Which Windows Are Right For My Home?

03 Nov 2022

Windows are an extremely important part of your home’s facade. Not only do they have to look right, but your choice of windows actually helps to determine the level of light that your home can enjoy. So it’s pretty important that you pick the right windows!

In this latest article from Conservatories and Windows Direct, we’ll be going over the various styles of windows we carry in-store and online. We’ll be detailing the benefits they could bring to your home, as well as their unique aesthetic qualities. Read on to learn more. 

Casement Windows

A classic! Casement windows are pretty much the standard windows you’ll find anywhere – whether you’re looking at windows in Telford or John O Groats. Casement windows open and close in one direction, allowing you the opportunity to access the exterior of your home and let fresh air in. 

Sliding Sash Windows

Rarer in the United Kingdom but no less elegant, sliding sash windows are an excellent choice if you’re looking for a window but aren’t entirely happy with the idea of unnecessary moving parts. These types of windows are very common in the United States. As a result, having them installed on your home gives it a sense of atlanticism and uniqueness that you just can’t find with casement windows. 

Elegant, atlantic, and minimalistic, sliding sash windows are a great choice for the homeowner looking for a way of making their house stand out from the crowd. 

Tilt-and-Turn Windows

A true trailblazer, tilt-and-turn windows are a relatively new development in the exciting world of window technology. Unlike sliding sash windows, which can only open upwards and close downwards, or casement windows, which can only open outwards, tilt-and-turn windows can open in several different ways. To let as much air in as possible, the tilt-and-turn window opens just like any other casement window. But if you just want to let in a little bit of air and increase ventilation just a little bit, the tilt-and-turn window can open at the top slightly. 

This extra option allows you more options than you would otherwise. For example, let’s say it’s raining and you want to open the window slightly to let some fresh air in. With both a sliding sash window and a casement window, you’d have to accept the fact that some water will get in through the window. With tilt-and-turn windows, however, their design means that you don’t have to worry about rain getting into your home. Likewise, tilt-and-turn windows are also ideal for bathroom windows, where you may only be opening the window to ventilate after a shower. 

Forward-thinking and adaptable, we highly recommend tilt-and-turn windows for any home.
