There’s a Midwest configuration to equal even the most creative imagination. Whatever your taste, you can combine standard units with many custom sizes. Mix and match to your heart’s content.
Select an elegant radius picture unit for a majestic entryway, or add pizzazz with half rounds, quarter rounds, octagons, or other geometric shapes. Take a traditional single unit and create a unique design by using a trapezoid, triangle or elliptical on top of it!
Picture windows add a look of distinction
Let the light flood in with the contemporary styling of Midwest Thermal-Break picture windows. Nothing creates an atmosphere like the expansive brilliance of large glass areas. Combine them with other operating Midwest windows and design character into your home. Thermal-Break windows with insulating glass ensure a comfortable energy efficient environment in any living area.
This a formula that offers builders and renovators design expression with conformity. The strength and simple elegance of the S-3025 Picture or Geometric will truly expand the horizon. Combine with a vented single-hung or slider for a fresh-air creation.
Looking for a classic window design? Consider the traditional style of the Midwest replacement single hung (S-3000) and slider (S-4000) windows.
