Corner French Casements

Corner French Casements

Nothing opens up a room like corner windows.  They provide that much more light and a panoramic view of the scenery.  Whether in the corner of a kitchen or an expansive sunroom, they make a powerful statement.

The only loss when wrapping windows around a room is wall space.  I feel they should be used purposefully where they will make the most impact.   Often opening up two or more walls with glass requires special structural considerations.  Without walls to support the roof or floor above, we sometimes need steel posts and special connections to prevent the structure from wracking.  The same is true when we design a screened porch.

While not for every room, corner windows have a place in the designer’s pallet that we often use.

    Talent exudes from every project you’ve done. It is obvious that you painstakingly look at each detail. Do you have an in-house interior decorator you use or someone who you can recommend?

    We often work with interior designers or the homeowners. Our clients do bring their favorite interior designer into the collaboration.
