Choosing the Right Accessories for your Windows
If you’re looking at your windows and thinking you might need a bit of an update; then you might be looking through our website looking at all the different styles we have. At SCI Windows, we offer an extensive range of windows, with a variety of different styles and colours. We can offer both double and triple glazed, as well as SlimSash, PVCu, Aluminium, FlushSash, and more. But have you thought about choosing the right accessories for your windows?
You’ll see on our brochures page each style of window comes with a wide range of accessories that you can choose from. You will need to think carefully about the types of accessories that will match the style of your home.
The best example of this is if you have a period property. Older homes have their own unique style and you need to be sensitive about this. You will want to choose the correct window styling and accessories to enhance the look of a home like this. Otherwise it could severely lower the value and saleability of your house. Kerb appeal is vital in older and period properties and is one of the best selling points. There are many beautiful aspects for these and so you must think carefully about choosing correctly. Double glazing should not detract from selling a period property if you have the right style window. Many of our woodgrain windows look exactly like traditional wood, but with all the security and benefits of PVCu.
You’ll also want to think about the colour of your window frames so that it matches with other features of your home. Period properties look great with white, but they can also look fabulous with Chartwell Green or even Anthracite Grey.
If you’d like to find out more about the window accessories and styles we have to offer for each style of window, visit our brochures page.
Whilst many windows come with standard window handles; there are still plenty of options when it comes to choosing the finish of your door handle. An example of the range of colours that are available is from Platinum NRG.
With their PVCu Windows, you can choose from white, black, bright chrome, gold, antique black, graphite, bright bronze, and anthracite.
If you’re looking for a style of handle that’s more in-keeping with your home, you can also choose from more traditional tear-drop handles, or monkey tail handles. Monkey tail handles can also be paired with a ‘Peg and Stay’, at the bottom of the window. These more traditional styles of handles are very in-keeping with period homes and would be perfect to put the finishing touches to your new windows.
Choosing the Right Window Frame
Whilst white is normally the most popular choice for new windows, there are in fact a wide range of different colours and effects you can choose from. Perhaps you would like to have a darker colour on the outside frame and white on the interior to keep it brighter inside? Or perhaps you’d like to go for a sculptured white grain wood-effect frame that is in keeping with other windows or doors on your property. Each window manufacturer has many different frame styles.
If you think that stained glass is only for churches, then you’d be wrong! If you have a small feature window perhaps, you can turn it into a really beautiful focal point. Whatever style or pattern you choose; you can be sure it will bring plenty of interesting colours, lighting and patterns into your home. Take a look at the decorative options that our window manufacturers have to offer.
