Traditional Kitchen Window Styles
When it comes to long-lasting features in your home – such as your windows – there’s often a reason why a traditional design is best. Having stood the test of time, these designs are sure to keep their classy appearance, and won’t result in dated-looking windows later down the line.
But how do you achieve a traditional kitchen window look? Read on for our top tips.
Start with the material
Wooden windows are great for implementing a more traditional feel in your kitchen, and they’re much more durable than you may at first think. At Anglian, our wooden windows are sustainably sourced, and feature multi-point locking systems, so you can rest assured that they’re of the highest quality.
The styles of wood available can add a wonderful touch of character too. You can customise your colour, and even choose between hardwood or softwood timber to make your windows completely unique to your home.
Consider the shape
Particular shapes can evoke a more contemporary feel and are best avoided if you’re looking to create a traditional style. For example, casement windows and tilt and turn styles add a modern touch to the home, but more traditional options such as sash windows and more unusual shapes can add a historical feel to the structure of your home.
Further to that, Regency-shaped and multi-sided windows are particularly traditional, and work exceptionally well in large kitchen spaces.
Add a little colour
Incorporating colour in your windows can also add a traditional feel. You can do this by opting for coloured frames – browns and greens are a great choice for achieving this look – or by adding colour to the glass panes themselves.
There are even more traditional options to consider when thinking about your glass panes too – decorative glass might include colours, patterns or even images, while obscure glass or etched glass can help add privacy to your windows.
