How To Use Round Windows And Frames
Round windows break the monotony of straight lines that define almost every home.
Whilst they are mostly used on hobbit houses and rustic cottages, boats and ships, they make a fantastic focal point in virtually any property.
A well-placed round window can add charm to your home – giving it a unique appearance you can be proud of for years to come. What’s more, round window frames provide a brand new look with minimal effort and expense.
Whether you’re looking to welcome more natural light into your traditional-style home or create a dramatic statement at your contemporary abode, there are endless possibilities you can achieve with round windows and frames.
Here are just some of our favourite ideas on how to use round windows around the house:
Add a nautical touch to your bathroom
Want to make trips to the bathroom more fun for your little ones? A round window is perfect.
You could opt for an under-the-sea theme – painting the walls blue and using shells, sand and plants (and rubber ducks!) to adorn your family bathroom. Round window frames will also make it feel more like a submarine, which is perfect for your aspiring young sailors.
In your en-suite, a round window could be carefully positioned to ensure privacy whilst inviting loads of natural light into the room – making it feel much bigger than it actually is – and giving your space a more sophisticated look.
Shine some light on your staircase
Is your staircase dark and dingy? Though you could hang pendant lights above and install linear step lights on each tread, round windows offer an energy-efficient alternative.
During the day, the light will flood in through the window and illuminate your stairs, meaning you won’t need to switch the lights on. Not only will they allow you to save money on your energy bills, but round window frames also make your staircase an even bigger focal point – guaranteed to capture the attention of visitors.
Frame the view outside your kitchen
Does your property back on to open fields? Perhaps you have the luxury of a spacious garden or can see the bright lights of the city from your window?
Not everyone is blessed with such views – but if you are, it’s worth installing an arched window or round window frame.
Depending on the layout of your kitchen, you could position it just above the sink, making washing up less of a gruelling task, or near the stove so you can cook and take in the view at the same time.
Make the children’s rooms magical
Looking to add little fairy dust to your children’s nursery? Maybe you want to introduce them to basic shapes early on or create the perfect environment for them to sleep and dream?
Unlike boring square windows, round windows can add character to any playroom, making playtimes more exciting (and beneficial) for the kids.
These circular windows can also be installed at height, allowing your little ones to look up at the stars and moon before bedtime.
Create the illusion of hanging wall art
Some people will pay hundreds of pounds, if not thousands, on stunning pieces of art to decorate their homes – putting them in frames and hanging them on the walls. However, if you’re lucky enough to have scenic views outside your window, you don’t necessarily need to splurge so much.
Instead, you could contact ArcOframe and have round window frames fitted in place of expensive artwork. These will perfectly capture the view of the outdoors whilst encouraging light to enter the room.
