BENEFITS OF RADIUS WINDOWS
In an arch-top or radius window, the bottom half of the window is rectangular while the top is an arch or half-circle adding architectural interest to a room.
Symmetrical circle windows can act as a focal point in bathrooms, entryways, stairways, and closets while providing natural light.
Radius Windows FAQ
Also called architecturally shaped windows or specialty windows, radius windows boast a unique look, like a half-moon, eyebrow, or archtop shape.
Homeowners looking to add some curb appeal to their home often install different variations of radius windows. Due to their uniqueness, they have a “wow” factor that many homeowners crave.

Most manufacturers will work with you if want a specific shape. If you don’t see the shape you’re looking for in the manufacturer’s literature, ask the company’s sales representative if they fabricate specific shapes.
