Choosing your home or business premises’ windows is a big deal. The style of the windows can have a huge effect on the property in terms of kerb appeal and aesthetics, but they can also boost its value and improve the energy efficiency.
There are a lot of current window trends that home and business owners are currently enjoying, and we’ve explored a few of our favourites below.
It’s thought that the design of the sash window was invented as early as the 13th century, when sliding wooden shutters created a ‘window’ – albeit a lot less sophisticated than today’s models! Sash windows became the staple trend throughout the Georgian and Victorian period, and these days people are opting for that classic look and quality feel, not just in period properties, but in new homes, too. If you’re looking for windows that will stand the test of time as well as ever changing fashions, sash windows are a great choice.
Wood grain effect windows
While wooden windows are undeniably attractive, they tend to be incredibly expensive and require more maintenance than other options, such as UPVC. This is why many people are opting for ‘wood grain effect’ windows, as you can enjoy the natural look and feel of wood, but as they’re only wood effect, they don’t come with the hefty price tag.
In the face of climate change, an increasingly important aspect of home ownership is trying to live as sustainably as possible. Triple-glazed windows are a popular choice for those trying to cut down both their carbon footprint and household costs, and can often be added to existing properties as well. At Unique Windows, we take great care to source products that have an A energy rating as well as Energy Certificates.
