Where can porthole windows be installed in the home?

Porthole windows are commonplace on ships and barges – but that’s not to say they can’t be enjoyed on dry land too!

A porthole window for the house provides a fantastic alternative to traditional square and rectangular windows, creating a quirky architectural feature and giving your home a new lease of life, inside and out. But where’s the best place to install a porthole window?

  1. Bathrooms

Porthole windows are a must-have if you’re wanting to add a touch of maritime flair to your bathroom. No matter how big or small your shower room or en-suite is, our porthole windows are an excellent choice and enable you to transform an otherwise boring space into something beautiful.

  1. Kitchens

If you’re working with a neutral or monochromatic palette, a stand out feature can really help to complete the look – and what better way than with porthole windows?  The kitchen is one room where you can’t afford to have poor lighting – especially when handling sharp knives and various other kitchen tools. The more light you have, the better you can show off design elements, and our porthole windows let more light in and can frame the view above the kitchen sink. We can also adapt them to suit the style of the room.

  1. Bedrooms

Looking for a fun diversion from the norm? Porthole windows can accentuate a theme and create a brand new look, especially effective in kid’s rooms – providing the perfect setting for imaginative play. They also make a wonderful focal point in master bedrooms.

  1. Landing/hallways

A well-placed porthole window can help prevent a narrow passage feeling confined and brighten up the space to create the illusion of more space. Our windows can line your landing or hallway – letting more natural light into your home and enhancing the beauty of your staircase.

  1. Ceilings

A porthole window isn’t just great at eye level. Add one to the ceiling and make the most of natural light. This could also help to reduce your electricity bills.

The best thing about porthole windows for homes is that they can be combined with any conventional style.
