How to choose the right windows and doors for your home

If you're planning a renovation, there are many things to consider. The first is what style and type of windows and doors you want. This can be tricky because there are so many options available on the market right now, but with some planning it's easy to find what you're looking for. There are four main styles of windows: traditional, contemporary, industrial/modern, and transitional. Each has its own unique characteristics that appeal to different homeowners

Is energy efficiency important to you?

Choosing the right windows and doors for your home is one of the most important elements in creating a comfortable living environment. Windows can add to your home’s beauty, but they should also be energy efficient. There are many choices when it comes to choosing windows and doors: style, colour, size…


Choosing the right style will depend on what kind of look you want for your house; if it’s traditional then wood would be an obvious choice, if it’s modern then aluminium might suit better.

You have a lot of options when it comes to window styles:

Contemporary - This style features clean lines and minimal ornamentation, giving it a modern look that works well in many different settings. It also has a streamlined appearance that works well with contemporary furniture pieces like sleek sofas or simple tables made from glass or metal legs


Traditional - Traditional windows are usually rectangular with small panes separated by mullions (vertical bars). The most common type of traditional window is double-hung; these have lower sashes that slide up and down while upper sashes swing open outward on hinges at their sides (also called "casements"). Other common types include casement windows with fixed glass panes instead of movable ones; hopper or single-hung sash designs where both upper and lower sashes slide



Importance of choosing the right door

Choosing the right type of door for your space is a big decision, so you have to think about your needs and what kind of style you want.

It's crucial to choose wisely—the wrong doors can make an otherwise great room feel small or dated!
