How To Pinpoint The Right Window Style For Your Property

The Perfect Window Styles For Your House

It would be a big gamble if you bought new windows for your house without knowing which window styles are likely to suit it most.

You would likely be mortified if you ended up with windows that didn’t match the character of the building and spoiled it.

Planet has been involved in the window industry for years, so we can advise you on window styles to ensure you don’t make an expensive mistake.

Period residences

Cottages and period homes are so characterful and the windows they have contribute to their personality. This make-up needs to be kept when their windows are being replaced.

Luckily, Planet has various styles that work brilliantly with such property types, including sliding sash windows. A design that’s been around for generations, our sliding sashes mimic the appearance of traditional equivalents, but offer greater security and energy efficiency.

For windows with authentic glazing bars, ask Planet about cottage windows, which will give you that original cottage aesthetic.

Modern residences

After a first set of new windows for a new-build home or just want new windows that will sustain the contemporary look of your property? Our amazingly slim aluminium windows will be perfect.

The glazed section in them fills almost the entire window profile, resulting in a high transference of natural light into your living space.

You can also have our aluminium windows supplied in a host of on-trend colours as they can be finished in multiple fashionable RAL shades.

Aluminium Windows And Bi-Folding Doors

Not period, nor modern

Let’s refer to this type of property as a 20th Century home. For this house style, you can almost pick any form of window replacement and it should complement it.

This gives you the freedom to select a window that you most love the look of and that functions how you want it to.

It may see you opt for a Bay and Bow window, which will add more depth and space to a room, as well as inject character into your house. Casement windows may also be a design you consider if you want one of the most classic of window styles, without any tiresome upkeep.
