Such an important element of any room is the window -Now again in the spotlight. The mass of new technological and design solutions make it possible to use it in an interior not as before. We break the stereotypes - the most elegant and spectacular examples of the use of windows in modern apartments and houses Over the centuries of its existence, windows have come a long way - from the just necessary to protect from the cold construction to almost the central element of the interior. Earlier they were selected for this or that stylistic design of the room, but now everything is different. The number of modern design solutions, based not even on technology, but on visual beauty, is really huge. We have chosen 20 attractive ideas, proving that today not windows are chosen for the interior, but more often vice versa. Traditions of countries In order to appreciate sucha global change in the approach to windows, it is worth paying attention to the peculiarities of European and global construction. Previously, the climate and mentality of the population always came to the fore, therefore, in the old houses of certain countries, their own national tradition can be traced. In Italy, for example, arched windows are used, and in France, large, full-wall windows are very popular. The Central Asian style is characterized by lancet window openings, brightly and richly decorated. Now the accents were changed and the mass appearedOpportunities for combining in the interior of the most successful solutions based on centuries-old world traditions. With the help of specialists - not only technologists, but also designers - you can decorate windows in any way, in any style. For our country, in view of weather conditions, the closest is the Scandinavian one, characterized by massive bindings and high light-transmitting capacity. Taking it as a basis and adding, for example, bright colors and elegant shapes, you can create a truly unique interior where windows become the dominant element. Russian windows For practical and reliabledesigns that are traditional in Sweden, Finland and even Germany, new applications can be found in modern Russia. Cold winters and hot summers, typical for our climate, dictate their conditions in terms of windows. But a lot of attention is paid to the issues of their design. The tradition of log houses, known in Russia, also presupposes rich, colorful exterior decoration of windows, which have always been small in size. Now they are also popular, they use special colors, paneled frames and crossbars. The trends of our time are as follows:apartments are becoming lighter, and this leads to the desire to install not small windows, but large-scale panoramic structures, which are distinguished primarily by their beauty. That is, we are witnessing a vivid example of mixing styles, when European quality, multiplied by design, leads to an excellent result. And most importantly, this desire goes "to the masses" - more and more often during construction, we focus on windows. To create a Hi-Tech interior, the latest model is suitable. Design features in modern windowsExtensive, you can create anything you like, while not losing in the functionality of their main purpose - sound and heat insulation. Non-standard opening mechanisms, amazing shapes that come from different countries, as well as innovative solutions can add freshness and beauty to the interior. Therefore, it is windows that can set the style of the interior, as there are really many variations of their use, and today there is such a tendency that the design of the apartment, office or house begins from the windows. Refusal of curtains Until recently, window openingstried to cover it with curtains. Now the use of curtains is increasingly being abandoned, since modern solutions visually attract designers much more. And this can be called, neither more nor less, a revolutionary decision. Avoiding curtains will be a really good solution if you like the view from the window - of the park, river, square, the lights of the night city. The main condition is that you like the panorama where the gaze will constantly fall. Then any design innovations in the design will be in place. Colored windows Windows of different colors are appliedquite a long time ago. This is one of the most powerful traditional techniques that has made windows more architecturally interesting. Indeed, in this way they are able to form a style coloristic solution for the entire interior as a whole. In this case, the colored window will resemble a baguette that frames the landscape, making the view outside the window look like a picture of a talented painter. Editorial opinion: - For example, the windows in the buildings of Austrian workshops are designed in this way and attract a lot of attention. And everyone knows about the Hundertwasser houses in Vienna, which have about 150 different window designs. Even the famous architect Otto Wagner - the founder of the Austrian style - is known for his signature green window technique. At the junction of design and technology, there are alsooptions when design is combined with technology. As in cars, when the harmonious appearance combines the perfection of style and innovation. For some projects frosted glass is chosen, for others - transparent, but there are situations when you want the window to change its appearance. The absolutely fantastic comes to the rescuea solution that radically changes the design of the entire room: the use of liquid crystal technology, capable of making the glass completely opaque and opaque at the request of the user. This idea is suitable for studio apartments, and not only for a street window, but also as a partition between the bedroom and bathroom, kitchen and hallway. And of course, PRIVATE GLASS is widely used in offices - for meeting rooms or other private areas. Editorial opinion: - But the future is not far off, and technical progress, coupled with an innovative approach to design, does not stand still. Probably, after a while, accents and priorities in the context of windows will change again. Already today, the company's lineup includes models that are capable of displaying information about the situation outside the window directly onto a double-glazed window. This function is provided thanks to the built-in weather indicator. Perhaps the windows of the future will be frameless structures that let in much more sunlight and can be opened using smart home technologies or via a smartphone app. One has only to dream a little, and any wish will come true!
