Explore Awning and Hopper Designs

You might also want to look into alternatives to the classic sash window (if this is what you start with). There are numerous window designs for homes, including awning (top- or bottom-hinged) and hopper (bottom-hinged) styles.

Opulent Purple

Purple is a luxurious color associated with royalty and power, but you don’t often see it around windows. It can therefore look rather quirky and bohemian, while also adding an air of grandeur to your home interior or exterior.

Striking Minimalism

Classic black and white might not seem all that adventurous, but it brings a timeless sense of style to any home window design. However, because it has a cooling effect, it may be most appropriate for the bathroom.

Eye-Catching Mullions

There’s no reason to limit your window designs to basic square mullion designs. Plenty of alternatives exist that can serve as strong focal points in and of themselves, such as diamond-shaped mullions.
