Traditional Windows Designs

Windows, redefined.

Beautiful Windows for Every Home

The design of your windows throughout your property is integral to the overall aesthetics of your home. Cottage windows, Georgian Sash windows or even Victorian Bay windows are all beautifully traditional window designs that are important to replicate within a more traditional property.

Here at Evolution Windows we live and breath windows. We know what an important decision it is to select the perfect windows and glazing for your traditional property. So here are few things to consider before placing that window order.

Know your Property

It is really important to understand when your property was built as this will have a major impact on the window design and window furniture you might select. Casement windows were the most popular type of windows for cottage type property within the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Timber sash windows were the traditional window design mainly used within the Georgian and Victoria times and Bay windows became a lot more popular in the Victorian era.

If you are lucky enough to own a more historical property dating then you will know that most properties from the Tudor or older periods would feature smaller, leaded windows set within stone or timber.

Know your Neighbours

It is important to also consider the neighbouring properties when planning your homes’ windows as more than likely the surrounding properties will be from the same era and give you a clue to the best window design for your home. This is especially important if you are looking to replace your current windows with more period appropriate timber effect options.

Restoring or replacing traditional wooden windows both can prove to be very expensive. And you will still need to maintain the up-keep of the windows, whether that be sanding and painting them on a regular basis. A more cost effective and maintenance free option would be to consider timber effect windows from Evolution Windows. All of our windows are handcrafted and will deliver a beautiful aesthetic that will truly complement your home.
