30 Corner Window Ideas With Pros And Cons
Windows are a must for every space, and there are many types of them to consider. Let’s take a look at an innovative and bold feature – a corner window.
What Is A Corner Window?
As the name suggests, the corner window is placed in a corner of the room of the house. Here two windows meet at a corner or edge of a structure. The two adjacent surfaces of the house contain segments of the window which meet at the edge of the surfaces. The edge may or may not be vertically supported by the window frame. This window has two faces in two perpendicular directions. Special lintel has to be cast over the window opening. The jamb post of the window, at the corner, is made of a heavy section. Corner glass window gives undisturbed exterior views and maximum interior light and visibility, particularly if the openings are the full height of the room. This window allows maximum light to enter and can be used as an architectural feature. The corner also needs to be watertight.

The challenge would be to design the structure, as at the junction of the window, it won’t allow any load bearing wall or column, needed to provide structural safety to the house. The corner joint would be again subject to some leakage – such a window is definitely not energy-efficient at all. If these both factors are not dealt with enough seriousness, you may lead into a problem. Therefore, it is advisable to consult an architect or structural engineer. But still all these disadvantages can be overcome if you are looking for a very special decor feature providing undisturbed views. So, will you make such a window in your home?
