How To Find The Right Windows For Your House Style

Different window styles

There’s a reason you don’t typically see contemporary style windows on cottages and other traditional buildings – it would spoil the character. It’s also not typical for new builds to have traditional looking windows either.

When replacing your windows, you should consider the style and age of your home so the new windows will complement the overall aesthetic.

Let TWC help you find the right windows for your style of property.

A traditional home

Modernising your home can apply to the performance rather than the look.

TWC offers many traditional window styles in our full range which would complement a cottage or listed building.

Both our Sliding Sash windows and Residence 9 windows are a 21st Century take on traditional styles of windows, combining modern benefits with plenty of period character.

Traditional Sliding Sash Windows

A contemporary home

Our range of Envisage Flush windows are ideal for contemporary properties.

The flush style looks clean and minimalistic, perfect for modern homeowners who want to reject the old-fashioned, bulky frames often found in older homes.

When selecting the right hardware, the age of your property should definitely be taken into consideration as it should match the style of the house. We have a varied collection of simple hardware for our Envisage Flush windows that will look great on most 21st Century homes.

If you live in a 20th Century property

If your home is in between modern and traditional, you have more freedom in choosing windows to complement your current property.

TWC’s Bay and Bow windows are within our UPVC Extreme range, providing modern benefits and adding plenty of character to 20th Century homes. They reach outwards, inviting more sunlight into your home and creating the illusion of spaciousness.

Casement windows are also an excellent option for their simple design and low maintenance care.
