2. Do porthole windows open?

Yes – here at ArcOframe, we create porthole windows that can be easily opened and closed. When open, they permit light and fresh air to enter and provide a strong, water-tight and weather-tight barrier when closed.

All our porthole windows are fitted with adjustable friction and safety restrictors as standard, and optional lockable catches are available if you’d like to add an extra layer of security to your home.

3. Where are porthole windows installed?

A porthole window can transform a plain room into a unique space, creating the illusion of being on a cruise ship. Many people use them in the home as a focal point, whilst others use them as artwork to frame the view of outdoors – be it a beautiful lake or the bright lights of the city.

Bathrooms tend to be the most popular location for porthole windows as they let a lot of light in. But this isn’t to say you can’t use them in the living room, kitchen, bedrooms – or even on the ceiling to brighten up a dark or dull space! Porthole windows also look great when they’re used to line the walls of a staircase. They draw light in and create the illusion of more space.
