Shaped windows are any windows that are not the standard rectangular shape you see on most UK homes. While different shapes are not uncommon in Britain, unusual window shapes like circles, triangles or raked windows require more intricate work and techniques to create them.

Choose from a Range of Shaped Windows


Square Windows

Square windows are often fixed so they don’t open, so the design limits are endless. With different colours and decorative glass options, you can create some pretty special designs that make for a stunning feature window. Cottage and Georgian bars are a popular option for square windows, producing a classic architectural feature for a period property.


Circular Windows

Circular windows are a fantastic choice for new builds and renovations alike. Popular in bathrooms and entrance halls, they can equally be a striking centrepiece in a living or dining room. Round windows create a focal point – a new shape in a home otherwise filled with square and rectangular shaped windows and walls.


Triangular Windows

Triangle windows, also known as slating windows, gable windows or raked windows, are fixed windows shaped like a triangle. Their distinct shape creates a talking point when added above or to the side of rectangular windows, and especially as standalone windows. Flood your room with light and achieve unique views by adding an impressive triangular gable window. With so many sizes and angles to choose, create a look that makes your home one of a kind.

Other Window Shapes

We also offer raked windows, sometimes called trapezoid windows, which can be made with transoms to create separate panes. Gothic arch windows can add drama and compliment very old homes. We also have a wide selection of curved windows, which are rectangular windows with one curved corner.

Fixed Window Shapes

Our shaped windows are fixed into place so they cannot be opened. This means that we have a wider variety of shapes available to choose from. The more complicated the window shape, the more complex its hinges and locking mechanisms would be.

Your Questions Answered by us

What is a circular window?

A circular window is a double-glazed circle-shaped window with fixed panes, so it does not open. Circular windows are an alternative to the traditional rectangular windows. Handcrafted in our Norwich factory, Anglian uPVC circular windows are specially made to the size that you require and can be personalised with decorative glass.

How much do gable end windows cost?

Gable end windows are often triangular, but can also be raked. Like most window shapes, triangular gable windows or raked windows often cost more than standard rectangular windows. This is due to the extra labour and more intricate process it takes to create them. The cost of gable window is further affected by their size and material. They also require building work too, so this will factor in the cost too.

What is an eyebrow window?

An eyebrow window is an arched window that is wider than it is tall, the look like little eyes protruding from roofs of the older buildings they often sit in. It is for this reason they are sometimes called an eyebrow dormer, in the UK you often find them in larger thatched cottages. Today, they are most popular in America, though you can find some examples in the UK.

Can you open round windows?

You can get round windows that open as well as fixed round windows, it just depends on the style you get and the company you go through. Round windows that open often require specialist, bespoke opening mechanisms, making them more expensive than fixed. Our round windows are only offered as fixed units, which means greater design flexibility for you and makes them more affordable.

What is an Oriel style window?

An oriel window is like a bay window, but it juts out from the wall. Cantilevers or corbels joined to an external wall support the structure, instead of walls linked to the ground. In the past they improved views on narrow streets, often so people could see down to the sea. Modern oriel bay windows sit on the ground floor, first or second floors, and sometimes even span two floors. We offer oriel windows, but we call them plant-on windows.
