Windows and doors are not only responsible for maximising the amount of natural light a house gets and keeping it secure, but they also have the potential to completely transform the look of the property. 

With that being said, it is important to choose the right style of windows and doors that best suit a given property so that they don’t look out of place.

But with so many different styles available, making the right choice can be daunting.

In this article, we take a look at how to best match the windows and doors to a property no matter its style. 

Traditional properties 

When it comes to choosing windows and doors for traditional properties, it is important to be sensitive to the character of the building. For example, a tilt and turn window may look great on a modern house but for a traditional property, it may not be the best choice. 

Sliding sash windows are one type of window that has been a feature on houses for decades but still is a popular choice of window today. A sliding sash window will perfectly complement the aesthetic of a traditionally-styled property whilst offering a country feel. 

In terms of door options, a timber and timber-effect door will create a classic entryway that seamlessly blends in with the aesthetic of the house. 

Not only does the style matter but the colour of the windows and doors will undoubtedly affect the appearance of the house exterior. For example, a Chartwell green door will create a timeless centre-piece that will look right on a period property.

Modern homes 

When it come to modern properties, it’s good to choose windows that feature less framework to create a contemporary look that utilises natural light. 

Tilt and turn windows are a great choice for modern homes – combining style with ultimate functionality. Thanks to their unique design tilt and turn windows can open in a number of ways offering  greater flexibility. 

This desire for flexibility in modern design also applies to the front door. When it comes to choosing a front door, it should reflect the architecture of the house. Aluminium doors are growing in popularity among those who are looking to add a unique, contemporary look to their property. The flexibility of aluminium doors means they can be designed and shaped to create a look that is truly unique. 

In modern design, the idea is “less is more” but this doesn’t mean that you can’t be adventurous with the colours you choose for your windows and doors. Although grey is a popular colour in terms of modern windows and doors, we are starting to see a shift towards more vibrant colours. By opting for example for a bright colour like yellow, you can create an entrance that is warm and inviting. 

Commercial buildings 

Whether you’re a designer or owner of commercial development you want ensure that the windows and doors you choose are not only functional but also add extra kerb appeal to your building. It is important that they complement the architectural design and styling of the development. 

Aluminium windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular with developers due to their low-maintenance and flexibility in their design. Their strength means that they can support a larger opening which is ideal for bigger developments. 

The casement window is one of the most popular windows and wouldn’t look out of place on any style of building. This means that no matter the look you are looking to achieve, a casement window is a safe yet stylish option. 

By giving added thought to the style of windows and doors you choose, you can achieve a look that will enhance the appearance of a property.
