Ddon’t you just love the elegance of steel windows? Once upon a time only found in old industrial buildings, they have been moving into our homes more and more. The strong steel makes it possible to make the mullions so much more smaller, creating larger areas for the (sun)light to shine through. Steel windows are beautiful in both modern and traditional architecture, as you can see in the images below.

The only “bugger” is that they cost three times more than traditional wooden frames… but I think it’s worth it, don’t you?
