If you’re considering buying new windows for your home or business, this could be a chance to create a fresh look and give your property extra kerb appeal. Some property owners stick with their current style, but others take the opportunity to add some more character. 

With so many window styles available, should you pick just one design or can you mix and match? Here’s our expert advice.

Replacing Your Windows with a New Design

When homeowners decide to replace their windows, it’s not unusual to opt for the same type you’ve always had. Some see it as a risk to change something that works, but you need to think about whether your existing windows work for you. Upgrading the windows can eliminate many of the issues faced with older designs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think about the ideal look and functionality you want. 


There are lots of different window types available, with sash windows, casement windows, bay windows, tilt and turn designs, fixed pane windows and timber window alternatives being some of the most popular choices.

Mixing Different Window Styles

When it comes to the way your windows look, keeping some uniformity throughout the design is a good idea. For example, you may want to keep the frame colours the same, choose one material (e.g. uPVC or aluminium) or opt for Georgian bars as a feature. There are many ways to customise windows to get the look you desire, including chamfered or ovolo profiles, different paint finishes and hardware. 


Our advice for mixing designs is to stick to an overall theme which enhances the style of your property. You can then build up a picture of the best type of windows for each space. While choosing one style can help create a sense of unity around the home, don’t feel you can’t branch out in some areas if there’s a good reason to.

Windows with Ideal Functionality for Your Home

Rather than mixing window designs for the sake of it, one of the aspects you need to consider is the functionality you want. So, while you may stick to one style such as uPVC casement windows, you could look at different configurations to help make each space become as practical as possible. This includes top and side hung windows, as well as the most suitable glazing, such as frosted glass for bathrooms. You could also choose bay or bow windows for expansive glazed areas in your front bedroom and lounge.
