Bobby Berk Headquarters: How New Windows Made All The Difference

We made a lot of big updates at the Bobby Berk Headquarters. And one of the biggest changes was an item that was crucial to giving the entire space an updated look (and letting in lots of light). We’re talking about windows – and how choosing the right option enhanced our office, and added plenty of design appeal – inside and out. 

Updating your windows might seem like a major undertaking (and don’t get us wrong, it totally is!) But the right style window can make a huge difference in your home – and be a sound investment. From elevating your interior and exterior appeal to adding extra function (and, of course, light), new windows are clearly a good idea. And we’re about to show you how new windows from Marvin made all the difference at the Bobby Berk headquarters!

The Windows – BEFORE

At first glance, the windows in the home might not seem like a necessary change. Sure, they functioned perfectly fine, but the rust-colored casings and style left much to be desired. In order to really elevate and add function, we knew we wanted to take them to a modern new level. And that meant making some significant overhauls to both the front and rear, from enlarging windows to replacing sliders to more stylish French doors to options that would fold open to allow a seamless connection between indoors and outdoors – all with the help of our friends at Marvin

The Windows We Chose 

With a clear vision of what we wanted to achieve, it came time to select the actual windows. Obviously, there are lots and lots of window manufacturers, styles, and options to choose from, and we needed a brand that understood our objective and would be able to provide customized options to fit the space. And after a few meetings and reviewing options, we knew Marvin had exactly what we were looking for. They not only offer a huge range of styles, sizes (and customization options) but we were also impressed by the quality of their products. The company also focuses not just on how their products look – but also on how they can improve your home, and your well-being (something Bobby has always advocated for).

Since attention to detail and craftsmanship were important (we are designers after all), we decided on Marvin’s Signature Collection Ultimate windows and doors. This line gave us plenty of possibilities to bring our vision to life, with finish options we really loved. Working with the Marvin team, we were able to customize the ultimate casement narrow frame in a number of different sizes for all our window needs. The ebony finish on the exterior and designer black on the interior were just right for creating those clean lines we craved too.

We were especially excited about the very cool arched windows that went into the office area. Once we decided to enclose the balcony area, we knew we wanted to keep the arches intact. And creating custom arched windows with Marvin meant we could do just that -as well as bring way more interest to the front exterior and really flood that room with light during the day. Another favorite? The sliding bi-fold window in the kitchen that allows us to open things up to the backyard.

For doors, we went with the  Ultimate Swinging French Doors in the living room, conference area, and breakfast area of the kitchen. They definitely bring in a level of sophistication and feel more connected to the Spanish style of the house. The conference room also got a very cool Ultimate Bi-Fold door that opens up the entire back wall to the patio (a real must-have for Southern California!)
