Remember when nearly every PVCu window was either white or occasionally mahogany? If the answer is yes, then you won’t need reminding that things are changing rapidly and in fact now, around a third of homeowners are choosing coloured or woodgrain-finish PVCu windows, with a few distinct trends emerging.
The heritage look is back in a big way and not just in traditional homes but also in brand new properties, and cottage-style shades are just as popular in the suburbs as in the sticks!
You can make the most of this trend by incorporating classic yet contemporary shades such as French Grey and Chartwell Green; ice-cream shades are also becoming increasingly popular, especially matched with retro-style flush sash frames.
The choice of woodgrains is changing too – the ever-popular Mahogany and Rosewood are now being joined by lighter, gentler shades.
Nowadays, you can personalise your new windows down to the finest detail with hardware options which are now available in a plethora of colours from Antique Black to Bronze – gone are the days of standard white or chrome handles!
