How To Identify The Correct Windows For Your Home

How To Identify The Correct Windows For Your Home

We know from our experience that certain window styles work better with some property types more than others.

How gutted would you feel if you were to choose windows that looked completely wrong with your house!

Ensure that doesn’t happen and listen to our advice on window buying for each of the three main forms of house that you commonly find in Britain.

Period properties

Heritage buildings and cottages all have unique character and you don’t want to lose that. So, any window replacement at them needs to be done sensitively.

We have a variety of window products that will sustain their character, one of them being sliding sash windows, a design that’s existed for generations. They mimic the traditional styling of a sliding sash window, but offer modern performance.

Orion also stocks cottage windows, which include elegant glazing bars, a trademark feature of windows typically used in heritage residences.

Modern homes

Want to upgrade windows at a new-build house for the first time or just need new windows that will retain its modern appeal? Eclipse Aluminium Windows are worth a look.

They’re some of the slimmest windows you will ever see, with an unbelievably trim profile and large mass of glass, which will add so much light indoors.

The colour options for Eclipse are extensive and perfectly on-trend, and they are powder-coated onto the frames to make the finish really stand out.

20th Century home

Don’t live in a period house or one that could be classed as modern? This will expand your options as virtually any window style should work.

This puts the onus on you to determine what window style is most to your liking and what you would prefer your windows to offer.

Bay and bow windows are bursting with personality and will give a room added depth, or you might want to go for a classic window design and order casement windows – they’re always a sound choice.
