What Details Can I Add to Double Glazed Windows?
It’s easy to think double glazed windows are an off-the-shelf item. It’s also easy to think you have a limited choice of options when it comes to the way your windows look.
The truth is very different. Quality double glazed windows are made to order for you and your home. In the case of Majestic Designs, your double glazed windows will be made by our skilled team at our factories in Cheddar.
Because your double glazing is made to order, there are lots of choices you can make to personalise your windows and add details that suit you and your home. Here are some examples of the details you can add.
Different shaped double glazing
First things first. Because double glazed windows are made to order, they can be any shape you like. Bay and bow windows are an option. So are arched windows and gothic windows. You can even have round windows.
Coloured frames on your windows
When you think double glazing you often think white. That’s far from the case these days. In fact, you can choose from a wealth of different colour window frames. If you like heritage style or have a period home, choose a classic colour such as cream or Chartwell green. If you like designer style, anthracite grey could be for you. If you’re a traditionalist, a woodgrain finish might be the answer. Whichever colour or finish you choose, the quality will always be first class. UPVC coloured windows have a highly durable finish. The colour won’t fade, peel or rot and will stay looking bright and fresh for years to come – so there’s no maintenance needed!
Different types of glass design
Obscure glass is great for places where you want to let the light in but don’t want people to be able to see in. Windows on side elevations of your home must use obscure glass. You’ll want to use obscure glass on your toilet and bathroom windows. It’s also a popular choice on entrance doors and side panels.
There are lots of designs you can choose from. From very plain, to geometric to floral, you can choose the style that’s right for you.
Leaded light options
If you live in a period home or want to introduce a point of interest, leaded light windows are a great option. Leaded panes add real interest to a home and we have a wealth of different designs for you to choose from. To look at the options, just call into our window showroom in Cheddar.
Astragal or internal Georgian bars for heritage style
Another option for heritage homes is to add glazing bars that replicate Georgian windows. You can go for classic options or – because your windows are made to order – you can have the latticework look you have designed yourself. You can choose to have the bars fitted inside the double glazed unit, which means they’ll be a lot easier to clean than their timber equivalents. Or you can choose to have the bars fitted externally for a traditional cottage style.
