Here are some great window styles and examples of how to maximise the potential of your windows...
Bay and bow windows are great to use in a living room as they can allow for window seats to be created and also for homeowners to have extra space by adding a large windowsill to display their favourite knick knacks, family photographs or even a simple bunch of fresh flowers.
Top tipWindow Seats are a traditional design feature that are set to stay. Whether you want to curl up with a new book, or simply spend your Sunday watching the world go by, with a brew in hand, views can be used to unwind and create a quiet, personal space.
Tilt and turn windows are also an ideal downstairs option, especially for rooms which don’t require a lot of privacy and need blinds hanging. The tilt and turn allows for lots of air and natural light to flood into your room. They’re great to be used as a ventilation mechanism for the kitchen to diffuse any lingering cooking smells as they can be opened quite far to maximize on the amount of air flow.
Top TipAdding new windows or doors don't just provide aesthetic benefits - they improve insulation, helping lower your energy bills too.
Casement windows are a better fit for the bedroom as they allow homeowners to have blinds put up, such as venetian blinds which are can only be hung if windows open outwards.
Top tipMake sure you have some kind of window opener in your bedroom for ventilation and for that burst of fresh air in the mornings and on warm nights.
