarter circle glass panes this window design works well in the A-frame building. This is a very funky design idea for double volume homes.
If you want to keep the rectangular shape of your window frame while still doing something a little different have a look at this funky shaped window design idea. Here small round window panes have been used to make up the inside of the window frame resulting in a design that looks a little like bubbles.
