What window for my decor?
Straight or curved lines, shapes, colors ... The bay windows participate fully the style of your interior and your facade. Let yourself be seduced!
To choose a new windowit's better to isolate yourself from the cold and the noise, to save energy and to gain brightness thanks to finer profiles. But it's also a bias aesthetic.

Aluminum for a contemporary note
It has its place in a renovation project. Its straight and sleek design contrast nicely with traditional building materials like stone or brick. We appreciate it for the extreme delicacy of its lines, who offers maximum light gain. The aluminum windows are like frames opening on the outside space. For a minimalist aesthetic, put on straight profiles rather than curved and opt for swinging windows with hidden opening : the opening parts of the bay are invisible from the outside because they are hidden behind the "frame" of the window. Result : definitely finer lines.

The nobility of wood
Authentic and warm, wood we isolate naturally cold and noise. Stable and resistant, it allows to achieve windows of different styles and formats.
