Three Things to Consider When Choosing Windows for a Modern Property
With tough lockdown restrictions keeping us inside in recent months, many of us have been spending more time at home. As a result, you may have been inspired to take up the challenge of renovating your property and giving it the modern makeover you’ve always wanted. A great way to do this is by refreshing the style of your windows.
Windows say a lot about the character and personality of your house, which is why it’s important to pick a design that doesn’t conflict with your desire to create a contemporary home. To help you through this process, Input Joinery have compiled a list of three things we think are important to consider when choosing modern window styles for your home.
1. Make your windows a feature
Nothing says ‘modern property’ quite like large, expansive windows. With the number of daylight hours increasing as we begin to approach spring, casement windows have the added benefit of allowing more natural light into your home. However, beware that larger modern windows come with a caveat of reduced practicality (think cleaning and privacy). Taking this into account, if a modern window style is what you’re searching for, remember to opt for a size that is big enough to showcase your property’s top features without compromising on your privacy.
2. Functionality and style
Bay and sliding Sash windows are very typical of period properties, providing a sense of tradition and grandeur. However, if adding a contemporary touch to your home’s exterior is your goal, we recommend going with casement windows. At Input Joinery, we have a variety of casements to choose from, but for the sleekest looking and most modern window design, we recommend going with our flush casement windows. Easy clean friction hingers, double weather strip seal and multi-point Espag locking are among some of the flush casement window’s feature highlights. And with an array of designs to choose from, there’s more than likely a style to match the needs of your modern property.
3. Keep it colourful with aluminium windows
Along with their size, window material also has a big impact on the look and feel of your house. Aluminium windows are a particular favourite for owners of contemporary builds, mostly because they can be powder coated in any colour. They are also very durable, more resistant to corrosion, low maintenance and cheaper compared to more traditional window materials such as timber.
