Round Top Window Details
A round top window, as its name suggests, has a rounded arch at the top of its frame, plus a flat one at the bottom. These shapes deviate from conventional window frames, which are often in rectangular shape and with no curve to them. Round top windows are commonly used above other window styles or doors. They are also found in upper stories, and at the top of staircases.
The biggest advantage to round top windows is the stunning visual effect they provide.You can use them either as stand-alone window or as accents to other window styles (like casement and picture frame windows) or front doors to create a focal point. For added visual interest and drama, round top windows can be dressed with eye catching window treatments like grills or stained glass.
Another advantage of round top windows is that they can add a significant amount of light and heat into a room without taking up a lot of space. The amount of light or heat they invite, of course, depends on the size of their frames. Also, because round top windows don’t have moving parts, they are high on energy efficiency.
Overall, round top windows can improve both the appeal and aesthetic value of your home. They are made available in a huge selection of sizes and can also be custom made to meet a homeowner’s artistic ideas.
