Replacement windows – do you stick to the same style or try something new? Our quick guide to your options!

27th April 2018 |

Window styles

Do you need to replace your windows? Have you noticed that they no longer retain heat? Do they let in exterior noise? Have they become difficult to open and close? Have their frames faded, become brittle, or discoloured? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time for a window upgrade.

Replacing your windows with modern energy efficient alternatives is an excellent idea. At Majestic Designs, all our double glazed windows are A+14 rated for energy efficiency. This means that with a Majestic window replacement, you’ll enjoy a warmer, more comfortable home and make potential savings on reduced energy bills.

So, you’ve decided to replace your windows but what do you want your new windows to look like? Do you want them to be identical to your existing windows in terms of style? Or perhaps you want to give your property a completely new look? The ultimate decision will be down to personal preference. Here are a few things to consider before you make the final decision.

Replacing windows with a similar style

If you live in a more traditional property or a unique country cottage, your windows may be more distinctive than those of more modern properties. In this situation it’s usually best to find a replacement window which is similar in style to your originals. Many traditional properties had their windows designed to complement the overall building’s aesthetic. If you have sash windows, for example, try to replace with a contemporary sash window to match the original style.

If you live in a property with timber windows, you may want to replicate the traditional timber style. Fortunately, at Majestic Designs, our windows are available finished with authentic wood effect foils and realistic natural timber colours. We can even add Georgian or astragal bars to your windows to tastefully replicate the heritage style.

Trying something new

Going from one type of window to another can have a huge impact on your property’s ‘look’. When done well, it can massively improve your home’s style and add considerable market value. Tilt and turn windows are a good example of a modern and innovative window style which can dramatically alter a property’s appearance. Their two-way opening function will also add a new dimension to any home, with excellent ventilation capacity and easy cleaning access from inside.

Another way to change your home’s window style is to replace standard casement windows with flush casement windows. Flush casements look great on both modern and traditional properties. Their clean, square lines will enhance your home’s exterior aesthetic providing a smooth finish which is both high performing and aesthetically attractive.
