How to Choose the Right Windows

Choosing the right windows for your home can be a challenging decision. Windows aren’t a cheap option and you need to make the best investment possible. As a result, you have to think about the style, the size, the shape, the level of glazing and everything in between. It can be incredibly overwhelming and difficult to know where to even start. Fortunately, here at Premier Windows, we are here to help. 


We are one of the country’s leading window manufacturers and suppliers, with more than forty years behind us, we know a thing or two about finding the right windows. We specialise in the creation of casement and sash windows, both of which are a great choice for your insulation and style. If you’re wondering how to choose the right windows for your home, here are our suggestions for choosing the right windows for your home.



  • Go with your Architectural Style



The best thing for your home is to have a cohesive look, something that will give your home street appeal and a style that you’re proud of. The best way to make sure that this happens is to keep a cohesive look is to choose windows that match the architectural style. You wouldn’t put uPVC casement windows on a period remodel, you’ll want something that will match the timelessness of the property, like a timber sash window. On the other hand, a sleek, modern building will look for something just as in keeping with the other window styles, to accentuate its style. If you’re not sure which look will suit your building, you can have a chat with one of our knowledgeable team members today to make sure that you have the ideal look. 



  • Understand what you Want from your Windows



Windows have been primarily designed to let light in, but they have other functions as well, such as being accessible as a door. Bifolding doors and sliding doors, in particular, do an amazing job of combining the benefits of natural light in a room with the convenience of an extra doorway. Of course, if you want your windows to also function as a door, you’ll need to order different windows for your space. You can speak to us about this if you’re interested in this idea. Importantly, you also need to think about how the windows can help keep the heat in your home, so you need to pick out the right glass for your home and for your budget.



  • Consider the Necessary Ventilation



Another essential role of your windows is to get fresh air moving through your rooms. This is really important because otherwise your room will feel stuffy and uncomfortable. Knowing how much ventilation you’ll need for your space can help to choose not just the number of windows but also the right type of windows, which can vary considerably based on your own needs. Fixed windows generally don’t open, and are a great choice for large rooms with expansive windows. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a room that is easy to ventilate, then you’ll want windows that open wide, allowing as much air to move as possible. Generally, you’ll end up using a combination of fixed and operable windows throughout your home to make the most of the natural daylight.
