Traditional Types of Windows
In the 19th Century, the Victorian era brought the 'two up two down' Victorian sash window design, which remains a popular feature on period homes today. Relaxed planning permissions at the time meant ground floor windows no longer had to be flush with the exterior wall, and so the three-sided bay sash Victorian window was also born. Its distinctive design creates a feeling of space and allows more natural light into your home. Replace your period Victorian windows with Anglian and choose from a range of materials, colours, sizes and configurations.
Dating back to the 18th Century, Georgian Windows have smaller panes of glass inside the frame held together by thinner horizontal and vertical bars. Creating large panes of glass at the time was hindered by technology, as it was not possible to make a consistent sheet of glass much bigger than a few feet. This traditional type of window has been reimagined for the modern-day and is still very popular. Our Cottage window range is available in timber and uPVC up to an A+ energy rating.
Georgian window style is available in Cottage designs
At the start of the 20th Century, houses were more spacious, and with more space came more windows. Edwardian windows have the Georgian bar design on the top half of the window and a large glazed area on the bottom. While the sash type of window remained popular, they were joined by the casement window and started to vary in size and shape. Our take on these traditional types of windows includes uPVC and timber sash windows, and uPVC, timber and aluminium casement window options.

How to Choose a Window Type
Match the architectural aesthetic of your home
Consider their location in your home
Find the windows in your property that are west facing and those in the darkest parts of the house. It could help inform the style you choose to make the most of the natural light in your home.
Think about ventilation
When choosing what type of windows to have in your home, it is worth considering how ventilated you need your property to be as airflow might impact the design you choose.
Coordinate with your décor
Our dual-colour window option means you can pick a coloured exterior shade for your window frames and a white interior. The white inside keeps colours from clashing, and the coloured exterior provides a brand new look to the outside of your home.
Consult your budget
Some window types or materials are more costly than others, so if you are working to a budget it is worth getting a quote for each option you want to explore. For example, uPVC frames are usually the most cost-effective option, with wood and aluminium worthy long-term options to consider.
