Window Ideas to Let the Outside In
This home by Rosmond features tall custom windows by Jason Windows.
If you’re building a new home, your windows are a lot more than just a few panes of glass. They visually bring the outdoors in, letting in natural light and expanding your outlook to connect with nature and the wider world.
Windows have a significant impact on the lightness and brightness, the security, the energy efficiency and the look and feel of your home.
If you’re fortunate enough to be building a new home on a site with spectacular views, it’s absolutely crucial that your home designer frames your views through the well-considered design of your windows.
Windows that Reach for the Sky
Rosmond’s design team used windows to create a contemporary architectural style statement.
The design team at Rosmond Custom Homes worked with Jason Windows to create these soaring custom windows in the entry of this coastal home at Sorrento with stunning sea views to Hillarys Boat Harbour and beyond.
Rosmond’s architectural designer and draftsman Noorudeen Khan said two 61-course high windows to the entry provided abundant light, while 27-course high windows that extend 17.5m around the home provided 180 degree views of the ocean.
Upstairs, a combination of big windows and full height sliding glass doors opening onto a viewing terrace from the kitchen and living areas offer further vantage points for taking in the ocean vistas.
Window Styles for Your New Home

The way windows operate is just as important as their shape, size and style. Rosmond’s window supplier Jason Windows is renowned for high quality aluminium windows that are smooth operators!
There are four main styles of windows:
- Sliding windows. Sliding windows operate with a horizontal sliding motion on tracks. Sliding windows by Jason Windows are the number one choice with Western Australian homeowners. Jason’s famous Breezelock security feature includes three locking positions so you can safely let in a gentle breeze or a cleansing rush of fresh air for just the level of ventilation you prefer.
- Awning windows. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open from the bottom to let in the fresh air while keeping out the elements.
- Fixed windows. Fixed windows are fixed and are used in various applications where opening the window is not necessary or appropriate.
- Double hung windows. Double hung windows are the classic style consisting of two panes that slide up and down to let in the fresh air. This is the style typically seen in heritage homes but its modern version in aluminium suits contemporary homes as well.
