From contemporary to traditional to totally unique, windows designed to match your style

Audience: Consumer

Wausau, Wis. (Jan. 2013) – You've carefully considered the color of your walls, the height of your ceiling, the nap of your carpet, the pattern of your couch, and the perennials in bloom. Each choice represents your design tastes and proclaims your personal style. Why would your windows be any different?

As your eyes communicate the vitality within you, your windows speak to the vibrancy within your home. Each window can be as individual as you are. Whether looking for unique sizes, unusual shapes, rare wood species, colorful finishes, finely-crafted glass or universal design hardware, Kolbe's built-to-order options help make nearly every vision a reality.

Sleek and Contemporary

For the clean lines of Modern design, homeowners with contemporary palettes gravitate toward large glass expanses in neat, narrow frames. Illustrating this aesthetic during the 2013 International Builders' Show, Kolbe's Ultra Series 90-degree wall display unit is comprised of Beveled Direct Set windows and awnings. The interior is neatly framed in maple and the exterior is clad with aluminum with a clear anodized finish for a sleek appearance. 

Asymmetrical panels may be configured into Mondrian compositions. Windows can replace walls in cubist design schemes. Bauhaus grid patterns can be stacked wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling. Blending art and architecture, distinctive designs deserve to have an audience.

Warm and Traditional

Divided lites, substantial frames and rich finishes set the tone for classic sophistication. From a traditional-styled Majesta® double hung to a Gothic arch-topped casement, Kolbe's windows announce a luxurious grandeur of past eras. Keystones, pediment heads and corner blocks can define your signature look.

Exemplifying the mantra, "form follows function," Kolbe's Sterling double hung window combines cottage style proportions with simple operation. Wood covers conceal the jambliners, bringing the window's appearance up to the level of fine furniture. Hardware finishes, finely crafted glass, transoms and other options can be requested to add historical authenticity.

Unique and Undefined

For those who defy categorization, Kolbe can create custom solutions to bring your ideas to life. Like the jewels on a crown, diamonds, triangles, octagons, hexagons, pentagons, trapezoids and ovals can accent the shapes and spaces of your home. Tinted, colored, patterned, beveled, etched and other glass selections can subtly establish privacy or loudly call for attention. Wood species can be harvested across the globe, from cherry orchards to pine forests to bamboo fields. Finishes can match contemporary and historical palettes, country landscapes and urban vistas, and a full spectrum of hues. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
