Home Designer Collection Marks First Anniversary

PENSACOLA, FLA - The Home Designer Collection of eclectic decorative glass windows marks its first anniversary in August. Available from Hy-Lite, the impressive privacy windows inspired by designers across the country come in four unique styles: Metro, Mission, Prairie and Baroque.

"Builders and homeowners across the nation have really embraced these designer windows during the past year," says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. "The top selling style is the Prairie window in a 4' x 4' size. We believe the Prairie windows are so popular because they easily complement other Prairie style clear glass windows used in the home --- except these provide privacy.

"Not surprisingly, the unique design of the Baroque window makes it the second most popular style we're selling in the collection. Inspired by classic and modern tiles, the Baroque window is dramatic and memorable in any setting."

Murphy reports that, while the Home Designer Collection windows are available in a multitude of sizes, the large 4' x 4' size has been the best seller in the past year. As indicators of the collection's success, he says strong sales of the privacy windows can be found at Professional Builders Supply in N.C., Contractors Millwork in Miss., and at Builders FirstSource in Texas. Other distributors finding demand for the windows include Lansing Building Products in Va., Magnolia Windows in Ga., and MPC Cashway Lumber in Mich.

Available nationwide, the Home Designer Collection includes vinyl-framed windows with silk-screened designs that enhance the home. Design styles include:

- Prairie - simply elegant, this transitional design is versatile enough to complement a variety of home styles from traditional to contemporary. Created with silkscreened tempered privacy glass and clear lines on the interior and finished with textured privacy glass on the exterior, this window style comes in sizes of 48" x 48", 48" x 12" and 36" x 60".
For all four of the windows, privacy and safety is built into the windows with tempered safety glass on the exterior.

- Metro - inspired by modern architecture with clean lines and a progressive industry feel, this window features a micro-crossreed texture and a bold three-dimensional design. True low-carbon wrought iron and tempered safety glass make this a stand-out window. Available in a 48" x 48" size.

- Mission - a true Craftsman-inspired design, this window is constructed with silkscreened tempered privacy glass and clear diamond shapes on the interior. The fixed unit is finished with textured privacy glass on the exterior and comes in both a 48" x 48" size and a 48" x 12" size.

- Baroque - a dramatic, show-stopping design inspired by classic and modern tile, this window provides a unique way to blend texture into a room. Silkscreened tempered privacy glass with clear lines creates this memorable design, while textured exterior privacy glass provides seclusion. Available in 48" x 48" and 36" x 60" sizes.
