Architect’s toolbox: 3 window details that wow

There are millions of window options in the market. How to choose your window and how to use details to realize the wow look is crucial. Please check out today’s blog to catch three key elements of stylish window.

Low sills (meaning the bottom of the window is closer to the floor line) create windows that tend to have the proportions of doors. Using lower sills also can make a smaller room feel much larger.

Tall heads (meaning the top of the window is closer to the ceiling line) provide much the same visual impact as lower sills. You can place the sill within inches of the floor line. All that’s needed is just a bit of space for trim and to make cleaning a little easier.
