Amidst an era of aesthetically pleasing properties having Instagram pages dedicated to their upkeep, the ability to be creative with your home is now more accessible than ever before.
Windows have a key part to play in this, with multiple options for size, shape, and colour available for those all-important daydreaming sessions from the comforts of your living room.
uPVC Windows are a very popular home improvement option, thanks to their relatively low cost and impressive durability, as well as the variety in shape and colour.
At Windows & Doors 2 You, we stock a variety of exceptional uPVC options, which this blog will help explore.
What are uPVC windows?
Manufactured from unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, uPVC is a firm form of plastic window frame that can be fitted in both double-glazing and triple-glazing.
In addition, uPVC windows are extremely energy efficient and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40%, as well as being highly secure.
There is a uPVC window style to complement any home aesthetic. With that in mind, we took a deep dive into some of the most on-trend window designs for 2024, to help make your home the most stylish on the street. Why not become your own window designer for the first time?
What are some of the most popular types of uPVC window?
One of the most popular choices for properties across the UK, casement windows are designed to meet the requirements of any style or home, whether you reside in a new build or a traditional house – thanks to their adaptability to any colour or design.
Traditionally, casement windows come with ultra-slim sightlines to let in the maximum amount of natural light, enhancing the beauty of your home whilst delivering the highest standard of security and thermal performance.
Bay & Bow windows excel in injecting light and a spacious feel to a room, thanks to their clean angular or beautiful curved shape design.
Extending beyond the property’s walls, the additional space can be utilised as a seating area, storage space, etc.
Flush fit windows fit perfectly into the uPVC window frame instead of overlapping it, creating a smooth finish to look great and natural in any property.
At Windows & Doors 2 You, our flush fit windows are all A+ energy rated, meaning they act as a lower-cost energy efficient window that reduces heat loss with higher thermal benefits than timber windows. This ends up saving you money on your heating bill due to their ability to retain heat – and who doesn’t like lower heating bills?
Designed to resemble a mechanically jointed timber window, whilst crafted with modern uPVC materials to provide enhanced security, thermal efficiency, and durability, flush sash windows offer an authentic appearance without additional maintenance.
What colours are in fashion for 2024?
One of the major attractions of uPVC windows is the wide range of colours they come in, meaning you can seamlessly match them with the aesthetic already in place at your home.
2024 has seen a real rise in woodgrain effects, providing your house with a natural look. Both our Irish and Golden Oak colours are great examples of this, and help to produce a wholesome, warm feel from the outside in.
However, that’s not to say that more traditional choices are yesterday’s news. New build properties often possess a clean style, which are perfectly complemented with colours such as Black, Grey, or White Foil.
If it’s a modern effect you’re looking for, look no further than matte colours. Options such as Cream Foil and Chartwell Green result in a perfect, powder-like appearance. Their lack of shine mean they blend well, particularly if you have doors or curtains in a similar colour.
Accessories – What’s Possible?
All forms of uPVC window can be accessorised, whether it be with quirky handles, decorative glass, or even customisable sash horns.
Flush fit windows can easily be customised to echo the frame colours, textures, and patterns of your furniture and décor. Monkey tail handles are a particularly popular choice and are perfectly suited to windows with a classical finish.
We also offer decorative glass across our range of windows, which can be used for a variety of reasons. One of these reasons is to protect the privacy of residents, and it’s also becoming increasingly popular to opt for stained or bevelled windows, both of which can add more dynamic lighting to a room. From a more practical standpoint, child restrictors can also be added.
Bay and Bow windows are often accompanied by Georgian bars, also known as astragal bars. As well as being decorative, people are increasingly turning to them as a security measure, with an additional layer of protection for the glass.
