Property owners always want to know about the best products when replacing their windows. This means finding ones which are high in quality, provide functionality and are in keeping with the style of their home. Whether its coloured window frames or weighing up the uPVC vs aluminium debate, there can seem like endless decisions to make. One of the requests we’ve seen an increase of is windows with some of the slimmest frames on the market.
Here are some of the reasons you should consider slimline frames for your new windows.
Why Are Slimmer Profiles Better?
Slimline frames are becoming the must-have feature for those choosing new windows for their property. Their attractive look fits into both heritage and modern homes, creating a smart, clean look where bulky frames look outdated. Chunky frames can often leave a room feeling smaller than it is, as well as reducing the amount of natural lighting coming in through the windows.
Why Choose Aluminium?
Aluminium is fast becoming the premium choice for new windows and doors, with its strong and lightweight composition producing some of the best products on the market. This robust material can be manufactured as one of the slimmest profile window and door frames on the market because of its strength. This results in larger panels of glass being chosen, as well as narrower sightlines achieved.
Open up Your Rooms
The effect of installing new windows with a slimline profile is that they make areas feel brighter, airier and larger. Homeowners find this helps to open up their rooms, as well as businesses who may want to create a more warm and welcoming feel in their spaces, including restaurants and hotels. The larger glass elements also bring the outside in, achieving expansive views of outdoor areas which feel uninterrupted thanks to the narrow sightlines available.
