Round window – aesthetics of classical French architecture
History of architecture
“Oeil-de-bouef” or round windows appeared in France in the 16th century, after which they smoothly moved to English lands. Philosophers say that history is cyclical and they are partly right. Round windows are gaining more and more popularity every day, especially in private houses. They are both original and classic windows. These windows are a chic solution combining the beauty of the facade and the elegance of individual decor elements. Lovers of the classics take home design seriously and take round windows with a wooden frame, bringing tribute to high culture. Any guest who sees round wooden-framed windows will be amazed at their beauty. Such windows are a chic decoration that will make your home stand out in front of others.
Round window in modern architecture
Nowadays, round windows are the ideal option for a person who appreciates the classic style and adores expensive home furnishings. Let’s be honest – such windows are really very attractive and make you look back and smile from its design beauty. Agree, modern rectangular windows cannot even be compared with a round window. Over time, the production of round windows has changed a lot, ranging from changing the style of windows to the quality of materials. High quality materials, double glazing, a wide choice of window designs are used in the creation.
Benefits of round wooden windows
1. Wood is a natural, environmentally friendly material. The main thing is not to deprive it of this property, using varnishes and impregnations of dubious quality.
2. Service life, depending on the breed, is not less than 30 years. Products made of oak or larch – up to 100 years old.
3. High degree of noise absorption and thermal insulation.
The disadvantage of wooden windows is that wood requires periodic renewal of the paintwork. For budget varnishes, this period is about seven years, premium mixtures will last 25 years or more.
