Wooden windows can instantly transform your home. Here we take a look at how wooden windows have immediately updated the look of one previously outdated and tired home.
In the living room the large white windows are replaced with beautiful wooden windows, including French doors out to the patio. They are painted modern light grey on the outside and a pale sage green on the inside meaning both the interior and exterior are improved. One advantage of wooden windows is they can be different colours on either sides but also can be easily repainted to update the colour scheme.
The pale grey kitchen windows give the kitchen a calm and fresh feel.
Bespoke, made to measure wooden windows mean you can make the most of the light available to you, even in the smallest of spaces.
Using the same shade to paint other wooden areas in the home, such as the skirting board and bench, can coordinate the interior colour scheme.
The bi-fold wooden doors lead out to the decking area making this a great entertainment space and really blending the outdoors and indoor areas together. Good use of the natural material, wood, compliments the natural environment of this home.
A stable door is another great feature which looks great and adds a country charm to even modern properties and has practical benefits too. Young children and animals can be kept indoors when needed but the top half kept open for fresh air.
Wooden windows look as good in modern properties as in period properties. As well as their classic and versatile look they also offer other benefits. They are the most environmentally friendly, most cost effective, durable and will keep your home warm and draught free.
