The options are limitless – Ben gives us the latest trends in window and door design.
Crittall doors: Crittall metal-framed glass doors continue to be popular as they are increasingly used for internal walls as well as exteriors. “Through design, we can adapt the utilitarian factory look to one that fits seamlessly in a period property, making them perfect for both new and old.” The simple frames can be powder coated in any colour to give a home a dramatic look both inside and out, they can also be fire-rated and double-glazed too.

Minimalist floor-to-ceiling glass walls: Create stunning corner-to-corner windows with uninterrupted panoramic views that add a greater sense of space to your home, inviting the outside in. “When it comes to customer preferences for windows, bigger is better; people want to connect with the environment outside,” adds Ben. Our Cortizo range of minimal framed sliding doors or bifold door systems maximise the light, enhancing your living spaces bringing the outside, inside.
Structural frameless roof lights: Adding glass skylights bring in much needed light without compromising on wall space. “By having a frameless roof light, you have nothing obstructing your view.”
Roof lights can be incorporated into almost any type of property and can be made to fit any size or shape of roof. There is also a wide range of different options in terms of size and shape, opening or fixed, different colours and glass types. You can choose an automated ventilation system that can be opened or closed remotely.
Oriel windows: Space-saving and stylish, these 3D glass installations are on the rise. Soaked in natural light, these intimate nooks offer practical flexibility for a window seat, storage, or a place to display your plants, adding a focal point for any room as well as “an enticing area for relaxation in any season.”
Ben and his team have a wealth of knowledge and experience in glazing and window design. In their showroom in Wandsworth (by appointment only) they design, manufacture and install windows for residential and commercial properties, from large developments to small renovations.
