If you are considering new windows for your home, or you want to know whether the frames at a prospective new house are in fashion, we have put together a list of popular styles that feature on contemporary properties to give you some inspiration. From the practicality of tilt and turn windows to the elegant style of sash windows, this list is sure to have something for everyone.

Casement windows

Casement windows are a classic style which beautifully blends style and simplicity. They are extremely stylish, suiting the exterior of most homes neatly and seamlessly. With excellent insulation qualities and the ability to be opened without letting in rainwater, they make for an extremely practical addition to any property. They are also versatile when it comes to where they can be installed in your home, being suitable for both bathrooms and rooms upstairs. Plus, they can be customised to suit your exterior. A convenient mechanism means they can be opened and closed with ease, and they can be unlocked and opened at a 90-degree angle to allow for a thorough clean.

Sash windows

Sash windows are a beautiful style which can be customised to suit any property perfectly. They are one of the country’s most popular windows styles, featuring two overlapping sashes which add plenty of aesthetic value. Modern sash windows also provide the added layer of insulation that’s needed to reduce energy bills. With sash panes that can be designed to slide up and down, these windows are very easy to keep clean and looking their best. A range of customisation options enable you to put a personal touch on your sash windows, with the choice of colour, texture, handle, and finish being down to your discretion.

Tilt and turn windows

Tilt and turn windows are highly customisable, with a range of options available for how you want them to be opened. They are a stylish, low-maintenance window style which provide security for any home due to their opening mechanism. This style complements properties with a modern design and is ideal for accommodating the tight spaces that might be found on the outside of smaller rooms, such as a bathroom. Because tilt and turn windows open inwardly, they are extremely easy to keep clean.

Popular window materials

When considering how attractive a window is, there is more to think about than just the style. Once you’ve settled on this first aspect, it then becomes important to think about your material choice. The material used to construct the frames is highly important for both the quality and appearance of the windows. Two of the most popular materials used to make window frames are uPVC and aluminium. uPVC is an extremely stylish material that complements most contemporary homes, while aluminium is a stylish option with minimal frames that adds security to your property. This can give you added peace of mind.

Here at Channel Windows, we can create uPVC or aluminium windows in a style that suits your needs. Your windows will be tailored to fulfil all requirements you have, as well as being carefully designed to suit the aesthetic of your property.
