Don’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?

You’re welcome to post your link here, only your first link does not work. I’m not a fan of everything on your site, but the desk and bar are quite original.
As accurately mentioned in the article above, steel profiles indeed allow for much more viewing area than the typical wood, vinyl or aluminum window. With more and more architects and designers being asked to build a space encompassing an open floor plan with an abundance of natural light, steel is by far the ideal solution. Although the initial investment of steel windows and doors may have an impact on the client’s decision to close, the long term savings of a thermally broken steel profile or the reassurance that their frames will undoubtedly last for years and years to come supersedes that quickly. Furthermore, with numerous types of quality steels; such as bronze, corten, stainless and many more, the ability to match traditional, industrial, rustic or even modern and contemporary styles is easily achievable.
As a leader in the steel window and door industry for over 44 years, we are confident we can find the perfect fit for any project. For more information or pricing, don’t hesitate to contact us.
