The dining room is a gathering place for family and friends. The focus may be the food and conversation, but windows also have a an enormous effect on the setting. If the classic large vertical windows are not providing enough character for your dining room, consider these three Marvin replacement windows that are sure to be conversation starters.
Add more sides
Marvin offers a number of polygon windows, including triangles, pentoids, hexagons, octagons and trapezoids. They are even available in the StormPlus models for those who live in coastal areas. These fun shapes will be sure to draw the eyes of all your dinner guests. The polygon windows come in all sizes, but be sure not to pick anything too small or you will be limiting the natural light that shines in. Alternatively, consider installing a uniquely shaped accent window to complement your existing ones.
Light up a corner
If you're looking to bring a lot of sunlight in your dining room and offer a more immersive view, look into Marvin's corner windows. Not only will this give the room a unique look, it will also provide a place for diners to gather when they are mingling before mealtime. Additionally, this style of window can improve home security by allowing a second viewing angle.
Go for round
A truly unique option Marvin offers is its rotary window. If you are comfortable with installing a smaller accent window in your dining room that stands out, look no further. The rotary window is a circular window that spins a full 360 degrees, opens at any point in the rotation and can be adjusted anywhere from a sliver to a half circle. This provides homeowners with the perfect window that can take full advantage of weather conditions. Imagine being able to leave the window open even when it is raining.
All of Marvin's window options come in various sizes and finishes. Be sure to consider the rest of the home design and decor when picking out a unique window. The goal is to make the dining room stand out and shine, not stick out like a sore thumb. Some of the more special shapes offered will require creative blinds or curtains. Be sure to pick out the right coverings to go with your dining room. The simple addition of a unique window can add more character to your home without costing a fortune.
