Choosing the right style of windows for your home might seem challenging. But, with so many styles, colours and finishes to choose from, you can give your home natural kerb appeal. As a uPVC window supplier, we can help you find your ultimate window style so read on to find out how.

What’s your architectural style?


Is your home ultra-modern or beautifully traditional? A classic mullioned window will look totally out of place in a contemporary home, so let the architectural style of your property guide your choice.


For example, smaller casement windows fit the look if you live in a cosy cottage. Whereas Georgian and Victorian properties feature multi-paned sash windows. If you want to update your home, consider tilt-and-turn windows that can open from the side or the top for flexible ventilation.


What’s the purpose of your windows?


If you want to link indoors and outdoors effortlessly, consider bi-folding doors. On the other hand, French doors and casement windows will flood your rooms with natural light when space is limited. Or you may have a gloomy corner that you could enhance with a beautiful bow or bay window.


You could also consider using solar tubes and light wells to add natural light when an opening window isn’t feasible.


Think about ventilation


We’ve become increasingly aware of the need to ventilate our homes. Casement windows are an enduringly popular choice because they’re easy to operate and suit any architectural style. Or opt for tilt and turn mechanisms if space is limited. Sash windows are another practical and stylish choice that can look surprisingly at home on a modern facade.


Create a focal point


If you want to create a design feature, replacement windows are a great way of adding drama and impact to a room. Bi-folding doors are a fantastic choice if you want to frame a spectacular view with a glass wall. But sliding or French doors can also help you to bring the outdoors indoors and may be a better choice when space is limited.


A bay or bow window can look super-stylish, adding more floor space and a useful nook in your living room or kitchen. Consider adding finishing touches like Georgian Bars, leadwork and coloured glazing to customise the look.


Consider finish and colour


With modern uPVC replacement windows, you can customise the finish and colour to suit any home. 


Crisp white is timeless, while black and anthracite never go out of fashion. Heritage colours, including blue, green and grey, are perfect for a period property. If you prefer the look and feel of timber, woodgrain finishes are indistinguishable from the real thing without the maintenance.
