In Pakistan, architectural heritage is deeply rooted in tradition, and this is reflected in the intricate designs and patterns found in homes across the country. Wood windows, in particular, have been an essential element of Pakistani architecture, seamlessly merging functionality with aesthetic appeal.

This article explores the rich tapestry of wood window designs in Pakistan, highlighting their significance and the evolving trends in contemporary architecture.

Wood Window Design in Pakistan

Historical Significance

Wooden windows have been an integral part of Pakistani architecture for centuries. Historically, skilled craftsmen meticulously carved delicate patterns on wooden frames, adding an exquisite touch to homes and buildings. These designs often drew inspiration from Islamic art, incorporating geometric patterns, floral motifs, and calligraphy, reflecting the country’s diverse cultural heritage.

Traditional Wood Window Designs

One of the most iconic wood window designs in Pakistan is the ‘Jharoka,’ a projecting balcony supported by ornate brackets and often adorned with intricately carved wooden windows. Jharokas are commonly found in old forts, palaces, and havelis, showcasing the grandeur of Mughal architecture.

Another popular design is the ‘Mashrabiya,’ a type of projecting oriel window enclosed with wooden latticework. Mashrabiya windows not only offer privacy but also allow the flow of air and natural light, making them a practical and visually appealing choice in Pakistan’s hot and sunny climate.

Modern Wood Window Trends

In contemporary Pakistani architecture, wood window designs have adapted to cater to modern sensibilities while preserving the essence of traditional craftsmanship. Architects and designers now incorporate sleek and minimalist wooden frames, focusing on clean lines and simplicity. Moreover, environmentally conscious homeowners are increasingly opting for sustainable wood sources, promoting eco-friendly practices in construction.

Customization and Personalization

One of the significant trends in wood window design in Pakistan is customization. Homeowners are keen on personalized designs that reflect their individual tastes and preferences. From unique geometric patterns to stylized calligraphy, craftsmen are now offering bespoke solutions, ensuring that every wood window is a work of art tailored to the homeowner’s vision.

Integration of Technology

With the advancement of technology, wood window designs in Pakistan have also seen a blend of tradition and innovation. Home automation systems are being integrated with wooden window frames, allowing homeowners to control ventilation, natural light, and privacy with the touch of a button. This seamless integration of technology enhances the functionality of wood windows, making them more convenient and user-friendly.


Wood windows in Pakistan have transcended their traditional roles and evolved into architectural masterpieces that seamlessly blend the past with the present. The rich heritage of intricate designs and patterns continues to inspire modern architects and craftsmen, resulting in wood windows that are not just functional but also aesthetically captivating.

As Pakistan embraces a future where tradition meets innovation, wood window designs will undoubtedly continue to play a pivotal role in shaping the country’s architectural landscape, reflecting the timeless charm and elegance of its cultural heritage.

My technician Andrew replaced all my sash windows that had rotten sills. Accessing the rotten sills was not an easy task. He explained to me what needed to be done in order to fix the problem. He is a great person and I’m happy that he was the one who did the job. He is reliable, tidy, friendly and very professional. I highly recommend him.



I hired Andrew and Alex a while back to repair my damaged sash windows. They were was very considerate and very patient as he did his job. A few days ago, I had another problem with one of my sash lock keys and I called him again to come and fix the problem. I’m very impressed that Liam responded quickly and he not only fixed the problem but he also gave me a spare key. What a great after sales service!

I’m very impressed with the new windows that Andrew installed and also the reconditioning job that he did on other sash windows. The quality of his work is by far more superior than what we got when we hired another company a few years back. We will certainly hire him again if any window work arises

Our decorator referred us to Andrew because some of the work needed a window expert. Andrew together with our decorator did a fantastic job. The work was done efficiently and to the highest standards. Andrew is understanding, committed and very professional. I recommend him without any hesitation.

Alex did a great job in fixing windows in our terraced house. The windows were broken, frames damaged and the wood was also rotten. Alex's job was high quality and he did it pretty fast. I was also very impressed that he was considerate of my son’s asthma condition and maintained cleanliness. Top work.



Andrew just recently replaced three sash windows in my Edwardian house. He also repaired and replaced some sills and draught proofed three windows. In addition to that, he also did some carpentry work. What I like the most about Liam is that he did a clean job. He is very professional and always updated me about the timescales and costs. He also did his job with minimal disruptions. I highly recommend him.
