An Overview Of Our Specialty Windows

An Overview Of Our Specialty Windows

Specialty windows are a salute to the unofficial interior designers in the home. The one with the creative vision, who can survey a room with a quick glance and know its full potential.

Or, maybe you’re the kind of person who likes to go against the grain. You don’t go for what’s “traditional” or “trendy”; you want different or unique. Or, maybe you’ve been at home enough that you are looking to change up your space.

Whatever the reason may be, Kempenfelt Windows and Doors is here to lend a hand with your creative vision. In this blog, we will be taking a look at some of the specialty windows we offer.

But First… What Makes A Specialty Window?

A specialty window is a custom-made window designed to suit your creativity and the needs of your home. Whether that means an uncommon shape or size, a specialty window simply means that it is outside the typical appearance and design of a traditional window. Specialty windows can be combined with traditionally styled windows or they can be a standalone feature if you want to draw attention to your design.


Our Specialty Windows

With 25 years of experience, we offer a wide range of styles, designs, and shapes for your specialty windows. Here’s a look at the few we offer:

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are a popular choice that provide easy access for opening and closing. Horizontal sliding windows are referred to as “sliding windows.” Sliding windows are an excellent choice if your specialty window will be in areas of limited space, close to exterior walkways, or close to living spaces near a window.

Arch Windows

An arch window (also called a radius window) appears much like how it sounds, where the top of the window appears circular and that of an arch, while the bottom of the window is rectangular. An arch window can be tall like a casement window or wide like an awning window. An arch window is an excellent way of creating a dramatic effect in modern and Victorian homes.

Transom Window

Transom windows were created to allow natural light into rooms even when doors are shut. They were developed in Europe in the 14th century long before the creation of air conditioning. Typically, they are located over a window or door’s transom, the beam that separates the top of the window or door from the rest of the wall. Transom windows can come in varied shapes or sizes but keep the name due to the location. Typically, transom windows are designed not to open, just because they are usually above a door or a window.
