How to choose the right window style for your home

There are many different window styles to choose from, both modern and traditional, so choosing the right window style for your home might seem overwhelming. Read more about the benefits and limitations of the main window styles below to help decide which window style is best for you.

Benefits and limitations of the main window styles

Flush-fit window

Flush fit windows perfectly blend the modern with the traditional. As their name suggests, they sit flush to the exterior structure making them extremely sleek and visually appealing. Traditionally manufactured in timber, we provide our flush fit windows in uPVC making them available in a wide range of colours and finishes, including wood-effect.

Vertical sliding windows

Vertical sliding windows are a traditional and timeless option, offering traditional detailing with slim sashes and optional decorative horns and Georgian bars to replicate traditional timber sliding sash windows. Adjustable restrictors can fix the aperture openings meaning that you can grant your home that much needed ventilation in the summer, without compromising on security. 

Tilt and turn windows

Tilt and turn windows are the most popular window style in Europe due to their flexible functionality. They can open by tilting inwards at the top, offering a secure ventilation option, or they can open by turning inwards to offer a wide opening for emergency exit. They are extremely practical and therefore used in a wide variety of both commercial and residential properties. 

Casement windows

Casement windows are a versatile option which can be made to fit almost any window aperture. They open outwards, away from the home, and are most commonly side-hung. Casement windows are commonly available in both uPVC and aluminium. 

In conclusion, there are a variety of window styles available and the style you choose will depend mostly on the functionality of the windows. Do your windows need to function as an emergency exit? Do you require high levels of ventilation or is energy efficiency your main concern? Also consider the style of your property, and whether a modern flush fit window would be preferable to a traditional vertical slider.
