Corners often tend to be the most neglected spaces in any room. Furthermore, we tend to push in a small table or pile of shelves that make it more cluttered over weeks and months. The corner windows are small elements of design that can make a huge difference in a space design and breathe life into dead corners. The corner window is a world unto itself when segued with gorgeous views and seating. Though some may not operate, they do offer a contemporary, clean aesthetic. They are essentially a single unit created by two or more sashes that meet and span both sides of a building. An opening with no corner support requires a particular framing method for a corner window.

By eliminating large support structures one can open up the entire area to sweeping panoramas, capturing light from multiple directions whilst maintaining a clean, modern aesthetic. Transparent, pristine glass provides these corner windows with an unparalleled aesthetic value. In addition, corner windows save space, to pack a punch with storage without blocking windows. As a result, the design style of these windows has a powerful and unique appeal embodying minimalism, lesser ornamentation, neat facades and simplified forms. Be it from the inside and the outside, these windows fit seamlessly into the architectural language of any building.

Corner windows can tilt, turn, tilt and turn and even slide. However, the critical consideration for installing a corner window is the layout, orientation of the property on the plot and how the house fits into its surroundings. Additionally, incorporating a corner window early in the design framework is crucial due to the extra structural work required to accommodate an unsupported corner, including hidden steelwork in the ceiling. Since corner windows tend to be more expensive than standardised windows, the cost is another important consideration when choosing these fenestration types. The steelwork required to secure, frameless glass-to-glass corner windows will also increase the price of these features compared to framed ones.

The types of corner windows available today vary according to the design or architectural demand. For instance, adding a frameless glass-to-glass corner window to an extension of a renovated or newly built home does add a ‘wow factor. Whether it’s full-height glass-to-glass corner windows or sliding doors, or frames with window seats paired with standard height frames, frameless corner windows have become increasingly versatile over the years.
