Embrace the industrial look

The industrial look is making a comeback and it’s not just inside where these iconic industrial touches look great. If your windows are due for an upgrade, an aluminium frame might be exactly what you’re looking for. Aluminium windows really look the part on modern and more traditional properties. That being said, this window type is loved for more than just its good looks, as doityourself.com puts it:

“One of the biggest advantages of aluminium is that it’s very light but still strong. It’s durable and doesn’t require much maintenance, especially with a factory-baked or anodized finish. If you have windows with unusual shapes, you might consider aluminium because it can easily be manipulated into the shape you need.”

Go bright and bold

Coloured window frames have grown in popularity in recent years. In fact, they’re so popular now that they’ve been the subject of another recent blog post. With a variety of shades and styles available, coloured window frames are a trend that looks set to stay.

Pretty pastel tones, particularly pale greens, mauves and baby blues, are great choices for classic properties. Owners of contemporary properties may want to go brighter and bolder, with shades of red, green, and blue.

Not everyone wants their window upgrades to be especially creative or striking. Keeping it classic is a timeless trend that most people can enjoy. Black frames are a great option, whilst wood finishes provide an authentic look and feel that complements a vast number of properties.

Maximise natural light

Small, pokey windows are so last summer! This year the focus is on maximising light within homes and in turn establishing a strong indoor-outdoor connection. What better way to do that than with a window upgrade? We supply a number of great window and door designs that provide even better access to natural light. The slimmer profiles of our aluminium frames will help to maximise the amount of light coming in as well as make the most of those views outside.

Accessorise your windows

In fashion, accessories have the power to make or break an ensemble. This sentiment is also true when it comes to your windows. Giving your windows the attention they deserve is important. Using window dressing to incorporate the latest trends will uphold your window’s aesthetic appeal long after window upgrade has been completed. Use natural window treatments such as blinds and shades made from bamboo and woven cotton. You could also try textured curtains with small embellishments for a more luxurious finish.

Make sure your windows are on trend from season to season with timeless, quality window designs fitted by our experts. Call us today to discuss your requirements.
